Home. Heaven.

Hi. Remember me? I am the gal who used to blog and comment and well...go on a computer.

But it is summer and I have three bratty children at home who refuse to get along...and sit down for more than 2 minutes.

And we went away.

To Heaven.

Aka my grandparents lakefront property.

Heaven.

My family has rented out my Great Grandma's (RIP) little house on the hill for the summer.  The house that I used to visit when I was little.
I would take my brother and young cousins over to see my 90+ year old Great Grandmother in this little house. 
She would feed us cookies.
We would chit chat.  And then we would head back to my Grandma and Grandpa's house...approximately 33 feet away.


This house still has my Great Grandmother's smell. A nice....old(er) person smell if you know what I mean.


Now I sleep in her bedroom.

And my children sleep in her living room.

When we wake up and have breakfast in my Great Grandma's kitchen, we put on our swimsuits and head across the road to this place.
I love summer.

How wonderful to be able to share this with your children now ... a little piece of heaven here on earth.

And I'm right with you on the whole difficult to blog in the summer because of pesky kids thing.

Sounds idyllic! I'm having a hard time blogging much now that summer is here and it won't get any better once I get to my slice of heaven in Maine this August.

What a wonderful tradition to take the same vacations with your children that you took as a child. I love that!
