Each Friday during the month of October, a member of The Lakeside Life Team is sharing their favorite Fall memory on Smith Lake. This week, Partner & Creative Director, Haley May, shares her favorite Fall memory on Smith.
Haley has the ability to wave her fingers in the air, and like a magic potion, creativity pours from them onto whatever project she is working on. During the day, Haley is a real estate agent with Lakeside Real Estate, so her take on Smith Lake is extremely valuable to our team! She also brings a background in internet marketing and a degree from the University of Alabama, so needless to say, Haley is truly a shining star to our team. She and her husband, Justin, have twin boys; Cash & Camber. The May family is loads of fun, and they live in a Smith Lake community in Cullman County.
HALEY'S FALL MEMORY:
Being known as a lover of Smith Lake, people are often shocked when they learn that Fall is my favorite time of the year. But, once you have experienced the Fall here, you quickly learn why.
Fall is for family. From boat rides viewing the changing leaves, to smores by the fire, the season is even more beautiful in the reflection of the water. For us, it seems like the cooler weather puts some brakes on our fast-paced life, and we find ourselves focusing on one another around a campfire, or underneath the softest blankets for movie night.
I have pondered for weeks trying to pinpoint my favorite Fall memory. It is so hard to choose just one, so I decided to just choose my most recent one. We are fortunate enough to live in the most beautiful neighborhood with the sweetest people. When we bought the house, I was instantly excited for Halloween because I knew it would be amazing living here. This year, we started a new tradition. All the kids in the neighborhood gathered together for a Trick or Treat hayride.
Living in the country my entire life, I always dreamed of going door to door in a neighborhood trick-or-treating. But in the country, there was always miles between each stop. This year I was able to experience that awesome sense of community, with neighbors, with my own kids. Justin, Cash, Camber and I had a blast on the hayride and going door to door. Granted we ended up with enough candy to last us a lifetime, and the boys' sugar high will likely be the product of a few gray hairs, but it was an experience I will never forget. I look forward to many more years starting traditions and making memories with Justin and our boys.
See you lakeside!
