When my sister & I were younger

our parents took us to a cottage on the lake for a two-week vacation every summer.

It felt like we went for 110 years, in kids-speak.

But then we both grew up….

So, this year my sister & I surprised our mother

and the 3 of us will be sharing a cottage together

for the first time in like 110 years!!

(Really just a long time in adult-speak.)


I am sure my sister & I will do many of the things we did all those many years ago.

  1. My family (well, grandparents) have a cottage to that I loved going to. We used to go every year but 5 years ago my parents decided my brother and I need to see more of the world and instead each summer we went somewhere else (Italy, Florida, Vancouver…) which was nice but every year I told them I wanted to go back to the cottage.
    Last year I told my parents that I REALLY wanted to go back (I may have cried a little) so my dad finally took me back, and it was a lot of fun, but things had changed. For one, my mom and brother didn’t come. Two, my grandmother was dead (rest her soul) and three, my grandfather was older and not as active/healthy. I always thought I’d be one day taking kids of my own there but I don’t know if that’s a possibility anymore. The cottage is staying in the family (my aunts now own it) but I’m a long way from having my own family so who knows what it’ll be like 10 years from now.
    Anyways, sorry for this long comment, I hope you and your family have a great time on your trip. Memories and reminiscing is fun!

  2. I really enjoy your writing. You make me feel as if I’m part of the family. You bring the reader into your stories making all of us feel like we are part of the experience. That is a talent few possess.
