Nothing much planned for my summer---dh is still not working because of breaking his kneecap---hoping he will go back to work at the end of June---but no extra money to do anything because of that.

Hi there Spark Sis...thanks for sharing your pics here. It was so nice to get a little flavor of what your trip was like. It looked so laid back and relaxing. The cottage looked really cool too! When you get a chance I'd love to hear about what you considered your favorite part of the trip. Have a good work week my friend!
