I'm the kind of person who loves fall and always waits in great anticipation for its arrival. But, really, there isn't much that can compare to a beautiful summer day on the water. And there definitely isn't much that can compare to a weekend of fellowship with wonderful friends.
My small group spent this past weekend at a vacation house on Lake Oconee. It belongs to our friend Lindsay's in-laws who use it as a ministry for people to come stay, get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and relax. Even though I've never met them, Lindsay made sure to let us know that we could be at home there and I know I speak for the group when I say that their generosity was much appreciated. The house is beautiful and cozy and it was the perfect getaway for our group to end the summer with a bang before we jump into the crazy fall season...school, job changes, weddings, babies, holidays...it's all coming up so fast! I love these women. They are such an incredible group of friends and spending a few days together, just us, was seriously the best.
On Saturday, Lindsay drove the boat across Lake Oconee so we could enjoy an outdoor lunch together and then, on our way back, we stopped at this huge rock so the girls could jump off. I watched and encouraged...er...heckled them from the water. Then we spent the night on the dock playing Cranium and talking about life and love before we all fell asleep on the couch downstairs watching The Sword in the Stone. Party animals, right here.
Goodbye summer. Until next time!
