I am sorry to have been absent for a time....No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth, but it did feel like I visited heaven for a week!

Our family just returned from a week in Maine, one of our favorite places on the planet. We rented a new house to us, and were delighted with its charm and beautiful waterfront on a tidal cove.

The kids had a blast! Whenever the tide was in...we were out!

Have you ever been to Maine? I would love to hear about your experiences there....and if you haven't, you must go soon!

Our cottage was quaint, charming, and beautiful with its post and beam construction, and our hosts, Cathy and Rick, were very friendly & helpful.

I wish I could bring those cool and fresh evening breezes that carried the scent of cedar and pine home with me.

I guess the sweet memories will have to hold me for another year...hopefully enough time to work off all of those lobster rolls!
