Few days away ...





The cottage has been owned by my hubby's grandparents for decades. This sign at the end of the driveway has always signified to me ...
"The stress of life ends here ... prepare to relax!"




Beautiful setting. Sisters relaxing by the lake!


Just the 4 of us
3 days
8 movies
lots of board games
no schedule at all
long walks ... in the rain AND the heat
simple meals
fishing off the dock
ice cream from the corner store
reading great books for however long we wanted
water lapping at the dock
woodstove crackling in the morning
breeze blowing in all the open windows
DEEP BREATHS ... STRESS RELIEVED!

Sounds wonderful! It's so good to get away and focus on each other, as a family and to be able to completely relax. It's important to get rejuvenated now and then.

So glad you had this opportunity.
