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.

Where Love Overflows

Wanting a quiet place to call her own the little girl went to work carefully dragging her favourite items from within their home in hopes that her mom would not catch her. The carefully selected couch cushions, throw rug, and the blanket from her parents bed were the first items to disappear. The throw pillows and small table where she planned on putting her favourite book to read were next. Silently she came and went without much notice as she pieced together her little spot by the waterfall. Stopping to get a snack, she smiled at her mom as she ate the cookies on the plate. She watched as her mom disappeared from the kitchen and came back after a short while. Not much was exchanged between the pair as she trotted off to finish her project. She dragged her favourite book outside to read while she surrounded herself with the sounds of the waterfall and nature, only to find some new toys surrounding her little spot of quiet. She smiled as her little heart filled with her mothers love.

Lovely Day for a Celebration

lovely-day-for-a-celebration1

The date had been set for early fall with hopes of warm weather and perfect colours. The bride and groom grew anxious for their big day when they would finally be husband and wife. Days past and the weather grew drastically colder and the bride began to worry about the venue they had picked after seeing several others. It was perfectly stunning and she wanted to dazzle their guests. The days faded away as the event lurked around the corner and rain was in the forecast. The pair decided to continue as planned hopeful that the weather would play in their favour. Much to their delight, mother nature was in a humble mood and set the stage perfectly with delightful hues of yellow and warm sunshine fit for a fall wedding outdoors.
