It was my birthday a few weeks back and I always try to celebrate with my mom. I wouldn't be here (in so many ways) without her. We went to the family cabin, sat in the sun, had lunch and chatted most of the afternoon. It was my last day of summer and I'll look back on this day fondly. So here are our feet on the dock roasty from the sunshine. I hold tight to the summer days at the cabin, they help me get through the winter.
