living life as you dream it

We got a chance to go to Maine for a mini-holiday again. It's my most favorite retreat on the East Coast. This year we even had the fun company of our friends from Houston. It was their first time in Maine and we couldn't have asked for lovelier weather to show them around. We woke up every morning to the sunrises over the ocean, walked the Marginal Way to gape at the amazing views at every turn, headed into town for some fresh steamy coffee and flaky croissants at Fancy That, browsed our favorite gift shops, picked up snacks and drinks at the Village Food Market, and munched on delicious lobsters in melted butter. Life is oh so good in Maine!

I found this beautiful art piece at Art & Soul, one of the cutest art galleries in Ogunquit. Every time we're in town, we make a stop at the colorful and gorgeous Art & Soul. This time, I asked one of the shopkeepers where these beautiful artworks came from, and she happily said they're by artists all over the U.S. and the New England area. This made me think immediately of my talented sister. She should sell her beautiful whimsical artworks to quaint galleries like this one! Mmmm ... mental note ... remember to tell my sister.

Hi Sarah,

My daughter discovered your blog and told me about it. We too love Ogunquit and have vacationed there for many years. I love to watch your slide show of the Art and Soul Gallery when I get homesick for Maine. It really takes me there. We usually stay at the Beachmere Inn on the Marginal Way. I love your photographs. Perhaps you'd like to see some of my photos of Ogunquit on my blog. Although I am not a professional photographer, I think you will enjoy them. My blog also shows some of my artwork that is carried by the Art and Soul Gallery.

Thank you for your site. It's a very special place for a lover of the beautiful place by the sea.

I hope you post more often. I would definitely keep looking.
