It’s said that running away from things doesn’t solve anything. True enough, however sometimes it’s just nice to forget all that we have to solve for just a short time. I believe it’s called a vacation. 🙂
I’ve been having somewhat of a problem lately with not only too much on my plate yet again, but too many undone projects all calling me at once. The feeling makes my head spin and I’m trying to be kinder to myself. My house and garage are once again a total chaotic mess. Plus a bored kiddo in the house wasn’t helping. So it was time to run away to save my sanity. 🙂
We, plus my son’s friend, just spent 3 nights at a local lakefront campsite only 15 min away from us. It appears the vacation spots I’m most drawn to involve a body of water, so this last one was an absolute feast for my eyes and soul.

Pretty hard to worry about not having washed the floors for abit too long when you’re sitting here after a wonderful bike ride along a lakeside path.
Or completely forgetting you didn’t make your bed at home while having your morning view in this spot.
I most certainly forgot about my unmowed lawn I left in our quake to get outta town when this pretty skyline was found.
“The Majestic Pit Stop”
Giant piles of laundry sat waiting for me as I appreciated larger than life bark rising high above the world.
And just when you think the world can’t get prettier right before your very eyes, it does. Much prettier than what my chaotic garage looks like.
Waves washing ashore didn’t even hint at all the watering my garden required.
And here’s a little patio that was much more tidy than my own. I was passing by these million dollar lakefront cottages when the 1 story artsy cutie pie caught my eye the most. Click on the picture to drink up more details! It’s quite delightful. Even the chairs were left to weather naturally.
And here’s one for the DIY crowd. An adorable rustic frame created out of found driftwood lovingly collected over time. WE can do THIS!
How about this quirky little log bench? There were many log benches to be found, but this one was the most unique with the asymmetrical back rest. Funky quirky even. 🙂
And how about a DIY for campers. This was located within the campsite itself. Someone had hidden their parking area with water skis. I thought it was VERY clever and perfectly themed. Wouldn’t this hide my RV driveway full of weeds ever so nicely?!? 🙂
This spot was my fav so far this year. I love a lake walking distance from my cup of coffee in the AM. 🙂
And then reality had to hit. I came home to whatever mess I had left. How considerate for all of it to just… wait for me…
How do you chill out?
