My goodness, the last few weeks of February were filled with lots of travel and after being back home for a week, I finally feel like I am almost settled back into some sort of routine. Almost.
My husband and I went to Maine for a long weekend to attend a memorial service for my grandfather-in-law. Besides the somber reason for gathering, we had a great time hanging out with my father-in-law's side of the family, most of whom I had only met during our wedding. It was so great to hang out and hear stories about that side of the family, many of which I never heard before.
This was my first visit to Maine and I would absolutely love to go back soon. Any place that names the 'Whoopie Pie' as their official state treat is alright in my book.
I had never been in the northeast before, and was really taken back by the beauty of the landscape there. We arrived in the middle of a snowstorm, so we had the pleasure of seeing the landscape covered in snow during our trip.
I took a few photos, but as usual, I forgot to take many photos or any really good photos. Shout-out to my sister-in-law Kristine for allowing me to use some of the photos she took.

The restaurant my grandparents-in-law owned and operated. It wasn't a bright, vibrant Mexican restaurant then.

View from my relative's house. Apparently, John Travolta lives on that island across the ocean.
So close, yet so far.
Cold, cold, cold family photo.

Getting a tutorial on how to eat clams. I tried a few, but they weren't my thing.
These were definitely my thing :)
We are ridiculously good looking.
