Lakeside at Lidemoki (Simple Stories Summer Fresh)
I'm feeling a bit nostalgic lately. I've been sorting through "older" photos and getting them, and the memories behind them, onto scrapbook pages. My parents bought a lake house in NH when I was an early teen. My Dad affectionately named it Lidemoki Lodge (Lidemoki stands for the first two letters in each of his girls' names). He later built a tree house on the property for his grandchildren and named it using the first two letters of their names as well. With my Dad's passing a year and a half ago, we had a tough decision to make — could our four families afford to buy the house and keep it in the family for the next generation? Unfortunately the answer was no. We spent a lot of time there and the memories we made during that time will make us smile as we look back, take them out, dust them off, and share them with our children.
