We spent this past weekend at the lake with family. Growing up, we had a lake house in South Carolina, so our summer weekends were spent water skiing (no one does that anymore!), diving off the dock, and playing games on the screened porch. This past weekend was the first time I had been to the lake since my children were born, and it reminded me of how much I love those long summer days at the lake. By the end of the day, I was googling real estate sites for properties on the lake (ha- that won't be happening anytime soon!).
But if I had a lake house....
Our children and their friends/ cousins would sleep in a big bunk room.
Our bedroom would be decorated in soft neutrals with paneled walls.
I'd hang a couple of these chandeliers over
a long dining room table.

I'd curl up and take a nap on a big screened porch.
The stairs would be dressed with a striped runner.
A wooden Chris-Craft boat would be tied to the dock.
We'd watch the sun set into the water, with a glass of wine in hand.
Do you love the lake?
