last week

so there was a lake in our life last week.

the {tiny} house in which we stayed had forty-seven steps leading down to the lake.  at the base of those steps, on our {tiny} rocky beach, there were boats for us to use…a rowboat, kayaks, a canoe.  we paddled a lot.  i’ve got blisters on my thumbs to prove it.

i always enjoy our family vacations.  but this one…well, it was actually relaxing and restful. like for real.  i suppose it helps that the kids are getting a little older. but it also helped that pretty much all there was to do was boat or fish or skip rocks or read.  we hiked one day, but mostly we were on the water {only in it one day, as it was chilly} or curled in a chair reading. it was quiet.  quiet, i tell you.

and as if the relaxing family time and the lake and the hills and the clouds and the wind {i do love wind} weren’t enough, on top of that i met a dear online friend {and her almost-one-year old with the cutest ever curls atop his head} for coffee.

yes, it was a good week.

it feels good to be home now.  it’s good to be away, but it’s good to return too…i like both parts.  the week away was exactly what we needed.  and i am more than a {tiny} bit grateful.

i hope your week was a good one too.

sending a little love your way, m
