This past week was our last week at the cottage for the summer. It was an amazing time with family and friends and we left with sad hearts. Driving up the cottage road with my parents left waving in the rear view mirror is our good-bye to summer. I do often wonder however if after our first bend in the road they start their happy dance and then streak off the dock. I truly would not put it past them.
This week had us swimming with bubbles, racing dinghies, taking tippy canoe rides, noodle wars and even making weapons, again. Grumpy had the kids making their very own bows and then shooting arrows at their homemade target stuffed with leaves. A true northern adventure week.
With all this fun left four hours behind us I did still enjoy the feeling of walking in our front door. Is our home perfect, no way. Is it something out of a designer magazine, nope. But it is our home. It is on its way to being a reflection of us. It is not all about the latest fad or trend, it is the colours and styles that make the Hoyte family happy. To be honest, a good deal of those colours are what surround us at the cottage. Now if only I could hear the lapping of the water on the dock when I sit on the chaise in the office.
That being said… It is great to be home…
