Have you ever been on a vacation & wished you could stay longer?
This year has been like an extended vacation for me. It’s my first year not to work full-time since Holden was 1 yr old.
It has truly been the best way to see Maine – river swimming in the summer, fire-building outside as the leaves change, hibernating for the winter in ‘Narnia’, and now watching the green & pink explode.
But the best part has been getting to know the people here. They live and think distinctly different than I’ve ever lived. They value things I have never known.
While moving back and forth across the country was an expensive way to experience this, I am so thankful for this year.
