This is part of the somewhat messy (our fault) cottage I shared with two other ladies. Each cottage is self-contained with compact kitchen facilities, so we could actually come back in the evening and enjoy something we'd left cooking in the crockpot. That's a lifesaver when you're busy all day and tired at night. :)
And the best part of any trip for me - coming back home! My little family had made me a welcome home banner. Isn't that sweet!
