A Weekend 'Fur' Relaxin'

To say I have been looking forward to this weekend for awhile is quite the understatement. A few months ago, Melissa, Penny, Amy, El and I decided we needed to get away together and I'm so excited to say, we actually made it happen. On Friday, we met each other in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. It turned out to be the perfect halfway point between Milwaukee and Chicago. Melissa had found a fantastic log cabin to rent that we called home for three days and two nights. And by fantastic, I mean, it was ridiculously fantastic. It was super comfortable and accommodated our group nicely. Plus, it featured a remarkable amount of bear and wilderness tchotchkes and pine scented candles. What more can you ask for? Besides a quick outing for bloody marys, hamburgers, firewood and Walmart, we pretty much hunkered down the entire weekend relaxing, chatting, eating and just enjoying being in each other's company. I miss these ladies like crazy, and sometimes the two hours that separate me from them is unBEARable (ha ha, get it?). But honestly, this weekend is exactly what I needed. It was an absolute blast, and once again, I just can't help but realize how extremely lucky I am.

Omg...the best week-end in every way. I love the last picture and seriously cannot figure out how those pork chops turned out! Loved every minute. xo
