    It's now officially summer? How did I miss that? Maybe because I've been calling it that for the last few months. 🙊 Oh well, happy 5th-ish day of summer, all. 🌸 A typical afternoon for my gal.

hello wilderness vacation.

every summer when i was younger, my family and i would vacation at jan lake lodge. i always looked forward to making that long trip into northern saskatchewan, because even though it would always rain and there was always some fight between my siblings and i, being there felt like we had just found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. it was an isolated little piece of heaven.

as we grew older, we eventually stopped to j.l.l. for years, i did not even give the spot a second thought when it would come to mind. then suddenly, over 10 years later and now married, i found myself wondering what it would be like to go back there for a few days. this time, i would have my own family to take with me, and i would have new memories of the lake with them. so husband and dogs in tow, i once again made the long trip northward.

when we did reach our destination, i realized that while people grow and change, some places will always stay the same. what a bittersweet feeling it was to be back there.

this is our video of that week at jan lake lodge. i hope that you enjoy it.
