My guy and I are now the proud ex-owners of a lake house. An oldfashioned, filled-with-happy-memories lake house that will always be a part of us as we go on to new adventures.
The good thing is that the new owners are as excited to have the house as we were when we first moved there. They have a sailboat and a pontoon boat that's being delivered today, the day after we closed. And they planned to sleep there last night. A child was even driving up to be there with them. The whole family was thrilled.
And so were we. Nostalgic but relieved. Things change. People drift in and out of your lives and you make decisions accordingly.
You can't bring back the good times because nothing stays the same. If life didn't change, we'd be dead. So we've learned to enjoy each day and go with it.
As we're doing now and intend to do in the future.
Goodbye, lake house! Hello, island condo!
