**Edit: Ok so, this post was meant to go up last Monday, but I had to put it on the back burner for another post. It’s from the previous weekend. Nevertheless, I decided to share it today anyway. **
This past weekend was my brother’s birthday. He’s 28 now. 28!!! That’s 2 years away from 30! I just can’t believe how fast time goes and it feels like just yesterday that we were graduating high school. My brother and I are a year apart and since he was the older sibling, I always looked up to him. If you read any of my past posts, you’d know that he is a web developer and he helped me revamp my blog a few months back. He’s very talented at pretty much anything he picks up. I wish I had his knack for learning things so easily.
Anyway, we decided for his birthday that we were going to have a nice little family celebration at my mom’s lake house. She and her fiance have a nice little spot right along the water. One of my favorite parts about their lake house is their deck.
Yes that is a bed swing hybrid thingy. Yes I wish it was mine. Haha. I could almost bare the heat for this relaxing atmosphere. My brother and I were only there for the night so we didn’t get to go out on the boat or anything, but it was still a great time nonetheless.
My brother is not a huge fan of cakes, so instead of getting a regular cake, we got him a cookie cake because it’s technically not a cake, right? As you can see, the writing on it was a little bit messy. I think this was the first time that lady had done writing on a cake. Still, it was very delicious and my brother seemed to enjoy it too. Personally, I like all kinds of cakes, so as long as it’s sweet, I’m in.
The night ended with my brother playing us a little tune on his guitar while the crickets were chirping, you know, your typical southern lake night sounds and all that stuff. Sitting there with those beautiful sounds and scenery really made me wish I had my own place by the water. Doesn’t have to be a lake, it could be a beach or a pool or whatever, just as long as I have a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere.
I wish I had more pictures to show you, but being the terrible blogger that I am, I was too caught up in the moment to remember to take a lot of pictures. I hope you had a great weekend!
