Retreat

Every summer growing up my family and I spent our summer holidays up north.

My grandparents had a trailer in Haliburton Ontario and it was beautiful.

The granite shoreline and cedar landscape sing to me even today…

Some memories live inside you forever.

When my mother in law requested to spend her milestone birthday at a cottage in Haliburton I knew I would love it.

Last weekend we braved the slippery roads and made our way up north.

It was beautiful.

My husband, brother-in-law, and I went for a walk Saturday afternoon.

We headed out on the frozen lake to soak up the sun and enjoy the scenery.

Confession: ย Until this past weekend I had never walked on a frozen lake before!

Strange for a Canadian, eh?

The weekend was great.

Our first trip away with Arjen.

Two grandparents, 3 siblings, 3 in laws, 3 babes under 9 months.

No shortage of love.
