"Waking Up Lakeside"
After 26 years, my parents are selling the home they designed, had built and raised our family in. I want to get them a song that will help them reflect on the memories this home helped create as well as prepare them for the next phase in their life. They bought an empty lot and my mother drew up the plans for the house by hand on notebook paper. She gave them to an architect, who said he could build the house with little modification. The house was completed in 1990, and we lived there until this month, when my parents, after 15 long months on the market, finally sold it. They are moving up to our lake house on in Wisconsin permanently.
