Live. Laugh. Love.

I’m pretty sick of this expression too.  I feel like every home in America has this saying on a wooden plaque somewhere in their house.  It’s so overused that somewhere along the way it has totally lost its meaning and is now just a trendy expression.  But yet, I can’t think of a better way to describe what this past weekend was for us. We spent the weekend with good friends and their two amazing kids, Sabrina and Noah at our family’s lake house.  And we lived. And we laughed.  And we loved.

  • We dined outside on lobsters and Filet Mignon at sunset overlooking the lake
  • We enjoyed a boat ride while the kids marveled at the sites, like Turtle Rock

  • We belly laughed at Addison’s literal portrayal of Chirades
  • We quietly observed the sweet beginnings of friendship, as Sabrina whispered to Jake, “I think we might be becoming a little bit best friends.”

  • We bounced ourselves dizzy on the trampoline

  • We witnessed an important milestone in Sabrina’s childhood – fishing for the very first time!

  • We enjoyed many cocktails without needing a designated driver
  • We staged an impromptu photo shoot. Because we could
  • We went tubing with our kids off the JetSki and relished in their squeals of delight
  • Not once did we check email, use a cell phone or plug anything in that starts with a lowercase “i”
  • I actually beat my husband at something for the first time in 8 years
  • Matthew cut his two front teeth without so much as a whimper

  • We lasted an entire weekend without ever needing to utter the words “time out”
  • We made a bonfire, roasted marshmallows and enjoyed a starry, starry night
