This is home.

     I apologize for the lack of posts lately. Since I've come home I haven't really been doing much except for resting and attempting to catch up on my make-up work for school, and my life has been very un-exciting. Most days I don't even get out of my old ratty pajamas, and on rare days (like today!) I've managed to put on some yoga pants and a t-shirt... not exactly fashion post worthy material!

     The one the thing that I did make time to do though was to spend a little time at the local beaches on Saturday and Sunday. One fact is that my hometown and the surrounding areas have gorgeous beaches. A second fact is that while they are beautiful year round, they definitely aren't warm year round! It was in the 40s both days when I took these photographs, and that's average (if not warm) for March in Maine. Typically the beaches are a little more sandy and a little less rocky, but Maine has had several storms lately which has eroded much of the sand and exposed a lot of rocks.

     Without further ado, I present to you a taste of my (true) home:











     I've never taken the time before to appreciate how beautiful the ocean is in this season of late winter/early spring. God's creation is truly magnificent isn't it? One of the things that I miss the most when I'm at school is the smell of the salty air and the simple beauty of watching the waves crash against the sand and rocks. I'm truly blessed to call this home. As much as I love the south, I'll always be a Maine girl at heart... whether I like it or not!

     What's naturally beautiful in your hometown?

  3. Gorgeous!! It must be nice to have that peaceful ocean to return home to on breaks :)

    I'm in the middle of the South (but also living in the city) so any farmland I come across seems extra beautiful in comparison to our normal city views.

    1. The South definitely has tons of beautiful farms and country!! Yet cities also have their charm too. That's why I love the South- you get everything there! :-)

    1. Thank-you!! I think it's important for all of us Mainers to remember to especially enjoy the beaches before the tourists get here, hehe!
