Lake Livingston Holiday

The holidays have become more sentimental for me. Perhaps it is the adding of another year, the adding of another child or another year that my dad is not with us. My mom is traveling overseas for Christmas so we decided to skip presents and gift ourselves with a long weekend at the lake. I…
