{Loon Lake}

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! :)


  1. I spent last weekend at Coeur d'Alene lake...perfection as always! I completely know what you mean :)

  2. So Beautiful!!!
    My sister-in-law lives on a lake and she enjoys every season so much because of the beauty of the lake. Fall,Winter,Spring, and of course, the fabulous Summer!
    Hope things are going well at the shop,

    P.S. The Hippie/J.Crew wedding is coming up soon. Can't wait!

  3. Great pictures Amanda! It's been ages since I've been to Loon Lake, but I know what you mean. I've been going to Priest for over 30 years and it's part of who I am.

    When you get a minute, check out this post on my Alice in Wonderland party I was telling you about when I was in the store. You'll see how I used the mushrooms I was showing you and the Farm Chicks cupcake papers. http://homeswheremyheartis.blogspot.com/2010/08/big-surprise-wonderland-unveiled.html

    Hope you're having a great day!!


  4. Hooray for your new camera! Yup, to live on a lake would be pretty sweet...this one seems especially pretty!

  5. Ahhh... I grew up at Loon Lake and still visit just about every Sunday for lunch with my mom! Granite Point has the best swimming area around : )

  6. Great pics with your new camera and beautiful subject. Happy Birthday! La


I'd love to hear from you
