Sometimes All You Need is a Little Family Lovin

With my internships taking up the majority of my time it is nice to slow down and enjoy family. Its hard to beat spending time with the people you love and listening to some great music too.

My beautiful sister!

Best. cousin. ever.

It is also extremely nice to see my brother, with him at school in the UP I feel like I only see him a couple times a year. In fact I don't think I will see him again until Christmas. I suppose that gives me something wonderful to look forward to!

The Secret Lake

You know how you have those spots that remain unnamed even though you frequent them throughout the years. This place is simply referred to as 'the secret lake'. Now, I am not entirely sure how secret it is, it sits on state land and there is a dirt road leading to it with a clearing at the end, but for all the times we have been there, we have never seen anyone else. I suppose that it only gives the illusion of being secret, but I rather like it that way.

I found this vintage purse at an antique mall. It was too reasonable and beautiful to pass up.

These pictures were taken the last time we headed out to the secret lake. We had just left an awards banquet and had the afternoon to relax. This is where we chose to do so.

I have to say I really love this dress. I think I wore it more than any other dress I own last year. It was a good length and I love that it is sheer on the top. I also love the effect of the flowers fading.
