Two weekends ago we spent some quality time with our old buddies in Old Lyme, Connecticut. Over the last couple of years our paths have taken us all to several different cities across the East Coast, so whenever we can manage big group hangouts, it’s always a blast. This year was nothing short of awesome — complete with lots o’ grilling, games, and goofballs. Take a looksie at some snap shots from our weekend retreat!
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.
As a fellow blogger you probably already know about Max Wagner. His work has been shown on many of our favorite LA blogs like Designlovefest, Oh Joy! & Emily Henderson – and you should know about him, because his work is so enjoyable! We’ve been fans for a couple years now, but we’re always drawn back to his work this time of year because it’s so summery!
He also does some non-summer themed work which is equally amazing —
