July Fourth

                   “Idleness is not doing nothing. 
                    Idleness is being free to do anything.”
                                                                                                 ― Floyd Dell

This weekend we celebrated the Fourth of July with some of our dearest friends (and some new friends too). It was as close to perfect as a weekend can get. Without getting into any messy details, Todd's work-life is a bit stressful, and the timing for our getaway couldn't have been better. 

We spent two wonderful days reading, mostly on a deck overlooking the water (falling asleep in our chairs each time), boating on a beautiful private lake, swimming in a pool we had all to ourselves, and sharing delicious meals and funny stories with friends. It was heavenly.

Hope you had a restful, friends & family filled holiday!


  1. It looks heavenly. And I want those dishes.

  2. Sounds so fun! And I LOVE those yellow dishes so much!!

  3. Love that last shot of you - you are so beautiful.

    Looks like an absolutely perfect weekend. I'm so glad you were able to take a minute away and breathe together.

    Can't wait to see you soon and catch up, sweet girl.

  4. Docks are so inviting. I love that you fell asleep while reading. I'm not sure I would've gotten to the reading part before falling asleep!

    It looks like you had a wonderful holiday weekend. :D Thanks for sharing!
