I cannot believe that Summer is almost over. Don’t get me wrong, with the almost unbearable heat and humidity this year I will not be sad to see the end of it.
I am however a little down that my schedule this year did not allow me to go “home” to the Midwest. I love it there in the summer. For a long time our family had a beautiful cabin which my parents designed and built. The cabin was on a cliff, overlooking a lake who’s walls were carved by glaciers.
We loved going there in the summer to swim, go boating, fishing and to visit the little nearby towns.
Or to sit on the wrap around porch and have barbeque’s and watch the fireflies and the stars.
Then in the winter we would go and ski or just drive up for the weekend and never leave the house.

We parked ourselves, in our jammies, in front of the two story field stone fireplace with books, cocoa and snacks and spent a perfect weekend.
After all is there anything better than a good book and good company?
At the end of a wonderful day, we would climb the stairs to the loft where we would snuggle under our warm blankets and watch the glow of the last ember below.
I have been thinking of those times a lot this summer, perhaps it is the weather, or just nostalgia, who knows. Whatever it is I do know that I would love to be there for a week taking in the great outdoors and spending time with family and friends. Oh well, maybe next year.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Enjoy!
