The Lakehouse 2014

July 17, 2014 |  Category:   friends life travels











It’s hard to believe how much bigger the kids are since the last time we visited our friend Sara’s lakehouse 2 years ago. They seemed so little the previous years we’ve spent our Fourth of July here. So much has happened to both our families in the past year, but there’s nothing like sitting out on the dock in the first morning light, taking in all the sparks of light that reflect off the water’s surface. This year the girls were able to swim across the lake to the other side of the dock, with flotation devices of course, but still an accomplishment. They marked their names on the inside of the living room closet, adding their names to the list of family and friends who have completed that swim in past years (never mind that they technically cheated). They’re etched now into the history of the house.

    The fact that I read your lakehouse posts like one goes through a family album attests to the how long I’ve been reading your blog. This is such a lovely and special place you have here.

    So so beautiful! Summer days in lakehouses and cabins and cottages all seem to have such an untouchable, magic feel to them. Wonderful place to spend with family.

    I missed this because we have been traveling. I love this, of course. I cracked up at the girls writing their names on the wall. I was so glad you came. xoxxo
