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!

Fort Knox and Swan Lake State Park, last week.

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!

Mag and Maine Love

Going to try to smash the last few weeks together in a post.  You ready?

We were featured in one of my favorite magazines.  Holy Moly, so fun to see!  It’s totally worth the cost, you guys!  Souvenir’s back issues are worth the buy as well. Amazing stuff; such an honor to be included among the awesomeness in this mag.

We’ve had some wild and wooly weather; from hot to foggy to rainy; it’s been an interesting summer. :)  Caught these on the road this week; foggy pictures are my fave.  First one is Wiscasset and second is just past Fairfield.  Not too terribly bad for phone pics!

Ryan and Jack were in a parade last Saturday, and today is their last day of Scout Camp.  They’ve had just a little bit of fun. ;-)

Having a summer full of family has been great!!

And last but not least; I’m trying to find 50 lovers-of-Maine: we turned our chalkboard poster into a t-shirt.  If we sell 50 within the next 9 days we will make a little money to help us get to the New England Trade Show this Sept: thought it would be a fun experiment! :)  Click here if you are interested, and thanks a million if you buy!

Ok, need to usher the boys out of the house; so glad I homeschool; don’t think I could take the stress of getting them out of the house in a timely matter every morning.  Ha!

Have an amazing weekend!!
