Snow no More!!! 3 Mar 2015, 4:42 am

At Christmas time we dream about it. Sing of sleigh bells and a "winter wonderland". But I believe, like all good things, it should come to an end. After two weeks of possibilities and different showings I believe that we are all ready for a good ole bought of sunshine and warmth. And if we are ready for it here in the South, can you imagine what its like for those folks up North? Thank God I'm a Southern Girl!! Maybe if we all started planning those Spring break trips Mother Nature would get the hint! Here's to loving the snow when its here, but loving it more when it leaves!



Spring Frogs 2 Mar 2015, 4:22 am

In the valley below, frogs are croaking.  Are they aware it is only March?  The temperatures have not yet consistently stayed above 40 degrees, could it be they know something we don't?  Has there been a slight shift in wind, do they feel the warmth hovering there?  Perhaps nature pays better attention than the human race.  Caught up in our day to day hustle we miss the slight changes around us.  After all, sometimes in a snow covered valley daffodils can be found  blooming in anticipation of the spring thaw.

A Leap of Faith 1 Mar 2015, 4:31 am

Her coat was orange and corse.  Her paws cut up.  Every bone in her body was protruding.  Much like our first visit to see The Secret, we almost did not visit her.  Our lives were changing and we really did not need another dog.  But meet her we did and instantly fell in love.  My sweet Hannah stole our heart.  When my eyes met her hazel and blue it was instant.  Like when I first laid eyes on the view beyond The Secret lodge.  It was a leap of faith the day I saw her for the first time, like the leap we took several months later.  Sometimes you just gotta go with your heart!

Sophie's Vision 27 Feb 2015, 3:36 am

Stepping out of the door, the cold wind hits you square in the face. In the early hours of the morning it seems particularly harsh. And every morning, rain or shine, hot or cold, they wake at 5:30. Now, I'm no Dr. Doolittle, but I can tell you what Sophie is thinking. She hates the cold, so I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are visions of hugging a warm pool deck running through her little head. As she braves the cold to go potty all she wants is to snuggle back under the covers until summer. I think the pool is calling all our names. Bring on Summer!!!!

Snowfall on the Bluff 26 Feb 2015, 4:28 am

Solitude. The landscape in front may change, but the feeling still exists. Many have sat here, and many have said, "You just can't capture the feeling and the beauty in a photo". No truer words have been spoken.

Waiting on the Snow! 25 Feb 2015, 3:53 am

As we are missing the warmth of a sunny summer morning, the sounds of the crickets and the frogs just think how sweet it will all be after we have endured the harshness of winter! Belly on up to the fire, soon enough the hummingbirds will return as well as the scorching summer afternoons. We will be wishing soon enough for a crisp,cold winter day to return.

Winter Reflections 24 Feb 2015, 5:53 am

It's eerie how quiet a winter morning can be, you can almost hear the ice forming on the branches of the trees. Even the birds are absent from the feeders in the early morning cold. What a good time to just sit and be still. Alone with your thoughts and a cup of coffee or with no thoughts at all. Just quiet reflection. And while the sweet warmth of summer mornings is missed, as is the twittering of the birds and the sounds of the crickets, winter does have its own attributes. If nothing else, it is a time for rest. All things should be appreciated in their own time.

The Ides of March 23 Feb 2015, 5:58 am

The Ides of March will soon be upon us and for those of you unfamiliar with Roman history this statement referred to the 15th day of the month. Due to a statement made to Julius Caesar it has come to mean a sense of foreboding. But, enough of the history lesson, for us it means that St. Patrick's day will soon be upon us and for those of you who have visited us in the past you know what that means. Music, food and fun!!! So, gather up a few of your closest friends and come join us the weekend of the 14th for a good time. Who knows, maybe the weather will bless us with a rainbow off the bluff!!! It can't stay cold forever!

 22 Feb 2015, 1:37 pm

As a glass half full kinda gal I am trying to look onward, towards the warm months of spring! Last year the flowers began to pop out in late March which is really not that far away. So, who's up for a night in a treehouse? Or, is there someone you would like to put in Jail for the weekend? How about a romantic spring getaway in the Sugar Shack? Any one of these plus rooms in our lodge are available to any wishing to shake off their winter coats and sit on the patio enjoying the sunshine, the flowers, the birds and of course the best view Alabama has to offer!!!! There's plenty to do in Northern Alabama, just come give us a try!!!!

Just around the Corner!!!! 20 Feb 2015, 5:21 am

TGIF Everyone!!!  Yes, its going to be a bit of a gloomy weekend.  But let's not forget that we must endure the winter to get to the spring and summer.  Soon the snow of winter will be replaced with the blossoms falling like snow from the Bradford Pear trees and the birds will be anxiously fluttering about readying their nests for an upcoming brood.  It might even be a great weekend for some spring planning of your own.  What better way to get through a wet, winter weekend than to make plans for a warm, spring evening on our patio watching the birds, enjoying the flowers and the new friends you are sure to make!  Give us a call, spring will fill up fast and you know you want to have your own "Secret" getaway!
