  1. Sounds like a wonderful summer! Love all of the pictures!

    1. Thanks Julia! I am blessed with how it all played out! I can only hope for an ever better 2015!

  2. I went to Maine as a kid, Bar Harbor, but it feels like an entire lifetime ago. I'm dying to go back! Looks like you had a fun and busy summer :)

    1. Maine was really beautiful! It was a busy but fun summer!

  3. Looks like a fun three months. I love fireworks, especially at the 4th of July!

    I've always wanted to visit Maine, it looks beautiful!

    Stopping by from the linkup!

  4. Congrats on the promotion! Your Maine trip looks like so much fun!

    Stopping by from the link up :)

  5. Love the idea of a me-date! I often feel funny when I am out shopping by myself (probably because I usually have at least one kid with me)- but just turn your thinking around about it a bit and it is something awesome. You had the best seats in the house for sure for the fireworks, so fun!

  6. Love the cake... It's always fun to stay in hotels, especially brand new ones :). Congrats on the promotion! and love the fireworks pictures.
