Paul Revere Statue Boston (2)

After Canada, we had a day at sea before our last stop in the beautiful and proud city of Boston. A measly eight hours in this city is not nearly enough, and I long to visit again someday soon. It’s a gorgeous city with such a rich history that I have an insatiable need to thoroughly explore. *sigh* I’ll admit it, I’m in love with Boston. Continue reading

Canada/New England Cruise Part 1 ~ Magnificent Maine

Baltimore

Four years ago, the husband and I hopped on a plane in Cleveland Ohio, landed in Baltimore Maryland, changed clothes in the airport restroom, hailed a taxi, and then got married in Federal Hill Park overlooking the city… all by noon.

Best. Day. Ever.

Filled with pure adrenaline, nerves, and most likely caffeine and sugar.

I have never regretted eloping. Never.

Going to weddings now just reinforces how awesome our decision was for us to essentially “run away and get married”. Continue reading

Wanderlust I Must ~ Portland, Maine At Twilight

This Spring Forward time change business is really messing me with this week. I think it’s also messing with one of our pups. Neither of us are sleeping well… at least not until the wee hours of the morning, and then we sleep in a little too late for my liking.

Blah.

I call this week a wash. Instead of daydreaming for one moment, how ’bout we daydream all week?

Portland Maine At Twilight

Is there any place more beautiful than a coastal city at twilight? The glow of the sun dipping below the horizon and the water reflecting the light of the lampposts can make even the smallest city look quite grand.

A lot of people retire to Florida or someplace warm, right? I see myself retiring to Maine… if not moving there sooner.

I love the vibe of several other New England states, but Maine has a mystique and an allure about it… no words can do it justice, I promise. You just have to visit to understand the appeal. Believe me, you’ll never want to leave.

And, it’s no surprise that a lot of authors, especially thriller writers, make the state their home.

Is there a place you visited that you thought, “I could really live here.”?

That place for me is Maine.

Someday, my precious. Someday.

Well, we’re having a very windy, wintry mix of a day here in central Ohio. It’s a good day to curl up with a book and a couple of pups, daydream of faraway places, or watch a good movie.

Happy Wanderlustin’.
