Weekend at the Lake

If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water. ~Loren Eiseley


Well hello there, my fellow Friday loving friends!  This week at work has been cra-zy!  Since I work at a University, school starts Monday, so the week before is, well busy.  Last weekend however was soooo not busy.  My family and I rented a cabin in Lake Arrowhead for my dad’s birthday, and we spent 2.5 glorious days at the lake!


You guys, we did all the things you’re supposed to.  When we first arrived we made lunch and a big pitcher of rum punch.  We walked around, we fished, we swam, we grilled, we played card games, I read a really good book, the kind that makes you NOT-WANT-TO-LEAVE-THE-DECK-LIKE-EVER.  We stumbled upon a chili cook off and a concert in the park.  These are the type of weekends that make it all worth it, the work stress, and commute frustrations and dirty dish piles.  These are the weekends that just wash those life stresses away.


I truly hope as you guys soak up the last few weekends of summer, how can it be almost Labor Day?!?!  You find some time to get away with those you love!  And if you can’t manage to get a way completely, at least plan a good dinner with your family, preferably cooking and eating outside!

Happy Weekend everyone!!
