I took these photos a few weeks ago when I was home in Maine ( you can read the rest of the posts here + here), where I had a nice long weekend of great food, much needed relaxation, and fun with friends and family. One of the days, Geoff and I went to McLoon’s Lobster Shack in Spruce Head which is just 10-15 minutes from Rockland and Owls Head. If you’re in Camden, it’s also nearby. I’ve grown up going to lobster shacks and worked at one in high school as a summer job. Going to a lobster shack when you’re in Maine is something that must be done, hands down. To me, I’ve always felt like there’s something so much more authentic about eating lobster on a wharf, rather than in a fancy restaurant with lobster juice up to my elbows. However, that’s my opinion.
I hope you guys had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! It was pretty low key over here. I stayed in Boston this weekend which was so nice after three weekends in a row being jam packed. Sunday was freezing and raining in Boston, but then Monday was so gorgeous I dreamed of it being like that here year round. We had lunch outside at Tatte (a local favorite… you must go if you’re in Boston) and walked the Charles River Reservation parkway. If you’re looking to get outside, it’s a great walk to do (also makes a great running loop). It was hard to not get sentimental about the last weekend of summer, but I keep trying to remind myself that just because the last weekend of summer is over, doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the nice days that are sure to come. One of my favorite bloggers, Liz from Pure Joy Home had the best talk about this on her Instagram Stories and it was exactly what I needed. So remember – just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you can’t find the good in the little things and make the warm days special. Now let’s get excited for fall 😉 .
THE BEST OF THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND SALES I hope you guys are gearing up to have yourselves a fun Labor Day Weekend! We’re keeping it pretty casual over here and are staying in town to spend time with friends. We’ve been traveling the past couple weekends in a row, so it feels more relaxing […]
WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER IGNORE YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH HISTORY + WHY I’M CELEBRATING TODAY I debated sharing this because to be honest, I didn’t know if any of you would actually care about reading something like this. Today’s post is a little different from what I normally write about, but I think this is far […]
