“If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.” — Victoria Erickson
Can y’all believe another lake season has come to an end? I can’t. It seems every year the season gets shorter and shorter. One of the best highlights of the season was Fireworks at Flat Rock. It was great to see so many people come together for a common purpose. It took a lot of work and money to pull off that event and we can’t wait to see what happens next year!
With summer over, lots of people have packed it in when it comes to the lake, but let me tell you...the fall is an amazing time to enjoy Lake Wedowee, especially when the lake level doesn’t drop to quick. The fall is a calmer laid back scene with fewer boats on the water... less noise and for sure less fireworks! (I mean really what is it with people on the lake LOVING to shoot fireworks! Regardless, we made it through another summer with a lifetime of memories and fishtales that will grow larger than life.
We still have a few months left to enjoy 2018, and then we have fantastic plans in the works for 2019. We hope you enjoy our look back on some special moments from Lake Wedowee this season and be sure to join us again real soon!

Can you imagine our surprise... When we discovered Santa loves Lake Wedowee as much as we do??? Well, we happened to see him recently and begged for a story. Well, we got one and we hope all the boys and girls in the Lake Wedowee area enjoy the tale as much as we did. Be sure to be on your best behavior especially not that we know, you may run into Santa while he spends time at hi favorite place away from the North Pole!
So if you have been following along with my letters from the editor this year, you may have noticed I have been on a Happiness journey this year. It started as a self-discovery lesson, but has turned into a great big ole journey that I am truly loving. Mindset is a funny thing. We all grew up hearing, you are the company you keep and as I have gotten older that is the absolute truth. People say it a lot of different ways but mindset plays a big part of it. Here is a little lesson on mindset... We all have that person in our lives that is a Grumpy Gus... or a Negative Nellie or a Sad Sam... (No offense to anyone named Gus, Nellie or Sam). Have you
ever spent time with that person and your thoughts turned grumpy, negative or sad. And on the other hand, have you hung out with a person that is confident, happy and self assured? Well more often that not, you become a version of the people you spend the most time with... I saw it in myself for the past few years and as I break the chains of negativity, I am realizing that there is a big ‘ole positive happy world out there waiting for me to explore and enjoy it. I choose to be happy and I encourage you to make up your mind to do the same! It is the best choice I have made this year!
"Folks are usually about as happy as they make their mind up to be."
