The most adorable goodbye to 2014


Hello, friends!

Hoping that you all had an awesome Christmas and are celebrating a festive New Year’s Eve. We have been soaking up every bit of family time possible here in Machias before we return to the woods.

I had to take a minute and share a few images that will be sure to make you smile. I heard that this guy was out relaxing while the tide was going down on the Machias river. I rushed downtown and stepped out on the bank. He was cute enough to begin with, but when he turned to wave, I had to hold back the giggles so I could keep the camera still. Posing so perfect, and giving me enough time to get a couple of good shots, it felt like he was happy that I stopped and noticed. Sounds silly? Maybe a little. Or maybe he was reminding us all to slow down, stop, and watch for the little things in 2015.

I grew up in Downeast Maine but have recently relocated to the North Woods. I live in Clayton Lake where I am a stay at home Mom to two beautifully wild little boys and wife to a Maine State Game Warden. I am a lover of the simple things in life...a good book, a song, a rainy day, a bowl of white popcorn, etc. I have a slight obsession with all things food. Love cooking it, eating it, looking at it, smelling it, reading about it, etc. I am a firm believer that life is what you make it.
