"No one can go back, but everyone can go forward. And tomorrow, when the sunrises, all you have to say to yourself is; I am going to think of this day as the first day of my life." - Paulo Coelho (at Graham Family Lake House - Lake Guntersville, AL)

"All this feels strange and untrue. And I won’t waste a minute without you. My bones ache, my skin feels cold. And I’m getting so tired and so old. The anger swells in my guts. And I won’t feel these slices and cuts. I want so much to open your eyes, ‘Cause I need you to look into mine." - Snow Patrol - "Open Your Eyes" (at Graham Family Lake House - Lake Guntersville, AL)
"Maybe there’s something you’re afraid to say, or someone you’re afraid to love, or somewhere you’re afraid to go. It’s gonna hurt. It’s gonna hurt because it matters." - John Green (at Graham Family Lake House - Lake Guntersville, AL)
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring two pence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it." - C.S. Lewis (at Graham Family Lake House)
This is the place my family and I have called home for the past 30 years. It is now on the market because my parents are planning to retire to our lake house in Guntersville. It breaks my heart to see the for sale sign in our yard. So this past weekend I went there to take some photos for us to have. We all have so many wonderful memories from our years living there. I have lived in many other places during my life… This house is the only place I felt truly at home. I will miss this place more than I could ever express in words. Most importantly… “A house is made of brick and mortar, but a home is made by the people who live there.” - M.K. Soni (at Graham Family Home - Huntsville, AL)
