Maine Trip: Part 1

(source)

I decided the best way to share this trip with you guys is as a series of posts. My boyfriend, his mother, and I stayed in a beautiful cabin on the water for a little over a week.We ate tons of lobster and drank a lot of local sodas. Exploring so many places along the coast was amazing and an experience I'll never forget.

We flew into New Hampshire on Friday very late and spent the night at a hotel there. My favorite part of the hotel was the 24/7 coffee(haha). The next day we drove to our cabin in Maine. The drive was so scenic, and we made tons of stops along the way.

One of the stops was for my boyfriend's mom at an adorable local yarn convention. There were so many cool hand-made things there, including soft sweaters, and beautiful soaps. My favorite part, however, were all of the alpacas, lambs, and bunnies that you could pet. 

We also stopped at a Maritime museum on our way to the cabin. It was comprised of several fishing houses that were so rustic and beautiful. They had tons of old boating paintings and artifacts as well as some actual boats.

I don't have any photos of it, but that cabin was adorable. We were right on the water and had our own dock as well. I loved being able to step outside in the mornings with the beautiful view pictured above.

Long time, no see!

Hello again all, I am back from my long absence! I had to take a break due to school and focus on my studies, but I am so excited to be back with you guys! During my absence I have gotten to go on tons of adventures and try new things (and of course studied) which I will be sharing with you. Some of which are kayaking, a couple of trips, and I also cut my hair short!

I spent my spring break visiting family and with my boyfriend, which was TONS of fun. We hiked, shopped in antique stores, visited the zoo (pictured above), explored caves, made milkshakes, and tons of other fun things. It was very relaxing having a break from school and being around people who cared about me.

One of my very best friends got engaged and married! It was so much fun getting to see her go through the wedding process(and seeing her pick out her gorgeous dress). I was so flattered to be chosen as her Maid of Honor. She had the most beautiful ceremony and I loved getting to be there for her on her special day. The photo above is us at her bridal shower.

I was fortunate enough to go on the most beautiful trip to Maine (I am saving those photos for the upcoming posts). I have never experienced anything like it. We went hiking almost every day, as well as made several road trips. I saw TONS of lighthouses (and chipmunks) and I can't wait to share it with you guys!

This is my sister and I at my sororities Founder's Day brunch. For those of you that don't know, Founder's Day is a huge deal for sororities and we usually have a luncheon. We invite the important women in our lives as our guests to show what our sisterhood is about. This was my first year being able to attend and I absolutely loved it! Plus the food was on point...


To end with a laugh... This last semester was extremely stressful, so I loved seeing jokes! These were my favorite and I probably laughed at them every day during finals week. The very last photo is my crazy kitty cat, Smokey, spending the day at work with me. If you couldn't tell from his expression, he was thrilled.
