It begins! Work is officially over. The sabbatical has officially begun. And to celebrate, we're packing up and heading out to cottage country for a few days of rest, relaxation, fishing, eating, and reading! It's going to be heavenly.
So that you can celebrate along with me, I'm dedicating today's Inspiration Gallery to all things cottage. I can hear the loons calling already ... !

Mostly it's just a great excuse to slow down and focus on the important things in life, spending time with family and friends, which I will be doing plenty of (nothing but!) this weekend. Regardless of what type of plans you have for the weekend, I hope you make the most of them and enjoy every minute of it. See you on Tuesday!
