Me and the fam decided we needed some time to get our minds off work so we rented a car and started driving. Unfortunately, in Texas, that doesn't leave you with a lot of options considering it takes about 5 hours just to get out of the state itself. But I did some research and found out about a natural lake (since we don't have any in Texas...they're literally all man-made) in Arkansas called Lake Ouchita, in a town called Hot Springs. We only went for one night, but it was just the right amount of time. We ended up kayaking on the lake, first time ever. I'm just not realizing how sheltered of a life I've leaved...sheesh. Nonetheless, it was beautiful. A perfect 2-day getaway with my favorite people.
