Happy Thanksgiving

For the first time, we spent our Thanksgiving long weekend up at the cottage.

The weather was perfect - sunny, and still fairly cool. And the leaves had started changing, and continued to be more vibrant as the week went on.

We spent all day walking the shoreline, lying in the hammocks, reading in the sun room - just enjoying time as a family. My mother in law cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner for us. I made pumpkin and apple pie, which was enjoyed with coffee, every day following.

One of my many, many things to be thankful for are these times when we get away. The cottage is our home away from home. We slow down. We talk. We giggle. We make memories together, forgetting the world beyond the trees and lake. For a few days it's just us. 

I hope your Thanksgiving was just as wonderful.
