We bring Love & Bossa Nova everywhere we go…and last week we decided to go to North Carolina to go hike to waterfalls and just be away for a few days! We ended up staying in this beautiful little log cabin in the mountains right by he Dupont State Forest, and it was lovely! We did a livestream from the cabin – if you missed it you can still watch it.
