Today I can't stop thinking about how I wish my children could have a summer home of sorts that we could spend all day and night lounging and relaxing at. This and this summer home I would love for it to be on a sandy waterfront so that my kids can continue to do what they absolutely love to do: play in the sand and get wet. I want somewhere that I am confident taking the kids alone while DH works and everyone is safe and comfortable. I want somewhere I don't have to pack up every weekend and that we can entertain family and friends who visit.
I don't know why this thought just won't leave my head or why all of a sudden I am aching for such reality, but I am trying to figure out how I can fix it. It is not that we cannot afford a summer home, but more that we are so busy that beyond the summer months we would be pressed to make good use of it. DH is admittedly not a handyman, so he's not into tending to landscaping and projects more than he has too.
This weekend we are going to visit a cottage/second home of a former coworker of DH, so it will either calm this nagging thought or make it even worse! In the meantime, the kids and I have retreated to our backyard where we will continue to make amazing memories of Summer 2016.
Sunshine & happiness today and for always!
