Paradise Found!

 Hello, all my bloggy friends! So happy to be back posting on my blog. I have missed you all so much!

Well, we are finally all moved into our new lake house! It was a grueling  couple of days, as we pretty much packed and moved everything ourselves, plus we had the help of our son and his friend one of those days. We are already so happy with our new home! My hubby, who took the week off, as well as having Labor Day weekend off, says he feels like we are on vacation, but it's permanent! I don't think it's fully soaked in for either of us, that we are actually lake people now!

 Beautiful views.
 My hubby got to bring some of his rocks from the previous house to landscape our lake house. Thus came the name, Cairn Cottage.(They were temporarily put on our patio till he puts them in just the right spots around the yard.)
Our Chihuahua, Jet, even loves the views from our living room!
Evenings are quiet and peaceful.
Being on the west side of the lake allows us to see the sun rise every morning.
My hubby and I fished off of our seawall and caught 8 fish the first morning we were there!
Even the wildlife gives beauty to our days, These swans were right out in front of our house yesterday.
So majestic!
I love this swan photo I took with the reflection,
It was quite a wait for us to make this move, but well worth waiting for, I think. There are many things we plan on doing to upgrade and decorate our new place, so I will be posting new updates and pictures, as we continue to make Cairn Cottage our very own little piece of paradise!
