Scenes from Vacation



Re-entry into the normal routine was rough today. For the past four days, this was the view I enjoyed with my morning coffee. My hubby and I spent four magical days at a friend’s lake house with some of our favorite people in the whole world and I wish I was still there.


The weather was perfect the entire time.


There was swimming.


And reading. (Hubby is very engrossed in this book.)


And fishing lessons. Alas, we didn’t catch anything.


Sunset boat rides.


So lovely.



Not sure what was so amusing … but we had a good time.


These two. My bestie and her boo.


My soul mate friend. Seriously. Now that we live hundreds of miles apart, I savor the times when we are together.

I was melancholy all day today because I miss this place and these friends already. Plus, the AC was broken when we got home. What a welcome. But I am so, so grateful for the time we spent on the lake swimming, drinking, eating, talking, relaxing … I feel better, more myself. I’m thankful to have these people in my life, and for the time we were able to spend together. These are memories I’ll treasure.

P.S. Find my friend Abbey’s blog at The Book Borrower. She’s a super writer and has great book recommendations to boot. I think we spent roughly half our time together talking about cool stuff we’ve read, writing, journalism, etc. One of the many reasons we are bosom buddies.
