Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

4th of July in Maine

I hope that you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! I escaped the city and headed home to Maine for the weekend. It was so nice to be back by the ocean and to spend the weekend with my immediate family, extended family (we are talking 3rd cousins!) and friends. I have gone to Maine every summer of my whole life, it is one of my favorite places in the whole world! 

We had a wonderful weekend, with a great mixture of summer activities and time to relax. We went out on the boat, to the farmer's market, to cocktail parties, went swimming and watched fireworks. Here are some of my favorite photos from the weekend.
