[ I'm back! ]

THAT was a rather long break, wasn't it? I hadn't really planned to be away from here for so long, but I have to admit that it was a wonderful, relaxing break!

We had a great time seeing everyone back in our hometown and then spending a couple of weeks soaking up the fresh air at the cottage we rented in Muskoka. As soon as we walked in, this is what we saw...


Now if that doesn't just start the vacation off right, I don't know what does! What a lovely view from such a cute cottage. Perched halfway down a granite hill, it was the perfect spot to unwind...


I love the mix of casual cottage and mismatched furniture...


We rented a boat so we could explore the lake and see the sights from the water...


And enjoyed pretty sunsets out on the deck every night...


Don't you feel relaxed just looking at these? Believe me, it was very difficult to leave!

But we all have to return to real life sometime and so as I sort through our loads of laundry back in Dubai, I'm going through my pics so I can share some of what we saw. Stay tuned!

That had to be very hard to leave! What a beautiful view, and tranquil feel. I'm glad your back - I've missed you! Not that I've been a very good Summer blogger myself :)

Glad you're back!
