Some people have a shiny, unrealistic expectation of cottage life. In reality, it's not perfect but we love it that way. Cottage Life said, "Real cottagers have a more varied diet that can include beans and wieners, potato salad, macaroni, and peameal on a bun. The presence of bacon, potato chips, and sticky buns are sure signs of a real cottager." It's dogs rolling in the mud and then running into the house, messy hair from spending all day on the boat and happy carefree memories to last a lifetime! Cottage life is all about embracing those imperfections, letting loose, and having fun.
