Karen: "Get a dishwasher! We spend enough time in the city working, who wants to spend time doing dishes at the cottage? You don't have to rough it up there..."
Karen: "I would forgo a Caribbean vacation to spend time at my cottage because I've made it so perfect and special. There aren't many other places I'd rather be. Invest in the spaces that make you happy."
Karen: "Every family is different, it's important to really understand what type of space makes them happy. But I do think people need to be spending a bit more money on their cottages -- they don't realize how attached they are to their cottages, more so than their homes! It's our leisure time, spend some money up there to make that time so much more enjoyable."
Sailing! Karen grew up sailing, so anything on the water.
