This weekend, my husband and I accompanied the youth group from our church on a trip to the Lake. We spend the evening eating yummy guacamole and playing Loaded Questions. Tomorrow we will play on the lake all day; skiing, wakeboarding and knee boarding.
Every time that we’ve come on this trip I’ve become even more jealous. The house that we stay in is gorgeous and in perfect location. It’s far enough away from home that you actually feel you’ve gotten away for the weekend and yet it’s close enough that you CAN go away for the weekend. Jay and I have wanted to purchase a piece of property in this area for a long time. At one time we had a group of 5 or 6 friends that wanted to go in on it and share, kind of like a time share or group getaway.
I don’t want to do that anymore. I want something of our own that we can build and decorate exactly as we want it. Partly because I want to be able to share it with the youth groups and not have to worry about how our investment partners have decorated or when they want to use it but mostly because I want something of our own that we can invite people to when we feel like sharing.
For the time being it doesn’t even need to have a structure on it. That can be something we work up to but I do want it to be our own. And have a lot of land for roaming, 4 wheeling, gardening and building when we’re ready.
My parents have a home at the Lake in Arizona but we’re too far from Arizona to actually get to enjoy it more than once or twice a year. I do love when we go there. If it was closer, I’d be happy with that and not even worry about spending money to invest in land of our own. But, we’re not.
