A Quick Hello From Vacationland, Maine

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that Charles and I (along with my brother, Gabe) are currently in Vacationland a.k.a. Maine. It’s been 3 years since I’ve visited this wonderful state where I spent my summers as a child and I couldn’t be more excited to be back visiting for the week. This trip also marks Charles’s first time visiting Maine and I think it’s safe to say that he is fast on his way to becoming a “maine-iac”.

We’re currently staying at my family’s cabin on a pond in the middle of the woods. The fresh air, proximity to water, lack of internet (currently typing from my Gramma’s place which has wi-fi), and overall basic lifestyle has been so damn rejuvenating (said the city girl).

The photos above are from yesterday when the boys went out to go fishing (#nofilter because no time to filter). I decided to stay on the dock and give them some male boding time while I wrote down what we’ve done so I can remember when it comes time to recap our adventures on the blog. I swear… the backlog of posts I have to write just keeps on growing and growing and growing haha.

Oooooop, Gramma’s just announced that supper is ready so I’ve got to go. Just wanted to check in, say hello and give a quick real time update from Maine! I’ll try to share more photos on the gram whenever I service. Until then… xo, Setarra.

  • I might of died being so close to that creature with wings. I can’t do insects or bugs that fly. I just cant.

    • Awww not even a cute little dragonfly? They were everywhere in Maine.

    I miss that place so much enjoy it I remember it like yesterday when we all went there together.

    • I remember too Fina! Such good times :)

  • maine-iac. I love it.

    • My Aunt Margie mentioned the term in passing while we were hanging out last week and I thought the same exact thing, love it. :)

    Hey Setarra :)

    First of all, thanks for visiting my small blog ;) I got so excited to get those comments from you! Secondly, these pictures are so pretty – all woodsy and beautiful. I am totally pinning the first one on Pinterest, because I love it so much ;D.

    Man, your vacation sounds lovely, and I hope you and Charles have been having a super amazing time visiting your family! I know what you mean about the backlog of posts, my post list began to look like a whole lotta drafts and nothin’ else.

    • Hey Zoe! I always enjoy visiting your blog, your photos have such a vibrancy to them :) And Maine is so much more pretty in real life compared to the photos I shared. Like… If only I could’ve found a way to capture the feeling of the breeze coming off the water thennnnn these photos would have really done the scenery justice.

      Overall, our visit was so great! We’re back in Virginia now and already planning when we’ll return next summer :)

  • Ok, all your photos are awesome (as usual) but the one of the dragonfly is amazing! So detailed. You’re showing that DSLR who’s boss!

    • Thanks girl! I’m slowly experimenting around with going manual on my camera settings. This trip to Maine marked my first time using the DSLR camera in a couple of months… I had been using my iPhone because it was sooo much more convenient to lug around and not as heavy. Butttt I’m really glad I decided to bring the Canon with me for this trip because the photos are much crisper and more detailed :)

      • That makes total sense. I know me and I’d always leave it home too. For trips though, it’s definitely a great option.

    I appreciate the love you both have for life where your experiences together become the pen and paper in which to tell your story. It is a joy to see and fun to follow. Many blessings and hopeful adventures for the future… Looking forward to what’s next. – A friend of C’s (Nick).

    • Hi Nick! Thanks for stopping by. :) I’ve heard much about you from C and really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my blog. I’m sure we’ll be connecting soon. Until then. -SK
