Just spent a week with this view outside my bedroom window:

Lake Lure, North Carolina, to be specific. We rented a huge house for 11 of us plus one dog, 5 kids under age 7 with our two (4 and 6) being the oldest, which made our lives considerably easier. 208 stairs to the lake. One of us (not me) brought along a ski boat.

SO hot. Very little internet. No cell service. Much swimming. Many beers. Many firsts for our kids including jumping off the dock and flying on an airplane.

It’s a beautiful area, but I was SO happy to come home to dry air and a nice breeze. It was 52 degrees this morning at our house which is about 15 degrees cooler than the mornings there.

I’ll share more pics later. Gotta catch up to life and work for now.
