Don’t know what to do this weekend? I can help! Whether you are already a fellow Mainer, or someone looking to plan out a weekend getaway to Maine, this blog will give you some ideas on things to try, activities available, or maybe remind you of a few favorites to revisit. There are so many amazing things to see and do in Maine.
Are you nostalgic? While I tend to focus on the future, sometimes it’s still fun look back on the past, which is one reason I love memory keeping. Some of my nostalgia probably has to do with growing up extremely happy in Southern Maine. So many of my fondest memories are tied deeply with my childhood experiences here in Maine.
Do you like a night out? My twenties were spent hanging out with friends, enjoying spontaneous get togethers, exploring more of Maine, and heading into Portland for a night on the town. While those days are past, I still love checking out the latest openings or circling back to a favorite place, and I’m always up for a spontaneous adventure.
Are you looking for some family fun? My husband and I started our family while we were living down in Massachusetts, but my love of Maine never left, and we bought a camp on a lake close to Portland. For many years, we truly were spending our Weekends in Maine.
My Life Now
Do you want to know what life is like in Maine now? About a decade ago, we did some soul searching and realized that we wanted to be in Maine full time. We wanted to raise our family here and put down roots so we made the move back to Maine full-time.
What makes a place special?
- The memories you make.
- The fun activities available.
- The ways you can connect with nature.
- The local food and restaurant scene.
- The overall pace that life moves.
- The people who share your love for the place.
For me, and my passion for Maine, it is all of these things and more. It is how everything comes together to create an amazing quality of life. There is something powerful about connecting with a place. I know you will love Maine as much as I do.
