What a Difference a Year Makes

Last Year, we ended a whirlwind of summer adventures with a weekend at our family's lake house right after the 4th of July. This year, in what we are officially making an annual tradition, we spent the long holiday weekend there with my sister's family, once again. Last year, my niece, Harper, was a tiny little not-quite-3-month-old baby. This year, she was keeping up with her clearly adored older cousin, and fascinated by her equally adored younger cousin, who last year, was but a tiny fetus in my womb! It's amazing to look back and see how much everyone has changed in the past year, and our time away was as fun and relaxing as ever. We are so fortunate to have a beautiful little slice of paradise to get away to, to enjoy the fresh air and water as much as we enjoy watching these little people grow up together.

I'm already looking forward to next year's adventures in fun in the sun, fireworks, campfires, barbecues, late night games, and days filled with joy and love!
