We are wanderlust kind of people, but one of our favorite places is his family cabin outside of Ennis, Montana. A wood slice state sign was definitely a fitting way to feature our favorite place. Then I got to thinking that this type of DIY wood sign would be perfect for documenting all of our travels. Stay tuned on that…

Cabin life. We sure do love visiting the family cabin. It’s about 45 minutes from Yellowstone and set directly across from the Madison River. Such a beautiful part of the country and the perfect place to relax.
