This past weekend, we loaded up the car and headed East for 3 wonderful days at the lake. Talk about fun & relaxing! We enjoyed lazy mornings sipping coffee on the deck, laying out & watching Avery play in the pool for the first time, wine tasting, and just enjoying the views. They were abundant.
Myself and 13 of my friends rented the Oma Lodge for our ‘4th Annual Homie Holiday' getaway.
