Memorial Day In A Small Town

This past weekend we went to a beautiful small town in Central Florida called Lake Placid for my husband's family reunion! Lake Placid has gorgeous lakes (as you can imagine by the name!), the nicest people, and small town charm for miles! I loved celebrating Memorial Day with such a large group of family. My Grandfather and Great Uncle were both veterans, and I am so thankful for all of our heroes who have served our great country!

 Avery and Charlotte had the best time playing with cousins, swimming/boating all day and eating snow cones! Kris and I have been married for almost 9 years so his family has become like my own, and I treasure this time too! Being at the lake isn't the most relaxing for us moms with little ones, but we always make it fun! 

On Saturday, while Charlotte was napping and Avery was out on the boat with my father-in-law, I met up with one of my very best friends, Katie, who happened to also be in Lake Placid for the weekend! In addition to being one of my favorite people in real life, she is also a blogger! Her blog, Palm Beach Farm, is amazing! Katie and I met 9 years ago when I first moved to South Florida. My mother in law, and her mom were in a church small group together and they both told us that we had to meet the other! When I met Katie, I knew she would be a friend for life! She is genuine, loyal and SO much fun! We always shared our love of fashion but now we also get to share our journeys has moms of young children as well! Katie is a super woman balancing life as a mom to THREE boys all while doing it with such fabulous style!  

 We had so much fun shopping at our favorite local boutique, The Blueberry Patch, drinking green smoothies/pressed juice at the vegan restaurant and snapping some outfit pictures! I fell in love with this super affordable off the shoulder maxi dress while shopping last week and brought it with me on our weekend trip. It is super comfortable and breezy for hot summer days. It would also be great to wear to the beach as a cover-up and then to lunch or pieces that are versatile!

I took this picture on Sunday - all of the girl's cousins had gone home for the weekend, and Avery was crying because she missed them...she has such a sweet heart! Charlotte walked over and hugged her. So happy to capture a candid moment like this when they were not fighting, ha!

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
