maine & one other little thing.

The past few weeks have been brimming with new experiences.

Exhibit 1:

The rocky Maine coast on an unbelievably cool August day. Really–I did not know August days could require a jacket. It was dreamy.

Exhibit 2:

Old seaside towns with harbors full of sailboats. The differences between towns along the Atlantic ocean in the northern part of the country and the ones in the south are striking. It feels like you could not possibly be gazing out at the same body of water that you frolic in off the Florida coast.

Exhibit 3:

Summiting Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. Exhausting and beautiful.

Exhibit 4:

Oh, that? Well, yes, that is a tiny human growing in my uterus. Surprise!
