a sad farewell

12 Aug

Windermere, British Columbia has always been, and always will be, my second home. No matter where I wander, the family cabin always welcomes me back with chirping birds, a comfortable bed and a screened porch to ponder and relax in. This is the first time in four years that I haven’t spent my entire summer here, so that may explain why these past five weeks have flown by so fast. I worked on plenty of art/career opportunities including exhibitions, expos, studio days and teaching workshops, spent some wonderful times with friends and family making memories that will last a lifetime, and soaked up all the gorgeous scenery, incredible lake views and breath-taking animal sightings that I could. I’m ready to go home to my studio and John but of course I’m also sad to leave… However, it always somehow makes it easier when I remind myself that it’s never really “goodbye,” it’s always “see you later.”

    The valley has me by the heartstrings as well. I hope to find a way to return home someday and catch up with you!

    There is nothing like a screened in patio & a home filled with memories-but it is always good to go to the home you’re building, bolstered by the love of your family :) The photographs of your places are so beautiful, I’m wishing I could go explore your little corner of the world!
