The Little Cottage

Long weekends mean packing up the car and heading off to the cottage after a long winters rest. We make the year trip each year telling our friends and family that we are going to the cottage to rest and relax. Yet we know we are going to clean up the long winters dust, open the windows, and set up the cottage for the season until it comes time to close it up again for the long winters rest. We spend our long weekend cleaning up the yard, replanting flowers, and airing out the cabin. We are find ourselves just as busy as the work week, yet this is more rewarding in the end.

The Entrance Way

The entrance way of the home is the first thing our guests see. My grandma use to say that you can tell a lot about the people who live in a home by their entrance way; something I never really gave much thought to as a children. Now that I think back to my grandma and the things she would say, I can now see how the entrance way opens the world to those who live within the home. Some entrance ways are clean with everything in their place and others are a mess with items strewn here and there. My favourite entrance ways are those with clear signs of animals and children. You know this home is filled with love and they are not afraid to show it.

Just a Little Love

No matter where we are, who we are with, or how old we may be, we all need just a little love. We do not care where it comes from or what shape it takes, just as long as someone around us show a little love. It lifts our spirits on the darkest of days and allows for a crack of light to shine through. Often that little glimpse of love is all that is needed to get us through the day; regardless if it is what starts the day off or the goal at the end of a long day. It could be from someone unexpected or the ones we hold most dear. Just a little love goes a long way.

The Country Wedding

Nestled outside the ancient building the bride stood watch as the decorators busied themselves with decorating and setup the location. Taking a long slow breath she began to smile as her vision came to life. Most would be bothered by the occasional verbalization from the sleeping dog or from by the gathering chicks as the grass was rustled causing the little seeds to fall to the ground. She enjoyed the country side; she found it soothing and relaxing and the animals that roamed the land made her smile. Eventually she felt someone take her hand and she gave it a squeeze and flashed her fiance a smile, tomorrow they would be married and a new journey would begin.
