I am back from our long weekend (almost a week!) away. And there was a flurry of activity, picking up kids, making dinner and swooping the house back into shape. Plus all the unpacking I’m not going to think about....

In a cabin in Northern Minnesota, 12 of our friends are still there, fishing, reading, eating, talking: relaxing. But, we came home a little earlier, to see our beautiful kiddos. O I missed them.

Last night, well this morning, but who can tell. What is 3:30 a.m. considered anyway? Isabel said, “I missed you when you were gone.” It sounded so sleepy, lonely, content and who knows. We three were snuggled in the big bed, and I hear her sleepy raspy voice, “Mimi? I like this when we’re all together.”

Me too.

Good for you to have special retreat time for your own :)
I also feel the same like Isabel at this moment. This month is really a great family month for us since my hubby's coming home from Holland for a month. Being together with the family is really special blessing..
