Sometimes you need to get away to enjoy pause. Somewhere with no tv, no internet, no phones. A place of quiet where you can sit and take in the world. And maybe do a little reading here and there too. That’s what I’m craving these days.

Atlas’s Cottage

We all feel like we’ve got the weight of the world on our shoulder’s sometimes. That’s just when we need to pause, reflect and renew. A little meditation. A bubble bath. Usually a little breather is enough to keep us going for the next 24 hours. But you should never underestimate the power of a real vacation. A whole week of you time.

I’m getting mine this July. My family has rented a cottage (which looks more like a home) in Quebec. It’s a quiet, lake side cottage (no motor boats allowed). I’m looking forward to getting some good reading in, hiking the trails, going for a refreshing swim in the early morning, painting my toes bright pink and playing a little solitaire.

Naturally this cottage getaway has sent me spiraling into a world of quaint, cozy, quiet cottages. I imagine this would be Atlas’s room, if gods cottaged.
