Cottage Cheer

Last year when my father was sick and I was sad, a good friend invited me to her summer home in Green Lake, Wisconsin for a little get away.  And it worked!  I laughed with good friends, drank wine and we all told stories about the good old days when we were 20 years younger. Thank you, Jo Ellen!

One of my favorite rooms in that gorgeous house was the 'Cottage Suite'.

Twin spool beds...

Your own pink teddy bear...

And the perfect nightstand out of colorful luggage to hold a lamp with a rose print shade for reading that can't put down book.

The two mornings I spent in that sweet room were glorious.

And the nights were heavenly.

I miss my father and would give anything to have him back.

But my good friends are keeping me company through my grief and can make me laugh even through my tears. Cindy, Jill, Juliette and all the SJA Soul Sisters, you are AWESOME! And Laney, what would I do without you! Someday we will meet!
