23/52 – The cottage is my happy place. I’ve always loved being near the water and the sight and sounds of it are near and dear to me. I can feel my whole body relax when we pull into the cottage drive knowing that soon I will be hearing the loons call and the waves lap onto the dock. I love that you love it too.
22/52 – An impromptu visit to the lake late this afternoon for a short 24 hour visit. Managed to get the boat in, go for a boat ride to the marina for ice cream, fish for pike and toast some marshmallows. I call that a successful 24 hours!
22/52 – Out of nowhere you asked me to teach you how to play chess. It’s not my favourite game. I have no patience for it and because of that I am an awful player. But I was happy to teach you. You did pretty well. And when you became bored with it, your brother subbed in for you. And quickly beat me soundly.
21/52 – When the others are away at playdates and birthday parties, some one-on-one mama and Iris mani-pedis are called for. Magenta nails and sparkly black toes were today’s choice.
20/52 – Yeah for long weekends spent with family. We are so lucky to not only have nana and grampa in our lives, but also to have them be so actively involved. Here’s to many more memory making time together.
