I love this picture of my niece and brother-in-law. It reminds me to be present in the moment and appreciate the beauty of life. It also reminds me of how much I love these two.
This picture was taken on the boat in front of the family cottage. My great grandparents bought the land. My niece and nephew are the 4th generation in my family to spend time there. One of the reasons I love this picture so much is that my sister’s babies are able to experience this magical place. Knowing that my grandmother and my father both grew up spending their weekends there as my sister and I did is really amazing to me. My mother refers to the cottage as “our sanctuary” and she is so correct. To me this picture shows perfectly the serenity that is felt there.
