A Little Break and a New Journal and Page

A time of breaks and a new beginning!

On Wednesday through Thursday of this past week, Michael and I took a little road trip to Canandaigua Lake, one of New York's Finger Lakes. Not too long of a drive, and a beautiful stay. My mother-in-law gave this overnight stay at the Chalet to us for Christmas last year, and we'd planned to get away after our daughter's wedding, so...

 This is one of the gathering places.

 The porch, where we had breakfast:


We took an hour-and-a-half boat ride/wine tasting, too! Very relaxing and I got to see how I'd feel on a boat...I did well.  There was an acoustic guitarist playing and singing on this ride, too. Very nice!



The day we got home, I began this new handmade journal from aboutludid.etsy.
Here is the front:

Here is the back:
 The pages are 6" X 9".

Thanks for looking! Enjoy your day!

your little vacation looks amazing. I jotted down the location, my husband and I are always looking for some "cooler" spots to get away to.
journals pages are fabulous as well. Like Terri said above, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so I can take a look at your pictures!
Thanks!

Awesome that you had a getaway vacation! You deserved it! Looks like a fantastic time too. Love the log cabin look of the lodge. You look so cute in pic of you and your sweetie on the boat!
Neat journal beginnings! I had been thinking of trying to sew together a fabric journal... but a lot of things don't make it past the thought pattern with me!
Have a great week! XO, Cat

It is such a blessing to be able to take a break and step outside real life for a day or two, to regroup and refresh our spirits. This looks such a wonderfully cosy place to stay and you both look very relaxed and happy.

What a beautiful journal. Enjoy every page.
