I'm reflecting on this time in part because I have been lucky enough to find a new camp tradition at Small Craft's Craft-a-way camp which happens this coming weekend in Waterloo State Park here in Michigan. Hooray! This will be my third year at Craft-A-Way camp and each time I am flooded with memories of my childhood camp experiences.
But really, Nyoda is in my thoughts these days because they suffered a great loss this spring when a fire wiped out four of the seven bungalows campers and counselors live in for the summer. In true Nyoda spirit, there has been an outpouring of support to get everything rebuilt and up and running for the 2015 camp season that starts July 5. They are almost there! If by chance you'd like to lend a hand — or send some dollars — the Give Forward campaign to rebuild is here.

In the late 1960s, my grandmother was the editor of Bride & Home magazine. This "Autumn Preview" issue from 1968 was saved for me by my mom. It featured photos of my parents' apartment in Manhattan. I love everything about this: From the stories highlighted on the cover, to the much hyped — and somewhat exaggerated — obsession by my parents of all things nautical in the article and apartment styling.
