Venice, Italy or Rockwall, Texas? Who knew that this cute little place existed? Nick’s company does a summer retreat every year outside of Dallas. This year, we stayed right on the lake in Rockwall at the Hilton. It was a gorgeous hotel with a big pool and a view of the lake. This cute little lighthouse was out behind it, so of course we went and explored.
At night, we did a dinner cruise out on the lake, which departed from this little dock. It was so fun! We watched the sunset, ate, talked with Nick’s friends, & listened to country music. It was such a fun experience.
So I’m linking my outfit down below. I love my new hat! ? …and I’ll probably be wearing it a ton. Hope y’all have a great Sunday. We are off to church to teach our little 7-8 year olds! ?
Not only was it my first time in Maine, but it was my first time eating lobster!! Okay, we had some lobster on our honeymoon, but it was already cracked. I seriously didn’t even know it was so much work to get to the meat, so you can see why I was surprised when they brought over a bib and plate of tools. ? It wasn’t my fav food in the world, but I feel like it is part of the Maine experience. Plus, these little suckers are so photogenic. ?
We saw the most photographed light house in the world in Portland, ME! Then we headed over to the Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth. And I’m so glad we got a lobster Christmas ornament before we left, so we will always remember our little Maine trip.
Today, we explored Vermont! I didn’t get quite as many cool photos, but Vermont is absolutely breathtaking. The leaves are starting to change, we saw a black bear, we ate raspberry chocolate pancakes with legit maple syrup, and we visited Joseph Smith’s birthplace. It has been a beautiful day with family.
Anyways, hope you’ve loved our photos! We are falling in love with this place.
