Weekend in Acadia

This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending my 4th of July in Acadia, Maine. I had never been, but a group of friends and I decided to Air bnb it — and I’m so glad we did! We stayed in the most darling little farm house in Sedgwick, about an hour south from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The home owners were so warm and generous, offering fresh produce and eggs from the farm during our stay. Ripe strawberries, blueberries, chives, chard— the works.

Friday night and Saturday day were pretty rainy, so we went antiquing in Ellsworth. Eventually the clouds parted to the most breathtakingly orange sunset below. On Sunday the weather couldn’t have been more ideal, so we headed out to the National Park. If you guys ever have the chance to go, you need to do the Beehive Summit hike. It’s a little nerve wrecking as you scale along the edge of massive cliffs, gripping onto iron bars planted into the rocks, but it was so worth it. The views are unreal and you feel on top of the world in every way possible. There’s also an awesome looking beach in the park that we really wish we had our suits for!

… and we obviously ate lots o’ lobster.

I stumbled upon this image the other day and fell in love – it’s gorgeous and so appropriate for today! As you may have guessed, I’ve been pretty busy (and a tad stressed) getting things together for my trip, but I’m trying to just let go and let it happen (not so easy for a control freak) – and it’s going surprisingly well! But I am ready to get going…so Ciao, friends! I hope you all have fantastic couple of weeks while I’m gone – but first and foremost a great weekend! Check out our links and enjoy this beautiful Friday…xo G&M

cct // Just the cutest video about taking portraits of chickens…

rkv // I’ve been finding myself having a slight lack of sleep these days (which I’m sure has nothing to do with Pinterest), so I found this little beauty tutorial super helpful!

cct // Umm yes, I definitely want her job! Also, how did I not know this series existed??

rkv // Somehow my crazy friend Xiao talked me into doing the Narragansett 10k in July. I’m pretty awful at running, breathing has always been the most difficult part. If you guys have any tips I’d love to hear ’em!

cct // Wait, whattt?! I hope my hair is long enough!

rkv // I’ve been craving quiche for like a month. For some reason I haven’t gotten around to making any yet, but this deep dish recipe may be happening this weekend.

cct // Fingers crossed that the weather will be this good when we stop by Cinque Terre (first photo)!

rkv // I must admit, my house is a little gross right now. Four girls in one abode, all with full time jobs, things get a little dusty! For once I don’t have a much planned this weekend, so it may finally be time to crack down and deep clean.
