9 Signs You Are Meant to Own a Lake Home
There is a certain breed of people that love that 'up north, headed to the cabin' feeling. The feeling of a Friday afternoon with the car packed, drinks in the cooler, hitting the open road. Well, let's be honest - probably not an open road, given the road construction everywhere - BUT, when you're headed to the lake, even a little traffic can't bring you down. If you've had that feeling, this list is for you.
1. Of the 10,000 lakes, you've been to half of them.
2. When someone says, drop me a line, you immediately think they are referring to fishing.
3. It's hard to make plans with friends, because you "might be at the lake." Don't they understand?
4. You take better care of your boat than your car.
5. You own a bumper sticker that says, "I'd rather be at the lake."
6. Your children took swimming lessons at 6 months old so you wouldn't miss a beat during lake season.
7. When the temperature hits 40 degrees, you start sporting your flip flops.
8. Your dog has a lifejacket that cost more than most people spend on their children's car seat. You can't put a price on water safety.
9. When the mail comes you cross your fingers in the hopes that no one has invited you to a party on the weekend.
If you can relate to any of these, you should probably start looking to buy.

5 Ways to Dress Up Your Deck this Summer (and Fall!)
The possibilities are endless with an outdoor living space so we have rounded up some simple, budget-friendly ways to dress up your deck so that you can enjoy it to the fullest.
1. Go for the green
Add greenery like these arborvitae to create a living privacy screen and add interest to your space.
2. Pillows, pillows, everywhere
Pillows bring the indoors out, making your space feel comfy and cozy. They can tie in color too.
3. Light it up
Outdoor lighting comes in many options. Solar path lights, hanging lanterns or globe string lights. The opportunities are endless to light up your evenings on the deck.
4. Portable fireplaces
A portable fireplace, chimnea or fire table can extend the use of your deck well into the fall months. Store it inside over the winter months to keep it looking great.
5. Punch up the color
Focus on one or two colors, either in cushions, rugs or pillows. This helps create an inviting, fun space.
Treat your others as you would like to be treated. The golden rule applies to kayaks too! We have shared a list of friendly reminders when caring for your kayak during paddling season.
