I took these pictures a week and a half ago before we began our epic 1500 mile journey North to Michigan, hence the shed door background. I am currently sitting in our rented lake cottage, with my feet up on the coffee table and the beautiful, sun dappled lake out the big picture window to the left of me. It’s a “pinch me, please, is this real?” moment. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, like getting a call saying you will go two+ weeks without your belonging and will be possibly living in an empty house during the biggest holiday week ever. We got a call like that last Wednesday during a Wendy’s pit stop somewhere in Kentucky. I went into panic mode and had some air mattresses lined up and really, really thought we would have to camp out while we waited for our household goods. See, we had our stuff packed up in Jacksonville and it got here sooner than we did (which never happens), then it got put into storage. Apparently there is a backlog of people waiting for there household goods as well, so we get to wait until July 10th for ours. Yay! Can you hear the sarcasm?
Then (then!) we found a cottage in town that was miraculously free for 10 days and we rented it. I kept waiting for the catch. Is this for real? Would it be infested with rats and swarming with mosquitoes? Were we really this lucky to stumble upon something this good on such short notice? You guys….this cottage is even better than I could have imagined! Three bedrooms, on a lake a sandy beach, on the prettiest little gravel road you ever did see. It is pure magic.
We are going to take the next 10 days or so and paint our house and get acquainted with the area. We have friends here already and we have days and days of picnics on the deck, Fourth of July fireworks and some homemade ice cream thrown in. And a trip to Target, because THIS GIRL under packed again and I have approximately three things to wear and I just did a 30 day no shopping challenge (must do those to recharge, right?) and I am ready to buy something. Anything. Everything. Whatever.
On to the link up!
Dawntelle, Rebecca, Brandi, Kayleigh, Courtney and I have a recurring link up (the first Tuesday of every month) where we come up with a theme and see how we each all style it. This months theme is NEON! What fun is neon, really? I personally cannot get enough of it. It perks up every outfit and makes me feel a touch bit cooler than I really am (I’m not, in case you were wondering….) What I need YOU to do is link up your favorite neon look below. In a week each one of us will pick our favorite and showcase your look on our blog. That is 6 different chances to be chosen! We will also announce next month’s theme as well next Tuesday…any ideas?
The rules: you MUST be a follower of our blogs (have your tried Bloglovin yet?) and MUST link back to one of us in your post. That’s it! So link on up your neon looks, lady friends…I really love seeing your posts and getting inspired by you all.
