So quiet with the kids gone, but gently holding the memories of our time together this last weekend. Throwing rocks on the beach, walks in the woods, seeing eagles and starfish, building gingerbread houses, playing board games, sharing homemade soup, laughing, loving, snuggling - parts of sharing our island retreat and creating special island memories for all of us.
The only time I'm not totally happy here on the island? When I have to start thinking about straightening, cleaning, and packing up to return to the mainland. I look forward to the day when I won't have to leave - ever.
