the lake house revisited // days three and four

lake house revisited || days three and four

My happy place.

Lake House Day Three
Somehow on this day I managed to sleep fifteen hours and well into the afternoon. I have no explanation. I woke up once at seven AM and then again in the afternoon. There was no in-between. And I was severely disappointed that I missed so many lake house hours.

After a late start to my Saturday, I got some coffee and breakfast, showered, and didn’t do my face because who has the time at 2pm? Sister and I then went on bike ride number two of the weekend.

Coco butt continued to entertain us with her obsession with swimming.

No make-up faced Jamie and her trusty side-kick Coco had a little cuddle time on the screened in porch. Coco wasn’t so sure that the neighbors should be working on their own sprinklers.

Day Four
The final day is always a bummer. We pack up the house, clean, and just generally prepare to vacate the premises. I avoided the fifteen hour sleep this day and was able to enjoy our rainy send-off.

Three of my very favorite things. Coffee, photography, and a good book.

Despite all of the things that happened in my personal life the past few weeks, things are actually starting to turn around in a big way. Ever since the lake house, being positive and being excited and moving forward are normal. I’m not chasing my negative thoughts and trying to turn them around. Instead I am working with the knowledge that everything is as it should be and what will be will be. My old, confident, single self is back, ladies and gents. It’s about dang time.

Invest in yourself, in your health, and in your happiness. You won’t regret it.
That’s all for the lake house this time, folks.

Until next time,

Jamie

the lake house, revisited || an introduction

the lake house revisited

Going to the lake house seems to be becoming our Easter tradition. It is a great place to detox and just be quiet with family. Kasey and Jon have been going for years. This was my second time, and already I am ready to go back. The house has water access, a fantastic dock right on the water, a screened porch, a lot of coffee with Gilmore Girl sized mugs, and blissful silence. The neighbors fish and offer you the use of their docks, but mostly everyone keeps to themselves and waves as passersby.
I will be posting two more posts about this Lake House trip, but if you’re impatient for those, check out these three posts from last time (1, 2, 3). I’m pretty impressed with how much my photography has changed in a year.

Until next time,

Jamie
