Almost two years ago I had a post entitled, "Empty". It was about my grandmother's home in Aitkin.

I visited the post today and it took me back to how I was feeling when I wrote it - the house was empty and so was I. Well my friends, empty no more.

My dad just purchased the little house and I couldn't be happier.

I know it isn't on a lake or a river, but it is perfect just as it is. It will be our
little retreat in the middle of lake country and most of all it is the setting of some of my most beloved childhood we will be able to have our children make their own memories.

Oh, btw it is open to any blog friends who would like a "in town" north-woods retreat.
