This weekend we were able to sneak away from the all the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving for an overnighter at the in-law’s cottage. It was lovely. The weather was just beautiful and I had such a relaxing time. It’s hard to come home and get back into the swing-of-things once you’ve finally calmed yourself down by sitting around drinking cider and chatting. But it’s well worth it. There’s something about the simplicity and slower pace of cottage life that gets me every time. I just don’t want to leave; the cozy couches, the clean air, the water, the fishing, it’s all so good for the soul.
I hope you all had a great long weekend eating lot’s of turkey and getting your fill of pumpkin pie. I’m off to finish making some Chili Con Carne Soup!
