Mt. Hope Chronicles this week, Heidi's Living Lovely topic is out-of-the-box vacations. My favorite vacation spot is our cottage in the 1000 islands. When I was 3, my parents rented a cottage for a week. For the next few years they continued renting the same cottage. When I was a teenager they had the opportunity to purchase it. It held such wonderful memories, my parents bought it. I was engaged in that cottage, announced I was going to be a mom, my brother was married there, and so many memories i wouldn't know where to start. My parents don't live in the same house i grew up in, so our cottage grounds us and is our "home".
Carter's birthday is on Sunday and I guess I am feeling a little nostalgic. I was going through old pictures and I just can't believe how he's changed. When you bring your little bundle home from the hospital you have no idea how it will change your life. Carter has taught me so much about myself and about life.
This is my favorite picture being pregnant for Carter. It was just before my shower that Netty, my sister in law, had for me.
My brother took this picture when Carter was about 4 days old.
My brother took this one too. I just love his eyes! Matt really captures a moment.
This is where i will share our everyday lives with our family and friends. I am a child of God, wife of an IT guy, and mom to my two boys. I love to read when i have time, taking photos, and spending time with friends. We school our kids at home, but school is usually wherever we happen to be that day. My Real Joy is knowing Jesus as my savior.
