Okay I am warning you if you don't want to see the family vacation turn back now .... I have just returned from 2 glorious weeks with my family in Priest Lake, Idaho. And all I can say is that it was the best trip we have ever had together. There is something about the simpleness of a cabin in the woods by the lake and the beautiful surroundings that opens the heart. Our days were filled with wildlife, boating, hikes, huckleberry picking, bbq, s'mores, family time, games, reading (no tv folks ;) ) I read 3 books! and a lot of laughter. I must say it was a hard transition back to reality and I am missing the fresh air and chittering of the chipmunk ( a resident one that my son named "THe Chipster". Memories to be savored through pictures and thoughts and feelings. My boys both remarked to each other (not thinking the parents were hearing of course!) that they would never forget this trip. I clearing second that motion! Much more to come in the days ahead - my life has been a whirlwind since getting back. That being said here is my disclaimer .... zines, swaps, and journals will be forthcoming please grant me patience.
