wicked cool new england trip

Jeff and I took a trip to Maine and New Hampshire in mid-October. Geographically, the New England area is everything we love...mountains, ocean, lakes, rocky coastline. I am definitely dreaming of living there someday, but that's been a dream since I first visited as a kid. Maybe it's meant to be?

While we were there, we attended a family get-together and 90th birthday celebration for my Great Uncle Howard and Great Aunt Trudie (his wife)...this is the 3 of us together. I haven't seen them, or much of this side of the family, for 10 years, so it was a reunion I will definitely treasure, especially since Uncle Howard is the only one still living from my Grandma's generation. Also, my Uncle Don and Aunt Karen live in Maine, so we spent a lot of time with them. 

Here are some photo highlights of the trip:

We stayed in the White Mountains for a few days...

some views of Mt. Washington...

coastal Maine beachcombing...

so many snails!

eric carle is the cutest!

Just a little post to say I think Eric Carle is the cutest (I have the biggest crush). Have you seen his blog?  What I think is so sweet is that when I read his posts, I totally see "him" in his books. I mean, he writes a little account about his day and it sounds like a book...I love it. He has such a beautiful way of relating to the world that is so simple and wholesome and universal. What an inspiration to so many. What a difference just one person can make.
