Maine Girls



It's a happy coincidence that one of my BFFs lives right where my husband's family lives.  This day with her felt like such freedom.  We were eating at The Blue Spoon and if you are in the neighborhood someday you should be too (best BLT in the land, though watch out for the crusty crusts, they'll get your mouth).

This small human is so sweet.  He is a giver of hugs around the legs, a kisser of just about anything that will hold still, a utterer of unprovoked "I love you, Mama" sayings.  There's piss and vinegar in there too, don't get me wrong.  Kid bit a hole through his lip this morning horsing around (blerg) and we hear our fair share of 'noooooooo.'  All of a piece.

In about three weeks this will be our front yard.  These hot nights find us on the couch mentally planting fruit trees and berry bushes and wondering what the fireflies will look like in all that space.  We are painting and packing and trying to be patient.

We're back from Maine.  We loved every minute of it and as always I leave with a sense that there's a home for us there.  We might not ever live in it, but it's there.  We love our people there so much and then there's that wild coastline and incredible ocean air and food to die for.


We were there for some milestones.  B and I walked our wedding field on our fourth anniversary.  It's every bit as beautiful as we remember and there is powerful magic for us in that spot.  Four years full of such riches, I am so grateful for them.

And in the department of riches our small human turned two.  Our family there turned out for an all-day celebration that let me just say ended up in a pile of tickle wrestling with Osh's grandmother on the bottom.  Good times.

And speaking of Osh's gran, those two were thick as thieves.  A real pleasure to see them honing their inside jokes and generally cracking themselves up all day.

More to come.
