Our trip to Maine (and going on a vacation during the pandemic), plus a birthday recap, a few little love notes to the things I loved most around the internet this week, and all of the best Labor Day Weekend sales to shop right now!
Happy Labor Day weekend!! We’re currently at my parents’ house on the coast in Maine and let me tell you, it has been SO NICE to get away. Between the big move and the even bigger pandemic, things have been weird, and busy, and also kind of non-stop.
We honestly doubted whether we should even take this trip. Although our place in Maine is just a 3 hour drive from Boston, with all of the Covid restrictions, we were definitely worried about the logistics of getting to Maine, eating, getting around, etc. We’re still pretty much staying close to home while here, not eating at restaurants, not shopping, etc., but once we were tested and cleared, and knew there were several great local places up by our home in Maine that do takeout well, we felt confident in making the trip by car. SUCH a good decision.
We’ve stayed close to home, only going on a few short drives up and down the coast. But we’ve had plenty of unbelievable yummy takeout lobster rolls and a whole lot of laughs. I celebrated my birthday on the first and it was low key and sweet. In fact, hubby even baked a cake!
I’ve also tried my hand at embroidery this trip (this embroidery starter kit is awesome and makes things super easy for a beginner) and I’ve read two books. Oh, and because I’m apparently a crazy person I decided we should tackle potty training Emme, 2, this trip as well. It’s been so interesting.

I’ll keep on sharing what we’re up to throughout the long weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! So how about you? Any exciting holiday weekend plans?
