I spent this past weekend with the best group of friends a girl could ask for. We’re lucky enough to have access to a beautiful cottage near Haliburton and have been going up for a girls weekend for the past 3 summers. Contrary to never getting super lucky with the weather we have always enjoyed ourselves, a testament to the company we keep, but this year was by far the most fun we’ve had! We managed to fit all of the cottage necessities: campfires, swimming, kayaking, lounging on the dock, dance parties, eating…A LOT, and of course sipping on a few beverages, into one weekend.
Returning home and heading back to work after this kind of weekend is always hard, and for some reason we all got a little more sentimental this year; the takeaway message: we all feel super lucky to have a group of friends like this one, and we wouldn’t trade this weekend for anything. (Except for maybe a week long getaway!)
