::lake lemon::

lake lemon is an integral part of the wiley family.

for as long as i have known ryan, their entire family has been invited to tim and jana's lake cottage each summer.

and without fail, they all come for a beautiful weekend of family togetherness.  

when ryan and i started dating in high school, they so graciously allowed me to start coming to these awesome family weekends.  and i quickly realized that the lake weekend is something that sets the wiley family apart and makes them so special.  they move mountains to be together for this weekend and it is a huge priority for every person in the family.  and once they are all together, the love and generosity abounds.

this year, we were able to attend the reunion and we were so very blessed to be there.

the kids were showered in love and it was so wonderful to see them out on the lake doing the things that ryan grew up doing every summer.  it was good for their souls...and mine.

thank you so much, tim and jana for so graciously hosting us this year!  it was a weekend of creating beautiful memories!

and thank you so much, kathy, for helping us to get there!
