Maine: The Way Vacation Should Be

I had a wonderful vacation that left me with a week's worth of blissful memories. 

Signs of a great vacation: 

Slight sunburn, lots of sleep with no alarm clocks, snuggling, indulging in whoopie pies and a Boston shake, a breakfast picnic at a lighthouse, shopping at The Happy Yogi and at the outlets in Freeport, swimming, taking the canoe for a spin, spending the afternoon playing with an adorable little kid, finishing a ton of pleasure reading, no internet or tv, laughter, Pictionary and Scrabble, the Lobster Shack, finding out you are halfway decent at ping pong, home cooking, the feeling of sand under your bare feet, feeling your stress melt away, car rides, exploring and falling in love with new places like this one, thunder and lighting outside while you are curled up under a blanket inside, stumbling across a farmer's market, a few glasses of wine, a new yoga class, falling even more in love then you thought possible with your boyfriend, exceptionally yummy meals at new restaurants like this one and absolutely not wanting it to end so you don't have to go home.
