For years my family has gone to cottages as our summer vacation.
The last time we went was 9 years ago.
My brothers and I decided to
beg ask our parents if we could do it again.
Restart the tradition now that we have families to share.
They jumped on it.
So my parents secured two cottages for 11 people and one fetus (not me, people).
We all arrived on Saturday.
Cort had to leave Sunday night, but the boys and I stayed until Tuesday evening.
It was exhausting.
And so many words filled my head and sprang from my fingers into journals for later.
It was wonderful.
Here is a glimpse of what I hope will become an annual trip…
Next year we hope to stay the whole week.
With Cortney there the whole time too.
Because despite the heat, humidity, dirt, and lack of TV and internet, it was EXACTLY what we needed.
Thanks, mom and dad, for making this happen.
The cottage is Sluiter Approved!
If you missed it yesterday, I am helping my friend Mark get his story out there. It’s important to me because it’s HUGE to him.
