It is so hard coming back into the city and to the office after being away, even if it was just for the weekend.

We spent some time at my grandparents house in Napanee.  The old house has finally been sold and we’re in the last days of packing up, it’s very sad, but we can’t hold onto it forever.


We also spent some time up at the cottage celebrating my brother’s (belated) birthday, my mom’s birthday and Father’s Day!  Carlo made us lemon curd and angel food cake and we still have some leftovers.  We also played a few good games courtesy of my brother-in-law.  It was such a busy and lovely weekend, that I didn’t take any photos!  Here’s a shot from a few weeks ago.

Getting out of the city

We`re headed to one of my favourite places this weekend, the family cottage!  Carlo and I each took a long weekend to go up and enjoy my mom`s birthday and Father`s Day with the whole family.

I feel so fortunate to have an escape location just a few hours away.  It feels so Canadian to have a cottage in the woods on a lake.  I can`t wait to get there, maybe I`ll even go swimming, if it`s not to cold.
