Cottage Life: Week 1

Cottage Life: Week 1

We arrived at the cottage a week ago and have been living and loving it up. Days spent in our bathing suits followed by evenings cozied up in our jammies, playing card games and checkers and doing puzzles. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to our summer vacation. The days are long and for each one that passes, I am so grateful that my kids are experiencing the same fun I did here as a child. When they splash and play in the lake together, giggling and racing and jumping off the dock over and over again, I think back to those same moments my own brother and I had right here. Many happy smiles and memories return. So fun!!

Today at Simple Mom, you can find a post from me Have Yourself an Inspired Little Summer. Here’s hoping you’re doing just that. Happy summer!

  2. What a wonderful tradition. :) we’re looking forward to joining some friends at their Wisconsin cabin on a lake sometime soon this summer.

  3. Oh, how I wish we had a cottage. Every year your posts and pictures are so lovely!!!

  4. I was just telling a dear friend that I needed a lake retreat. Enjoy yourself.

  5. Enjoy every second of it. My family cottage where my sister and I spent the summers of our childhood is currently surrounded by a dike and going to flood in the next few weeks. My sister and I are both devestated that we aren’t going to be able to spend time up there allowing our children to enjoy the blessing that we got to enjoy. Now to find something to turn this summer around!!

  6. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. There is something special about spending summers on a lake with your family. I know we enjoy time spent with family and friends at our cottage.

  7. It’s lovely to see that you are making such wonderful memories together as a family. I’m sure that your children will always remember these times and treasure them.
