It was a divine weekend! I can honestly say- I debated for a long time how to spend my 30th birthday- with my family? with my hubby? solo? on an island? with my sisters only? at a spa?....in the end I opted for the island with sisters and friends and it was perfect! It was almost a recreation of my bachlorette weekend- which I look back on fondly (minus 2 other special ladies). We had so much fun.
This cottage is pure peace to me- it's simple, not cluttered, clean, private, and quiet.
(contact me if you are interested in renting it- this is the same place form my very first post- D and I took the kids there this past May- equally as lovely for a family vacation)
Here's the view from the yard...
A little walk down one of the many winding dirt roads on the island brings you to this amazingly quiet beach.
To me, this view is total perfection- some day I WILL wake up to a view like this every day!
And then- we ate....
Emily is a master cake-maker- if you ever need a fabulously delicious cake- I will send you her way! I told her she should start a side business. I can't even describe it's deliciousness- seriously. We ate cake all day, and night for three days straight!
Ohhhh- and we had a daytime campfire! (we were too scared to do it at night:) It is a very remote island- so the fear factor definitely increases when darkness falls.
It was chilly- so I had to put my s'more near the fire to melt it properly:)
There was a whole lot of laughing and silly business. I havn't laughed this hard in a long time.
