• The truth behind our family getaway

    Earlier this summer I booked my family of five an Airbnb in Downeast Maine to explore more of the state we love, and areas we have never been to.

  • Maine Inspired

    This summer is so strange. I was worried that with no camps, no clinics, no structure what-so-ever, that this summer would be a total $hit show.

  • Why moms love stationery...

    It's true. At least the women I know, and their moms. We love stationery. We especially love when it's our own personalized stationery, even more. But what is it about a new notepad, a beautiful pen, a beautiful set of stationery, or the perfect greeting card that makes us so happy?  I can reca... View Post
