after nearly four(!) weeks on keuka lake, we are finally headed home to ps! we’ve had a wonderful summer here soaking up loads of cool rainy mornings and warm breezy afternoons, canoeing, swimming, berry picking , hiking and lounging about dockside. we’ve baked and eaten gobs and gobs of cookies, fresh fruit tarts, pies and all things summery-sweet. i can hardly believe another season at the lake has come and gone (our last as a family of 3!)

while it’s always a bit sad to say goodbye, there’s nothing quite like coming home. i’m mostly looking forward to snuggling ben and getting our place (and ourselves) ready to welcome baby this fall! i promise more frequent updates and musings from pretty in ps soon, until then, here are a few of my favorite moments (and meals!) from our summer on the lake…

hello, hello from the lake!

we arrived here nearly a week ago to a house full of yummy food, delicious wine and cozy beds. we’ve been spending our days on the dock, toes in the water, drinks in hand, not an ipad or phone in sight. i’m thinking my updates will be sparse in the weeks to come-the sun and rain and water are all just too good to pull away from for more than a few moments. summer as it should be!

as i sit here gazing out the window, rain streaming steadily down the lake and the scent of homemade chocolate chip cookies wafting in from the kitchen, i am instantly reminded of the absolute joy the most simple summer delights can bring. though there have already been far too many of these lovely moments to capture (family sails, fabulous meals, blissful cups of morning coffee on the porch-to name a few!) here are just a handful of our favorite lake moments so far…

it’s a gray morning here in palm springs (the kind I secretly wish for more of in this land of perpetual sunshine). and while i’m loving the peace and stillness of a cloudy day, i’m also relishing in the memory of the beautiful, lazy weekend we had here in ps. are you ever just completely struck by how beautiful life is? this weekend was such a celebration of good food, wonderful friends and all the sweetest hallmarks of summer-night swims, fresh peaches, golden sunsets- i just couldn’t help but celebrate (and try to capture) the color and the feel of happiness that was in the air here…

a gorgeous, cool saturday morning spent swimming and lounging in our own backyard

happy father’s day to all those great dads out there! we’re enjoying a wonderfully lazy weekend here in palm springs. we’ve snuggled up with loads of family movies, had an impromptu water fight or two, treated our papa to some delicious dim sum, and, of course, dug a few giant holes! hope you are all indulging in a healthy dose of family time with the dudes you love.
