Pay it Forward today and every day!

So Thursday was International Pay It Forward Day. I love the idea and thought I would share this with all of you!
  Pay It Forward Day is now recognized and celebrated in 50 countries, so just think of the impact small acts can have on a global scale.
There is tremendous power and positive energy in giving – it is a shame that not enough people have experienced it to the fullest. Pay It Forward Day is about all people, from all walks of life giving to someone else and making a positive difference. At last count there were more than 38 countries around the world participating in the day.
  So why Pay it Forward?
  • To encourage all of us to embrace the incredible power of giving.
  • To show each other that we care and that there is love, hope and magic all around us.
  • To know that we may be only one person in this world, but to one person, at one time, we are the world
  Make a difference and experience the true power of giving. Thank you for your support. Together we can change the world – one good deed at a time!
  Whether it is holding the door for someone, allowing a car to pass, or paying for someones coffee, I am going to make sure to "Pay It Forward" and do unto others.  I ask that everyone in our community do the same, even if just for today.  If someone does a kind gesture towards you, be sure to do one to someone else.  If you witness a kind act, at a minimum, commend the person performing it.  We WILL have an impact and we WILL make the world a better place for our kids, our kids' kids, and even a random strangers kids. 

  It starts with YOU yes YOU sitting there, even you can make a difference in the world today! So lets remind ourselves that we are ALL ONE and by doing for others you are in turn giving to yourself, our community, and the entire world. Spread the love where ever you may find your self today!

Really Yummy Easter Egg

Look at this! I think this is such a cute idea for Easter. All this is is a cake ball shaped into an Easter Egg and decorated like one sitting in green colored coconut grass.

The outside is covered with chocolate and then butter cream for the details.

Make these for your Easter holiday dessert and see what your family and/or guests say.

Happy Easter to All!

Nugget - The Gold Rush Bunny : )

Getting ready for Easter

We are ready for our check in's this weekend!!! Our guests get to choose from magical eggs that hold surprises for their stays. Each egg is different and so far we have guests that won chocolate Easter bunnies, discounts from next stay.....and that's all I'm saying cause it a surprise!

Making your check in special after driving a windy mountain road is just another one of our specialties. :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!!!!

Our Easter Eggstravaganza is a game we play with our arriving guests. We have some purdy eggs all nestled in one of our wooden boxes for our guests to choose from. Prizes are hidden inside the egg and waiting for our guest to open the egg to see what they have won.

Prizes range from a free chocolate Easter Bunny to discounts on your stay at check-in or discounts that can be doubled if you make a stay before you depart. Every egg is a winner and every one of our guests are always winners when they choose to stay in one of our cabins.
