I went to one of the happiest places on earth on Monday. The lake.
I've been realizing more and more how blessed I am to live in such a beautiful state. Washington totally rocks. I cannot fathom what it would be like to not spend summers at lakes. I live less than an hour away from probably 20 lakes. All stunningly beautiful. It has always been a goal of mine to live on a lake... and not just during the summer, but all year round. Frozen over or snowy, warm and sunny- you name it, the lake is for me. Loon Lake is particularly my favorite. It's completely crystal clean (well, pretty much all of our lakes are), warm sandy beaches, and totally private. It has such an old school cabin feel to it. I learned to swim there. I've had every birthday party there since I was 3. I've spent countless long summer days there with my brother and sister. It's the perfect place to be.
Plus I got an awesome new camera for my birthday... and it was fun to take pictures! :)
