Thursday Birthday Thoughts

It's Thursday, November 8. It's my birthday! In honor of my birthday I have decided to skip the usual Thursday Thoughts post and simply post this photo of me here. This was taken outside my grandparents' cottage and I think I was about two and a half years old. Look at my crazy hair! My mom says when I was little it was naturally curly. Now I only get curls like that on the ends and only if I have the patience to let my hair air dry. I never do. It takes way too long. 

My grandparents sold the cottage many years ago, but I have lots of memories of summers spent there, sleeping on a cot, grilling in the rain, toasting hot dogs and marshmallows over a fire, wading in the creek, rowing the boat up & down the creek, playing jarts (lawn darts, back before they were banned/made safer with blunt tips), trips up to Lake Erie, riding in the back of the pickup truck to get Dairy Queen (before that became illegal). I miss my grandparents and I miss those summers.
