This past weekend we celebrated (a little late) our four year wedding anniversary in Portland Maine.  We decided to wait a few months after our anniversary (August) so we could enjoy the fall foliage.  It was definitely worth the wait!!!  We took approximately 350 pictures, so it may take me some time to edit them.  However, be prepared to see a few pictures over the next two weeks of Maine! It's a beautiful place!  I could see myself living there one day, but somehow I'd have to figure out how I'd survive the winters.  Below (area in red) is where we spent the majority of our time.

  1. Yes, the winters in Maine would be where I would struggle. It can start snowing in October and could still snow in May. I love the snow but I think that would get to me. Sometimes not leaving your house for days more than once a year! If you are looking at your map, Jamie is from near Norway. :)

  2. Maine is on my To See list.

    Love your Hunters!
