“The deck, which wraps around the entire cottage, is visible behind the antique pine chair from my maternal grandmother. On the table sits the most valuable item at the cottage: a family photo album. We have 20 of these leather-bound books from Noble Macmillan, which my mother started collecting when we were living in London, England. Above that is a piece of driftwood that my mom found and spray-painted fluorescent orange recently to add a little flair.”
