So Now it is Official....We Are Here!

It has been several months since I have been on here to post anything. The summer is a busy time so updates have been few and far between.
The other day though marked a special day for us that I thought we had to share on here. 

The addition of our Name on the "The Tree"!

At the end of Murray Road, for as long as I can remember in my 8 summers here, as well as the 32 summers my husband Dan and his sister Josee have been here, there has been the giant tree with all the names of cottagers families that are here. Last summer it was something that we wanted to do, have a sign put up with our name, but it kept falling to the back burner as other jobs around the cottages became more important. 

This summer however, it was time! 

Dan and Josee's mum, Nin, found a local artisan that was just down the road who makes wooden signs for cottages. An order was placed and two weeks later our sign was ready.

We decided that we wanted this to be a family activity to mark the occasion so we all headed out to watch as Dan hammered the nails into the tree and we officially became part of "The Tree". 
Some may see it as a mere task on a "to do list" but for us it was a day to remember. July 29, 2013 we added our family name to the tree that we've been driving past for the last 3 decades. Something we never thought would happen but we are blessed and proud that it has.

Gunville is now part of The Tree!
So now when you come to visit us be sure to look up and see Gunville as part of the Murray Road Roster!

Our official Name Sign! Woot Woot!

Time to Go Live!

We're pleased to present our cottage blog!

After a week of playing around with this thing, it's time to finally share what we've been working on.
Please be patient as some of the information and details might get tweaked in the coming weeks.

We're so excited to have summer right around the corner so that we can get ourselves down to the cottage to enjoy and relax!
There's already over 4 weeks booked and confirmed which is amazing!
