Time For Emotional Spring Cleaning

I mentioned on Instagram this past week that I have been taking a little time off and quite frankly, have briefly checked out for a little. These feelings are something that’s been boiling up in me for the past month or two and something that I’ve only expressed to a few close people to me.

Alec grew up on a lake that is now so dear to our hearts, (and my parents now live on it too!), so when we got engaged and a little house went on the market, right on the lake AND right down the street from both of our parents, we knew we wanted to go after it…
