If you had told me six months ago when I booked this trip how badly I would need it, I wouldn’t have believed you. I wouldn’t have believed you even a month ago. But in whatever way the universe knows, it had me schedule it six months ago and when it came time to go, I was ready. I needed it. We both did.
Canoe Bay is a balm to my soul whenever we go, but this trip may have been my favorite. We kayaked (saw a beaver and innumerable sunning turtles), ate amazing food (the amount of time we spent talking about the creamed spinach is unbelievable but it was that good), and sat on our porch overlooking the lake and the moon and just…were.
Now we are home and settling back into the routine of parents and partners in the business of living, but with renewed energy and purpose in this life we are building.
I am so grateful for these times away.
