If you know me, you know my very most favorite place on earth is the lake. Seneca Lake, that is. It pretty much embodies the definition of comfort in my book. I grew up in Glenora on Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of upstate NY over the summers and holidays and many times in-between. I’ve even lived there a few times year round as well and have some of the happiest memories of my life there with my parents and brother and every other family member on my Papa’s side. Brother and I have a lovely cottage there now that was once my Great Grandmother Mamie’s. Family is the most important thing to me and Glenora is my home, my family, my comfort. There is no other place in the world that makes me feel as comfortable and safe as Glenora.
My family has lived here for generations in the same cove, it’s pretty magical and incredible. Makes my heart skip a beat just thinking about it. Where many family members have married, including myself and the hubs under the most amazing Japanese Maple I’ve ever seen. My Great-Great Grand Pappy gave it to my Great-Great Nana when it was just a seedling and now it takes up 1/3 of my once Great Aunt Polly’s yard, now cousin Nancy’s. I was even married in my great-great aunt’s wedding gown that was also worn by my amazing grandmother and lovely cousin. I’m kind of obsessed with my family history if you can’t tell. <3
Here I am wearing my wedding flats on the boathouse roof, where I’ve spent my childhood and adult life jumping off with screaming delight. And no, I don’t jump onto the dock. That’d be totally unsafe. Duh.
“But Piglet is so small that he slips into a pocket, where it is very comfortable to feel him when you are not quite sure whether twice seven is twelve or twenty-two.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
What else means comfort to me? It’s a who. That who is Brother’s son, the nephs, the most fan-freaking-tastic tiny human I know.
