Our “Someday” dream is to buy a lake house. We’ve been putting a little money aside, and we started to make a pile of our old, unused furniture in the basement. We were saving it all for Someday. We had dreams that Someday Maddie and Katie would look back on their childhood and remember fondly the summer days we spent at our lake house. They would remember the beautiful days spent on the boat, the dinners on the back porch, the starry-skied evenings around the campfire. Someday.
Over the years, the savings pile grew and Maddie and Katie did too. What are we waiting for, we wondered. So we searched and we searched until we found the perfect house. We signed our names on the dotted lines, and we made today Someday.
If you’re looking for me this summer, there is only one way to reach me. Get in your car and drive due east from Chicago to a little town in Indiana with a big lake. If you come early in the morning, you’ll probably catch me sitting on the back patio, sipping from a mug of coffee, looking at the water. If you come later in the day, chances are you’ll find me on our boat with a drink in my hand or maybe at the beach with my feet in the sand. You’re welcome to stay – we made sure there is room enough for guests at the lake house. We’re glad you could come…and welcome to Someday.
