A Weekend in Maine

We celebrated the Labor Day weekend up in Maine with Darren’s family. It’s fun watching all the cousins playing together and letting them run a little wild outside at Grammie and Papa’s house in the woods. We live off a busy road here so even though I let my kids play outside a lot, it’s just a different feel up in Maine among the woods and pastures, mountains and lakes. Everything feels slower and quieter (helped I’m sure, by the fact that my phone doesn’t even really work up there).

I have a mound of dirty laundry to unpack and wash. Everyone is just a bit tired and out of sorts and it didn’t feel genuine at first to share a bunch of photos of smiling faces when that is not at all how things look today.IMG_20180903_131137_453.jpg

  1. Buongiorno a tutti voi….. Good morning to you all…… Always a pleasure to read your welcomed, refreshing, true to reality blog… Life always has meaning to it when one can depict what exactly they are feeling at any given moment, and be willing to share it all with others. I am a realist and just simply mix with those who can express themselves with a wonderful openness. Bless you all ! Bobby and famiglia in London. Oh glad you loved your trip to London………. Ciao Bobby
