the lake house revisited // days one and two

Here we go, yo!
Lake house, year two.
“If you’re working out two hours every day on your body, you better make sure you’re spending three hours on your soul.” -Jaromir Jagr

The lake house is one of those places that is just good for the soul. Saying that we go “to get away” isn’t exactly accurate. We still have internet, and phones, and cameras, and movies. There’s just something about being outdoors, or a good screened in porch, that restores something in your heart that you didn’t know was missing to begin with.

Here are some ways that this trip was different from last year:
1. It was just me, Kasey, Jon, and Cocobutt.
2. The photography opportunities were a little short.
3. The weather was meh.
HOWEVER, that little empty place in my heart that I didn’t know needed filling was definitely very happy and content to spend a few days by the water with the wind and the quiet.

Day Two

The lake house makes everything look better. You know that face you see every day in the mirror? Better.
It makes everything taste better. That coffee you drink every morning? Better.
You know that song you always listen to? Better.
That book you read? Better.

The day started slowly. There was breakfast, coffee, showers, and a puppy. Kasey went back to bed after breakfast. Coco and I read on the screened porch.

There are two things that Coco really wants out of life. To swim and to cuddle. There are very few other things she is as passionate about. I have never in my life seen a dog swim as much as Coco.

After napping, and coffee drinking, and reading, and eating, and watching Coco be a dog, we went on a bike ride.

I legitimately enjoy working out. I do yoga. I love lifting weights. The occasional run on a treadmill happens. But riding bikes outside is probably one of the most enjoyable ways to work your butt off. Ever.

After biking several miles, we went back to the house, freshened up, and then drove into town for some good old fashioned Mexican food. As far as North Carolina goes, this place is pretty good.

We ate, we laughed, we drank and made merry. After dinner we walked to the grocery store and, as adults do, we bought ourselves some chocolate bunnies for Easter. We ended the night back at the lake house with a rousing game of Settlers of Catan and a good movie.

Do you guys have a soul-filling spot you like to visit, like my lake house? I’ll be back later next week with the last post from this year’s trip. Don’t forget to like this post if you enjoyed it and subscribe if you haven’t already!

Until next time,
