meet alli.

Howdy Little Lovebird readers!  Oh I'm so happy to be here today.  A little jealous that the lovebirds are in Italy, but still honored to be here hanging out on their darn adorable blog.  I'm Alli and I blog over at Life on LeRoy.  I blog about life, family, love, toddler-hood, recipes, DIY's, fashion, just about anything and everything.  Stop by and say hi sometime, I would love to meet you!

My husband and I are huge outdoors people.  When it came time to begin planning our honeymoon (almost 4 years ago now) we knew we didn't want to go sit on a beach somewhere.  We wanted to hike, fish and explore the countryside.  We initially planned on not having a plan and just driving out West and seeing where the road takes us.  Then I got scared and decided lets at least have a plan on where we would lay our heads at night.  We found a beautiful cabin on the Yellowstone River in Montana and it was basically a match made in heaven.  It was prefect for us and we knew it right away.

We spent our honeymoon hiking in the Bear Tooth Mountains, fly fishing on the Yellowstone River, exploring nearby towns, making amazing food, enjoying drinks every night by the river, and taking an amazing amount of pictures ;)

Have I convinced you to check out Montana yet?  It's seriously breathtaking you guys!
We cannot wait to go back and have even talked about moving their someday.
It was my first experience seeing mountains and I fell in love.

A view I will never forget

Isn't this cabin amazing?!
It seems so out of place being in the middle of no where along the Yellowstone River in MT.
The inside was pretty much to die for too!

Our view from our cabin

I had to include this picture, it cracks me up.  We drove out to MT and the drive was 14 hours from where we live in Wisconsin.  On our way out we stayed in a hotel one night, but on our way home we drove right through.  In order to keep myself occupied as the passenger I played a lot of loud music and rocked out!  Seriously rocked out!

Thanks so much Elease for allowing me to take over your blog for the day.  I truly enjoyed reliving our honeymoon again.  Montana has truly left a soft spot in my heart and it's my dream vacation destination. 

If you ever get a chance to visit MT, I highly recommend it.


  1. This seems so amazing. I wish I could go right now!

  2. The views are really amazing! Wish I could visit someday!

  3. My husband and I have been wanting to taken a similar vacation--just the two of us with mountains and a river. I think you may have us sold on MT. Those views and that cabin. Thank you a billion times over. Seriously, this is just what we have been looking for.

    1. Hey Caitlin - feel free to email me if you want any information about the place we stayed at! It was perfection!

  4. Your honeymoon sounds like a ton of fun! While I'd love to sit on a beach and sip drinks all day, I'd also take a cabin in the mountains any day of the week! LOVE Montana. It really is a gorgeous state. All of it.
