A summer day at the lake…


Rope swings, lemonade, bunk beds, wildflowers in mason jars, peach pie, sailing, al fresco dining… ahhh summer!

Hi wonderlusters, above is a post I put together for the Cultivate site (remember Cultivate, my real job?), where I’m also blogging! Check out the post for details (including a recipe for peach pie from my darling colleague Nicole and a recipe for that lemon grilled chicken below), but I wanted to share here because the post was inspired by a summer day at Lake Chautauqua, and I’m headed there in a few short days to stay with my oldest sister and her family!

And, I really couldn’t be more excited. Another of my sisters is joining too and bringing her one year old son, William, who I am absolutely enamored with, so, this is basically going to be the best summer vacation ever!

Oh, and in case that wasn’t enough, before I get there, I have my cousin’s wedding in Asheville, NC this weekend!!  So much to look forward to!!!!

A quick congrats today to two of my sisters and their husbands– Ali and Charles and Leslie and Tim– who had a double wedding on this day 20 years ago! I’m so so happy for y’all and your cute families and so glad to be your little sister/sister-in-law/aunt!

    A double wedding!! How cool! That’s one of those things that you hear about more in theory than in practice, I think. How did that work? That’s too awesome. Happy anniversary to your sisters, and happy lake vacation to you!
