Scotty's getting married!!!

My "little" cousin Scott (who's well over six feet now) is getting married today and I couldn't be more excited or happier for him!

Here we are when we were so little. Seriously, how cute can you get?

Here is the happy couple at our wedding almost two years ago. To the left is my other "little" cousin, Corey, the groom's younger brother.

I am so happy for them and excited to welcome Autumn to the family! The other super cool thing about their wedding and reception is the location. I kid you not, there is a path from the location to our road. So we're making sure to put some sneakers and flashlights in the car and we plan on walking home tonight! Fun!

Summer in Maine

This has been one of the absolute best summers in recent memory. Pat and I have been doing our best to soak it all in (despite demanding work schedules).

Today I had the pleasure of introducing Pat to a true love of mine. Sebago Lake. While I didn't technically grow up on this lake, my road did dead end at the lake. We also spent countless days at Cub Cove swimming, many days on the boat fishing and even some overnights at my friend's uncle's house.

Before today I don't think Pat understood my love affair with this lake. He gets it now. He totally gets it.

Today we drove around for three hours on the boat just soaking up each ounce of summer. Breathing in that lake air...I swear it smells different. Dreaming of living on the lake in all of those beautiful houses. Waving at fellow boaters as we passed them. Marveling at the wildlife (a Bald Eagle, Loons and Deer). Reminding ourselves that this is right in our backyard and we are so so so lucky.

Sebago Lake is the deepest lake in the state (316 feet) and is also the water supply for the greater Portland area, so it is incredibly clean and fresh. It's also 45 square miles making it the second largest in the state. I just simply love it.

If you click on the picture it should open up larger so you can see where I grew up and where I live now in relation to this fabulous lake.
