Where I will be...

This is where my husband spent his summers growing up. Where he and his family find peace and solitude amongst their busy lives. The cabin built by his parents,little by little through the years by their own hands. The view that is only part of the experience, mixed with the sounds of birds and crickets. Of the waves gently lapping the rocky shore while the breeze brings a brisk and welcome chill. Where the busy hum of technology and commitments are left on the mainland, scarcely remembered. Where the wave of a neighbor is welcomed with delight, because you know they feel the same about the place as you. Where every sunset makes you swear you have never seen anything more beautiful, until the next one. This is the place that makes every unbearable moment in life bearable, because you know you can return. This is Cow Island. See you all on Tuesday.

Hi Stacy,

I've been woefully behind on my email and commenting, so I wanted to pop in and say that I've been reading along on all your wonderful adventures and heartfelt posts - I am so glad that your trip home ended up being so meaningful and healing, and as for your piecework - WOW!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh My Gosh Where is cow island? It is so beautiful! I am so so jealous. It looks simply wonderful. There really is no place in Utah you could have a cabin like that at all. Growing up in the east there are tons of places you could do that but not here! I miss that. Oh wow. What a fabulous wonderful place.
