And with that, the unofficial start to Autumn has come upon us. Labor Day weekend has come and gone and boy did I have a good one!
The weather was perfect! Hurricane Hermine hadn’t quite reached this far up north so the skies were clear and the sun was shining! I spent part of my weekend up in Kennebunkport, Maine enjoying the last glimpses of summer fun. By some beautiful alignment of everything wonderful in the world, I didn’t have to work all weekend! You can bet I took full advantage of the much welcomed time off!
The main reason I wanted to go to Kennebunkport wasn’t because I absolutely love Maine (I really do!) but because I found a great kayaking tour online that I was desperate to experience! My sister and I spent three hours kayaking around some islands before docking up on one to have a picnic by a lighthouse. It was a positively perfect experience!
Afterwards we grabbed some food in town, explored a bit, and of course grabbed a pound and a half of salt water taffy! As if I could be in Maine and not get salt water taffy!
The rest of my weekend wasn’t as adventurous, but was definitely still productive! I ran some much needed errands around town (future reference: the mall is seriously crowded Labor Day Weekend so avoid at all costs!). I finally got a basket to put all of the throw blankets I have at home into – goodbye pile of blankets in the corner of my room! Plus, I began the process of painting over some awful purple walls in my house! (I’ll spare you any images of this particular purple, just know that I hated it.)
The last bits of Hurricane Hermine finally hit Massachusetts yesterday which made for an extremely dreary first day back to work. I was so glad the yucky weather held out over the weekend though so I could get some last bits of adventuring done this summer! Next up: all things FALL!
