The Stories Behind The Scents


It’s a blessed day if you can spot the treasured lady slipper along the gunflint trail while picking wild blueberries among the great Norway pines. Only in Minnesota.

At The Lake

Feeling the fragrant summer breeze off the lake. Sitting on the dock with sun kissed skin watchin the sun go down when we’re At the Lake.


Our great grandmother’s childhood home still stands in Tvedestrand, Norway. Some say the faint scents of cardamom and lingonberry still linger there to make you feel Velkommen.

Vera's Garden

She had her favorite flowers in her garden. Peonies, lilies of the valley and roses. She sat for hours taking in the beauty of Vera’s Garden.

Cabin Breakfast

Waking up to the smell of grandma making pancakes and bacon was our favorite Cabin Breakfast.

My Sister's Porch

The best cup of coffee to have is with good conversation and fellowship on My sister’s Porch.

Midnight Vanilla

This warm sugary vanilla invites you for a cozy night in with Midnight Vanilla.

Psalm 23

He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Psalm 23

Seasons Blessings

Filling her old kettle with fruits and spices from this year’s harvest, great-grandma made her home fill with rich scents of the Season’s Blessings.

Cabin Nights

Sitting by the fire with stars breaking through the tall oaks and pines. Hearing the loons calling and the occasional fish jump are our favorite Cabin Nights.

Jack Pine

In the evening just before sunset, grandpa would say “lets go look for deer and see how many we can find”. So we would grab our tally books to keep track of all the deer we would find looking through those tall Jack Pines.


I said, cowboy take me away. Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue. Set me free, oh, I pray.
Closer to heaven above and closer to you, closer to you

White Birch
Taking in the beauty of God’s creation on a crisp morning’s walk. A favorite is the pretty White Birch.
