I had originally planned to recap our adventures in Maine on the blog before our cruise trip. Obviously, that didn’t happen. I’ve been torn, not sure where to begin with trying to put my experience into words.
Taking pictures and editing them? That comes easy to me when I work on blog posts… The writing part? Not so much especially when the posts are “personal, personal” as apposed to “surface personal”.
And Maine? Maine was personal, personal.
Our trip was so much more than just about unplugging/getting back in touch with nature. The focus of our time in Maine was centered around family. As such, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that the majority of the photos I took were of people, not necessarily places. (Not enough photos of people/family if you ask me tho.. But that just means I’ll have to make up for it when we visit again next summer.)
So while I think more on what exactly it is I want to say about our trip to narratively support the plethora of photos taken, here are a few postcards from Maine to hold you over in the meantime. Hope you enjoy. :)

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. – John Steinbeck
^^ Pretty much how I feel about Maine whenever I visit… You don’t take a trip to Maine, Maine takes you on a trip.
