A little piece of heaven

 This past week we went up to my favorite place in the world. A little town called Willsboro. It is located in the Adirondacks and is simply a little piece of heaven on earth! My family has a camp up there and it has been in our family for decades.

 My grandfather was borned and raised in Willsboro  and it's where him and my grandmother met and fell in love. Our family has been heading up north to Willsboro ever since then!  We have many good memories of being up north.

 Soon as you get off the highway and make a right turn it's as if you are going back in time. Nothing seems to change. There are still miles and miles of  fields, barns, cows and mountians. Life seems to move at a slower pace. People are kinder and life is filled with what is really important. Family, friends and living life!

My dream has always been to live somewhere by a lake, surrounded by mountains and fresh air,  but I never knew excactly where my dream place was.  Don't know why it took me so long to discover it but while we were heading back home it hit me! Willsboro, New York is where my dream place is!  That is where I belong. That is the place I want to build my dream life!

Now of course that doesn't mean I'll be packing my bags and heading up there tonight, as much as I'd like too, it's just not quiet my time yet. But I am excited to think that one day I will have my lovely little cabin in the mountians, by the lake in sweet sweet Willsboro!

Below are a few pictures I took while we were up north. The pictures don't even come close to showing the beauty of the mountains! It was a perfect summer day!

So pretty!! I am a native New Yorker (will be moving back to my grandmother's homestead in NY soon!) and love the little towns upstate. Many people don't realize how beautiful it is there..... when we lived in Mich. for a short period of time, some of my friends thought all of NY was like NYC!! They never realized how many beautiful lakes, villages, farms and mountains NY has.... Your camp looks amazing -- what a wonderful place to plan to move to one day.....
