Summer in Maine

And sometimes…you take a 7 month bloggy break.  And your website is woefully in need of an update, and you are thankful it hasn’t gone to the dogs because you had dozens of new “installs” when you finally logged in to the blasted thing!  Twitter and business FB page have fallen by the wayside.  Every possible PR thing you could ignore, you have.  And yet business is still really good…thankful!!

Brief history of life since January:

Winter, cold and snowy, too much so.

Spring, highly anticipating summer.

Summer…may it never end!!

The best decision we made back during income tax time was signing up for a Maine State Park Pass.  $70, and we had them take it out of our return.  Here is a brief pictoral summer diary, because I want to remember this summer forever.

Last of June, Early July…rented a house on MDI with mom and dad.  Drove home during a hurricane. :-)  It was a wonderful week…first true vacation in YEARS.

This was our lovely little house, set back in the woods.  Perfection.

Hilarious Family Photo on top of Cadillac.  We also greeted the sunrise at 4:45…well, mom, dad and I did. :)  It was so gorgeous and memorable!!

Beach at Seal Harbor.  We packed so much into this week, with a healthy dose of relaxation and sleeping in, too. :)

Bradbury Mountain State Park; hiked it with the boys.  Got lost on the way down.  :)  Ended up at Chipotles.  Yay!

Beech Hill near Camden, and Camden Hills State Park.  Beech Hill is a new favorite!  Must go!

Yesterday we made another run into Camden to drop off orders, and discovered the Endless Summer Flower Farm.  All I’ll say to that is…GO!  You won’t regret it!

So, healthy dose of adventuring, and we aren’t done yet.   The boys also went to Fairhaven Camp for a week!  Close to completing a couple of room renovations I’ll share soon…and an exciting new line of products for the shop! Whew!

Wishing you a fantastic week!
