A Lake Martin Home: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
When we think about the years we’ve spent on and around Lake Martin, we’re struck with how blessed we are to live here. Lake Martin has touched our lives and has been a part of hundreds of thousands of our memories—from the smallest moments like a glass of wine shared during a sunset to the grandest events like family weddings—Lake Martin has been the backdrop for it all.
The holidays and the dawn of a new year always brings upon reflection, and this year is no different. We truly believe living here, surrounded by the lake and sharing it with our friends and family, is the gift that keeps on giving. In the words of Dorothy, “There is no place like home.”
Today, we’re sharing a few of our favorite Lake Martin memories with you, and if you have lake Martin memories of your own, please share them in the comments. Nothing would make us happier than to hear why our home is as special to you as it is to us.
When thinking about my Lake Martin memories, it would be hard for me to narrow down to just one becauseI have many memories on this lake. When I think about those memories, I recall my son’s first time on a kneeboard when he was 5 years old. I remember the feeling of jumping out of the back of the boat and sitting him up on the board for the first time. I remember my daughter’s birthday parties. One year she got a waterslide, and the girls went off that slide until almost midnight before we made them come inside for the day. I think about our golden retriever, Sunny, fishing off the steps at the end of the dock for hours under sunlight. I recall watching my grandson get up on a wakeboard and surfing behind the boat for the first time, much like his dad’s kneeboarding experience above. But most recently, I think about grabbing some wings from Chucks, chasing the sunset and watching it disappear into the horizon. All of these things are special moments for me, and that’s what makes Lake Martin so special. It doesn’t have to be a huge moment; it’s the little ones that are equally as memorable.
My favorite memory of Lake Martin is my wedding day. I married my husband, Bryant, on a beautiful day in March on Lake Martin. The weather was perfect, and the scenery was gorgeous. Flowers were perfectly placed to complement the beautiful backdrop of Lake Martin. It felt like a fairytale as I walked down the aisle (which coincidentally was also a dock) to my husband. Lake Martin will always hold a special place in my heart, especially the date of March 24, 2018.
If you’re thinking about making a lifetime of your own Lake Martin memories, we’d love to hear from you. In the meantime, happy holidays! Enjoy making memories this holiday season.
