More than a Cabin

Dear Gary, Laura, and Sophie,

Thank you. For biscuits, and butter, and local honey. For preserves. And especially, thank you for that fruit salad. Oh my. I do wish we had some of your fruit salad right now.

I am missing the three of you, and laughing together around the campfire.

Everyone! Calm down!

I am missing all of that green on green, on green. And those rigorous hikes.

The blueprints you showed me, four years ago, looked very good, but what you have actually built is even better. Labor and lumber went a long way, but your generous and kind hearts are what have made your home truly special... time in your company, in your home, has left a lasting mark on my heart.

Thank you.
