Last weekend I went to the northwoods of Wisconsin to my parent’s cabin for the weekend, and my older sister and her husband even made it up there too (and their dogs!). It was wonderful, relaxing, and just what I needed. We went for a few walks in the forest and frozen lakes, played with the dogs, broke through the ice with my foot…Yes! You heard correctly; I was trying to snap a photo while walking along the edge of the lake and it didn’t work out so well for me. It was a little bit of a cold shock at first, but nothing a little hot cocoa and a warm campfire couldn’t fix. I learned my lesson, so all in all it was a very nice weekend away from the city.
On another note, my parents are probably the cutest couple I will ever meet because after 35 years of marriage, they still can laugh and be silly together. If I ever get married, I would be blessed to share with someone else the same amount of love, kindness, and respect that they have for each other. So Mom and Dad, you guys are pretty cool…just sayin’.
