Amazed with how great they turned out (though I shouldn’t be), overwhelmed with the emotions that return as I look back over the visual proof of the day and overwhelmed with the almost impossible task of deciding which ones to print, which ones to enlarge and which ones to share.
I decided to start the sharing process with my favorite pic from the wedding day.
Isn’t this photo awesome? I love it!
Before you start thinking the train was photo-shopped in…it wasn’t.
And I’ve got proof.
For several weeks, okay months, I’d been noticing how dirty our garage lanterns were.
Upon closer inspection they weren’t dirty they were faded. Really faded.
Our garage faces west and 8 years of sun exposure had done a number on their finish. While you might look at these photos and think this is a nice patina, don’t be fooled. They just looked old and dirty. Very dirty.
So after much hassling, nagging and begging Scott finally took the lanterns down for me so I could paint them.
Have you ever looked back through your Pinterest Boards with a fresh eye and considered the items you’ve pinned?
After recently pinning a few new slipcover pics I browsed back through some of my boards and notice just the tiniest preference for ruffled linens. Many of them using washed linen with raw edges. I adore this look.
Yet I don’t have one single item like this in my home. Why?
Why do we take the time to pin these inspiring photos yet fail to act on the inspiration? Whether it’s an item for our home, exercises for a flatter tummy, recipes for a healthier lifestyle or tips on saving money…it seems our intentions are good but our follow through is a bit lacking.
When you think about the fact that this lake house was probably built in the 70’s the floor plan is perfect for the way we live today.
The upstairs consists of a large living room, dining room and kitchen, divided only by 2 walls, and a large wall of windows looking out over the lake. Plenty of space for multiple people to all hang out at the same time.
