At the cottage with my grandparents was one of my favorite places to be. We always went on boat rides in the evenings, during cocktail hour before dinner, and spent the days prior soaking up the sun or swimming after yard work. I miss being so close to the cottage, I miss Phil, I miss their old dog Abbey. Things have changed so much, but I will never forget the good times that are frozen in time with these photos from August of 2009. Forever my favorite place, with some of my favorite people.
