Raspberry Brownies

I just spent a long weekend in Maine. Oh how I love it!
It's off season, less people, and still just such a nice time

As an added surprise, my two older cousins came up for a couple of nights too.
As kids, they spent many an hour beating me up and doing everything in their power to exclude me from everything (ewww girl cooties and all that junk)

BUT, when one brother wasn't looking, the remaining one would always hang out with me.

As we have grown up, they have stopped giving me noogies and tossing me onto the bed.
We have such fun being together now.
After the 3 of us, it took 8 years before there was another we sort of feel like it's our own "club".

I love knowing I have them in my life.
Hubby loves them too...the three men spent time just sitting around the fire chit chatting.
We all slept in the loft's been many a moon since I have shared a room with them!

  4. Raspberry Brownies sound delicious. I love Maine although I've only visited briefly. I also agree with your quote about cousins. I have a cousin who is my godmother and she is just the most special person in my live. Thank you for sharing with us at #overthemoon link party.
