Several months ago my mom suggested that we book a lakeside cabin as a mini-retreat for my birthday this year, so we did. We spent four days this week at this cabin, and it was so relaxing! I couldn't do a lot, because of my foot, but we still managed to take a ton of photos and have a good time. Mom planned all the meals ahead of time, and even surprised me with strawberry shortcake on my actual birthday. I got caught up on some reading, did some sketching, and spent some quality time enjoying my mom's company. All in all, a great birthday week!
