Nature Ride

Most afternoons these days are spent on the dock
Some nights we have a cold beverage - we are soaking up the outdoors and life on the lake
which is wonderful

Usually, after dinner we hop in the boat and our biggest decision of the day is whether to go up river or down river

We decided up river the other night

Excuse the no makeup look
We live on the lake after all - my foundation these days is sunscreen

Driving up river requires you to stay between the buoys
very Jimmy Buffet

I can't get enough of the view and the water and the sunsets 

There are really no houses up river...

...except for this little plantation house...
Can you see it through the trees?
It's so beautiful and what a view they have!

Love the moss and trees on the water

If you look close you can see a turtle!
There is wildlife everywhere...which is good and bad (snakes...enough said)
One day I'll tell you all about the time T took me alligator hunting ... at night ... and he made me hold the the 90 degree weather...bugs, more bugs, and bugs...Lets just say I could have divorced....well nevermind

Love that everyone waves

and all the lilypads

and our pink house

Happy Weekend, Everyone
Enjoy a sunset or two!

How chic is she?  That dress is perfection.  I am beyond obsessed.

That river ride was simply naturally gorgeous (kind of like you sans makeup)...I think your pink house is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen! And Kate is *beyond* lovely in that dress...she is always so spot on! Happy weekend, darlin'!

Lilypads take me back to the days of being a little girl and putting around his lake in my grandparents' paddleboat. I used to love skimming my hand along the surface of the water and then snapping up a lilypad -- that slippery underside was just the greatest. This is your everyday life! PERFECTION!

Y'all are making such incredible memories now--I'm sure someday you'll be telling your kiddies about when you lived at the lake! And yes--you must share that alligator hunting story!

Jamie said...

Ahhh I LOVE the lake! I'm pretty sure we've past by y'alls pink how many times :)

I love Kate's dress too...beautiful!

Tess said...

You could honestly pass as a Kate Middleton look-a-like! You both are equally stunning!

Your pink house is too cute for words...but I love the colorful chairs you have out front. So perfect!! Looks like your having quite the summer - keep enjoying it!

Melissa said...

I'm glad that I have found someone who is equally as tickled with everything the Duchess of Cambridge does : ) I think they are super cute and so much fun to watch!

Just found your blog and it's so fun! Nothing better then lake living, especially in 90 degree weather! What an adorable cottage and boat house! You are certainly going to have some good memories there. I'm your newest follower and will be visiting often!

Sounds like a prefect and serene place to live. I grew up on a lake and miss it! It's the best!!
