show us your life ~ favorite vacation spot

This week on Show Us Your Life hosted by the lovely Kelly @ Kelly's Korner it's all about your favorite vacation spot. This one was tough for us because we really don't go on vacations. No pity necessary, it just hasn't been possible in the last several years. Between Courtney's health, our very, very tight budget and hubby's travel schedule, it has not been possible. We like to take day trips when we can but we haven't been away in a long while.

So I thought I would dream a little . If I could go on vacation these are two places I would love to be. Just look at the scenery. It's breathtaking.

Couldn't you just imagine a canoe ride on this lake or a lazy day spent fishing. I could see Courtney and I curled up on a hammock reading Anne of Green Gables while the breeze comes off the lake. I can see log cabins and screened in porches. Ahhh the bliss!!

Now if I was in the mood for a little fun in the sun, Bahama's here I come. That would be MY chair you see pictured above and I would be reading a lovely epic while sipping on my favorite fruity drink, paper umbrella included. The surf and sand...I can feel the waves lapping at my feet now. The only bad part of the trip would be the fact that I would have to wear a bathing suit. At this point that would feel like sausage casing...not pleasant at all. However...I would suffer through. 

So now it's time to wake up from my dream and get back to my daily duties. One day, one day soon I hope, my family and I will be whiling away the hours while listening to the soft sounds of nature. Whether in the mountains or by the sea, I don't care, as long as we are together.

Happy Summer!
