Summer Vacation

Today we are off for a little vacation to our cottage in Maine! I am so excited to just be away for a few days, and being in a gorgeous spot in the middle of nowhere makes it even better. This house has been in our family since my dad was a kid, and I have been going up there every summer since I was still in my mom's belly. It is truly home for me.

I have a few posts lined up in my absence, and I will post photos from the trip upon my return!

Most of my stuff before getting packed up! My lake vacation essentials: Kindle loaded with new books (Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Maine, A Little Bit Wicked), lightweight cotton, favorite jeans, bathing suits, a hoodie, sunscreen, the bare essentials of makeup, my camera and a great bag that goes with everything.

And I found a ladybug in one of my plants while I was getting things ready for the trip! Isn't it cute?

What are your vacation necessities?
