O, lucky, lucky me.
All three offspring, Mr. B, Cora, Charlotte, and I are heading to Lutsen, Minnesota, and her nearby neighbor, Grand Marais, in just 8 hours for our annual 5-day family getaway.
We'll be picking wild raspberries, hiking (well not me this year) stargazing, hoping against hope to see the Northern Lights, roasting marshmallows, playing Scrabble, reading, playing cards, watching night settle in, picking up stones, and gorging ourselves on Lake Superior herring, walleye, fudge, pies, and the world's best doughnuts.
The air is intoxicating there, full of pungent pines and cool lake breezes.
It's a time for rest, reconnecting, and remembering this:
"It takes solitude, under the stars,
for us to be reminded
of our eternal origin
and our far destiny."
~ Archibald Rutledge
Till Sunday, blessings . . .
