24/52 – 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.

23/52 – 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 – Happy birthday to our smart, handsome, funny, athlete, big brother and first born.  I can’t believe 12 years have passed since you made me a mama for the first time.  I’m so proud of everything you are and do.  Can’t wait to see what the next 12 years brings for you.  Love you more!
