Oh, hi — I'm back!
We had an amazing trip to Maine, it honestly exceeded both of our expectations (my only expectation was basically just "LOBSTER"). The weather was hot and gorgeous, the food was divine, and we got to relax and have a perfect summer trip. We spend most of our time in Kennebunkport, where we stayed in a family-run inn right on the ocean, and took day trips to Portland and Ogunquit to explore a bit more.

Maine was charming, beautiful, and totally delicious. I would go back in a heartbeat. We really loved Kennebunkport—although it was definitely a popular vacation spot, it was much less crowded than Ogunquit and felt a little smaller and more charming. Although many of the shops are pretty knick-knacky, there were a few that we absolutely loved—Daytrip Society and Spaces—that reminded us a lot of Cleveland's Room Service and the former Dredger's Union. We spent most of our days at the beach or biking around town, and most of our night walking up and down the beach with a bottle of wine. It was so relaxing and I miss the ocean already.
Thanks for hanging in there while I was gone (and tolerating all of my Instagram photos). It was so nice to enjoy summer while it's still here. How do you plan to spend the last weeks of summer?
