As summertime sweetly came to an end in Charlotte, I wanted to soak up the last few moments together as a family before the school bell rang. Some of our favorite memories were created here at the lake house; relaxing in the back yard, going for sunset boat rides, playing in the sand and splashing in the water. The lake has a way of making life feel like time is standing still and there is no agenda.
These are the moments we live for. I want to look back in 50 years and remember the way Ellie's curly hair was flying in the air, as she and Lilly chased each other with their ‘superhero capes’ in the yard. I want to remember the sweet talk about heading into middle school Lilly trusted me with as we cuddled up on the beach and dug our toes in the sand. I want to remember us trying to do yoga on the bank and the girls laughing at the funny poses we came up with or the lack of balance Steven and I had. I want to remember Marlon barking at every squirrel he laid eyes on and how his run was like someone hit the slow motion button on a remote control. I want to remember how Steven gently reached out for my hand and looked at me as we watched the girls build sandcastles. I want to know how these moments felt and never forget. I want to tuck them away deep down in my heart, like a treasure and absolutely never forget how they made me feel. Incredibly grateful for life and my family.
