So we have officially entered into fall!  There are so many reasons for my deep love of this season.  Pumpkin spice lattes, apple pies, wearing scarves and boots, and the festive spirit in the air.  I just can't get enough!  Entering into this time of year is, however, not without its challenges.  It's really easy to get caught up in to-do lists and the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, and lets not forget the ever stressful Thanksgiving Turkey!  
 
This year the festive season is going to look very different for my husband and I as we will be enjoying it all through the eyes of our sweet little boy! Having him in our lives has already changed how we see things and I know its going to be ever more obvious over the holidays.  What I have learned is that he finds joy in EVERYTHING! The smallest, silliest little things are now huge triumphs filled with giggles and smiles.  I want to remember this.  I want it to become a part of my DNA so that whatever season I am in the hustle and bustle just disappears into the background and the JOY becomes the focus.  
 
For some of us this means having a quiet place.  A place to be still and refocus on what is important.  A place to just take a breathe and escape.  My encouragement to you is to find a spot where you can find your child-like joy this season. And if that spot happens to be on the lake- let us help you find it.
