I think I can call it a tradition now... | Simple Scrapper SPARK Magazine

"I think I can call it a tradition now. Going to a cottage or a ‘tiny house’ in this case during the month of January to document memories . We are the memory keepers. But when I look back, we are not documenting the memories but rather making memories. Making memories outside of our immediate familes - with our girlfriends. A place where we can let go and unwine. Ahem. Excuse me, we definitely have a place for the wine. The drinks are as much a part of these trips as anything. Kristen makes drinks and Jess learns how to make the drinks but Cathy just drinks the drinks. We laugh. We do a lot of that. We eat. Usually a charcuterie board is involved. We talk. Maybe too much. I have to admit to Colleen that she’s right - time with girlfriends may actually add years to our lives. This trip we found ourselves overlooking the Conception Bay in Carbonear in the Parsons’ tiny house. A place where a white cat might hop up on the window sill and scare you silly. A place where you can sit in blue Adirondack chairs and listen to the ocean wearing Paula’s pyjamas with Kristen yelling sweet nothings in your ear, ‘You from da Pearl, Maid?!?’ It’s a place where down the street you become fast friends with the waiter and the cook at the Baccalieu B&B discussing gay rights and everything in between. I know I am lucky to call these girls my friends. They are pretty special.
