And I got exactly what I wanted. Married a guy form the midwest & stayed here. While I don't really dislike it here, I miss home like crazy now. Mostly because of my family.. and the gorgeous scenery that doesn't exist in the flatlands.
It's funny.. I just didn't appreciate the place I grew up while I was there, and now it's the one place I'm missing. If I believed in Karma, I'd kick it in the face. :)
So now, the place I once longed to escape is the place I'm racing back to for vacation. Yeah. Vacationing back home. And I can't wait.
Z and I are taking a week in July and going home to spend a week on the lake. Picture it- cute little cottage surrounded by pine & birch trees, the old rope hammock swaying in the wind, the dock my dad made extending out into the cleanest lake water in the county, the speedboat docked & waiting to take us skiing, tubing, knee- or wakeboarding, the canoe and kayaks ready for calorie-burning morning trips as the sun rises, campfires & making smores with the family.. Heaven.
Oh. And there's nothing like waking up at dawn to a lake that's as smooth as glass and being the first waterskiers on the lake. Pure Heaven.
So, I wanted to share some pictures from our more recent (past ~2 yrs.) times at "camp".Sister #1 & I.. goofing off. :)Daddy & I.. a little blurry but I love it!Little cousin & I.Marshmallow Mouths... can you tell we're sisters??My boat driving skills have been known to flip a friend or two.. ;)We made our own comic.. :)The perfect summer snack!
I absolutely can't wait! What're you looking forward to this summer?
