The Last Lake Outfit

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Have you ever met someone who doesn't like polkadots? I used to date a guy who told me that all polkadots were "tacky" and that I shouldn't wear them. At first, being young and "in love", I listened to him and didn't wear any, which was easy given I really didn't have anything polka dotted at the time anyway. However, as time went on I started picking up polka items just to annoy him. It was obviously stupid on both ends, but really who hates polka dots? They are so amazing! Anywho, this is one of my favorite summer dresses, polka dots and all.

This is officially the last outfit post I have from our beautiful cabin on the lake. I would be lying if I said I wasn't sad to see us go. To me that cabin will always have been perfect. (Well, expect for the lack of washer and dryer.) I always knew we'd have to leave it, but leaving it, and Olympia, proved much harder for me than I ever expected. Still, I know the move is what's best for Michael and what allows him to pursue his dream, and since I can work from anywhere, it would be ridiculous to force him to stay in a place that is a working dead end for him just so that I wouldn't have to leave my friends. Either way, I am an emotional person and am notoriously crap at goodbyes, so it has been rough. It's times like these that I am so thankful that I blog, because without this little space I never would have taken so many photos of our gorgeous property, the yummy treats I made from all the wild berries, or any such things. This blog is a beautiful way to preserve my memories and our little cabin world, so that even if we must be forced by life to move on, there is one place where time can, if only in a picture, stand still.

      I think the blogosphere is such a wonderful place, and even though I am bad at responding to comments in a timely manner, or reaching out to make connections, I truly love the friendships and community that it creates when you take a few seconds to click out a phrase on a keyboard. It's pretty magical.
