During the school year I delve right into my academic workload and school friends living away in a college town, and now that I'm back home in the city with a busy work schedule, I was finding that all-to-familiar school stress feeling building. And despite my love for planning and organization -- I booked a Wednesday off and asked a few old friends to do the same. Destination: unknown & unchartered
We found ourselves back near my old family lake house (my family had two when I was growing up), I hadn't been back since we sold the property about 5 years ago, and going with my cousin we told so many stories of growing up and what great springs, summer, and fall vacations we had at our dear "big cottage". Sitting by the lake we had a picnic with freshly picked strawberries and talked about anything BUT what stresses us out.
Is there anything like a good book and a barefoot walk by the lake to clear your head?
We went from a walk down the road by our cottage, and our neighbor was selling this fabulous golf cart! It reminded me of something out of The Great Gatsby -- as the owners lived across from the golf course and beside the lake. It had velvet interior and was FOR SALE! Is it my birthday yet? (6 months away, but who's counting?)
