Bill and Kathleen

There’s just something about being in the middle of nowhere that is so relaxing

So healing, refreshing, & rejuvenating

Being unplugged completely

With no cell service, no tv, no “extra” noises

We woke to the sound of birds chirping and doves cooing

Drank coffee slowly and lots of it

Searched for the elusive groups of turkeys that were gobbling loudly in the woods

Evaluated tracks left in the mud and feathers abandoned


And besides the sounds of animals and our feet hitting fallen leaves as we walked,

It was silent…such a beautiful silence.

It’s my husband’s parent’s retreat–their home away from home,

Their “happy place”

And I’m becoming more and more aware of the power in photos,

In the stories being documented, being preserved

So I wanted to show what a day at the cabin is like

But really, to show what my children’s grandparents are like

In a place that they’re happy,

In a place they get to reconnect because they get to disconnect from the rest

And I look forward to our kids and their cousins getting to look back at these photos,

Photos that are still wonderful to have now, but will hold even more value down the road

To them as a gift, for their future generations…
