Home Sweet Home (ah but Maine sweet Maine!)

A long day of driving brought us home yesterday after two amazing weeks in Maine.

We sailed, we swam, we watched bald eagles fish. We visited the Farnsworth in Rockland, paying tribute to Andrew Wyeth. We played UNO and laughed hysterically and ate really fresh seafood.

But for the most part, we dedicated ourselves to taking it slow and keeping it simple, our only "splurge" was...time. I have found that for me, a constant stream of information and everything available 24 hours/day does not produce happiness, better children or creativity. In a way, its as though MORE (of everything and anything) stifles what is good and LESS allows it to surface. Ok...I think I'm onto something here.

My etsy shop will stay closed until August 12.

  1. Glad to hear that you just kicked back and relaxed.

    I completely agree on the less is more. :^) Hard to execute it sometimes, but it always has a positive effect.

  2. Relaxing vacation...sounds heavenly!

    I agree wholeheartedly with "less is more" and strive to strike a balance with the boys and myself.
