Is now ours.  
I look forward to ice out and the return of the loons.  Until then, the house will sit encased and surrounded by snow. 

We are so blown away and this all seems unreal, it's something we've dreamed of, but were never sure we'd have.  


  1. I am so very happy for you Angela, a dream come true for sure. It is absolutely beautiful! I know the feeling, as you know, and am still pinching myself in spite of Sandy. ;)

  2. What a view! This is gonna be a great place to stitch!

  3. I can't wait to come visit!!

  4. I am so happy for you !!! (can you tell me where your lake is?) We have a small summer cabin in Minnesota - on one of the 10,000 lakes LOL. We have a dream of builing a new house and live there for a few years....before we get too old. I am meeting with a designer/builder tomorrow - the meeting may be a bit premature, but ....you have to have your dreams. I wish you a wonderful summer of lake sewing !!


Some day, I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
