"Mainer"

There is some validity to this {verb} "Mainer" and I'm beginning to understand it. Every time I've had a work related event in Maine, as that's the only reason I've visited Maine in the past years, I am so pleasantly surprised by the kindness.  

People are helpful, friendly, pretty down to earth, they seem organic, and like they have a different appreciation for life. I love all the Chevys and Fords I see, especially the ones hauling vintage campers like the 60's & 70's style teardrop made by Airstream. It seems people flock to Maine for their love of nature and the land. To slow down and take a fresh breath of green air. 

For those folks residing in Maine, the ones I've met hold true to my now definition of a "Mainer" . Kind, natural, polite, lovers of the land. Even though I live in Massachusetts, I feel like I'm PART "Mainer". 

And how would we define a "massachusettser"???? Hmmmmm that's a blog for a rainy day.

Any day now

Finally today the birds were chirping, the sun was shining, and I even caught a glimpse of something green in the distance. Everyone was happy too which is a rarity in these parts.  

Any day now I'm ready to wake up to spring here to stay. And the bustle of summer to be back... Most people start planning a trip to the Cape...visiting friends in  Hyannis perhaps? If so, here's the perfect gift: a custom chart pillow.

#whereiwanttobe

I love California. Specifically Southern California. Every town on that coast that I've visited, I've fallen in love with. This one in particular, Laguna Beach. I love everything about it. From the salty air and surfers ;) to the little vegan stand and cool coffee houses. 

As I look out my window while the snow falls sideways, I think how awesome it would be to have an Airstream, stock it full of my Not For Navigation chart and map collection of Southern California towns and hit the road selling with my 2 Larry's and our 2 Peke pups. Thus, #whereiwanttobe
