Celebrate the Lake
This week, I'm celebrating the lake.
My happy place.
I seldom leave school as quickly as I did Friday. My husband couldn't believe it when I pulled in the driveway....and I already had half the car packed since I loaded a few things before school. That of course, got Chloe all worked up. She knew something was going on.
We arrived about 7 and had plenty of time to turn on the water and check for leaks before I went down to the beach to catch my first sunset of the season.
Sunset is almost a sacred time at Sandbar. Most of us stop whatever we are doing and just breathe it in.
Then, it was enough with the chores that could be done later (or even tomorrow), we headed out to find the friends we have missed all winter. We spent a couple of weekends with them since we closed last fall, but it's not the same as just sitting and enjoying each other, even if we don't talk.
As we sat on a friend's deck and watched the last of the sun, I just smiled, thinking how lucky I am to have this.
Our oldest and his family came out during the afternoon (we weren't the only ones anxious for us to open the cabin). It rained off and on, but even that didn't dampen our spirits. It was good to be together.
All in all, it was a day to celebrate. Chloe agrees!
