White gazpacho with Maine crab, including a tiny green crab garnish, was a cool and refreshing part of the menu tonight at The Brunswick Inn. Chef Ali Waks Adams presents a special Plat du Jour dinner every Tuesday night, and tonight’s was in partnership with @mainecoastfishermen. #highlyrecommend#themainefeed#letseat
About a decade ago I planted a montmorency sour cherry twig on the edge of my property. I forgot about it and moved around a whole bunch and had a couple of kids and did lots of small and big things, most of which had no discernible impact in the world at all. Then a couple of years ago I noticed red, perfect, jewel-like cherries on that twig, which is now a small tree. It felt like a miracle. There are many things that I have planted and left, started and abandoned, nurtured and lost. But finally some fruit shone before me! Now every July I get to spend a few hours in the sunshine picking those red jewels as the juice runs down my arm, and it is one of the highlights of my year. For all the stupid and pointless and misguided ways in which I have spent the hours of my life, at least I took the time to plant this cherry tree, and now I get to take the time to pick from it. Thanks cherry tree, I can’t even tell you how much. #cherries#montmorencysourcherry#maine#thewaylifeshouldbe#planttrees
It's been exactly a week since we left our dear friends in Maine. We left feeling loved, nurtured, and filled with good spirits. Along with giving me a new passion for baskets, my super creative, talented friend made this darling hoop for me and I cannot be any more in love with it! Go check out her page! @threadandleaf_home she seriously makes the most beautiful hoops! Thank you @jh_scrib and @dlscrib for such an amazing time! Your little boys are the best and we love you all!! 🌿 #mainesummersarethebest#mainelife#thewaylifeshouldbe
C'est la vie! Life is what you make it! 🚀
In order to live great big lives, and achieve great big goals, we need to know intrinsically that we ourselves are great, a soul ready to be uncovered and empowered to share the gifts of our true selves with the world in ways big and small. It's in this freeing of thought where big ideas, actions, and courage happen. So believe in yourself!
Wherever we are in life, we can always decide that it's the beginning of something amazing. Never beat yourself up for where you are, and know that you will keep on going. 💛
Just woke from a much needed nap! 3am is way too early for this girl to be up interacting with the world 😅 And then some high-intensity drama thrown in for good measure!
My flight included an in-flight medical emergency right behind me and it gave me time to evaluate and further be thankful for everything I have and experienced in life. An announcement for a medical doctor went out and we were fortunate to have one on board who was willing to help. An off-duty flight attendant was seated next to me and did his best to help as well. It was touching to see the way everyone came together to assist. I am thankful that the person and their family were able to be taken care of. Emotions were high and I found it upsetting, especially being so close. To distract myself, I watched a children's movie, Ferdinand (about a bull who doesn't want to fight). Anyhow, it left me crying with sniffles. 😭 Maybe it was the lack of sleep and the emotional emergency that put me over, but that was a good movie about walking your own path 💪

Thunder, lightning and heavy rain don’t usually mean it’s time to go fishing. I had this vision last night of catching a huge HAWG and was crazy enough to trust it. It was 10 years ago that I first tried striper fishing. There have been countless hours spent fishing without catching anything, many lures lost, lots of dollars spent and finally nailed my first keeper! 29 inches baby!! #thatswhatshesaid#stripers#HAWGS#fishing#maine#thewaylifeshouldbe#perserverance

Today’s storms made for a calm end to the day. I don’t know about you but the rainy weather makes me want to stay in bed and catch up on sleep! On that note, someone once told me that you can actually “catch up” on sleep if you do so within the first 72 hours. After that, it’s gone forever.
I was gonna eat this chocolate covered Oreo....but then I saw this pic and said “DAMN GIRL those guns!” 😝💪🏼
Does that make me “full of myself” or confident? Good question! I was listening to an interview with @oprah and she made a really good point - she said that she used to be afraid that people would think she was “full of herself” - until she leaned that she WANTED TO BE full of herself! She was proud to have her cup full! She hoped that people would interact with her and feel her positive pull! 🙌🏼Like YAS!🙌🏼 I hope that when people interact with me they feel a higher vibration! I hope my confidence and drive helps feed others, rather than me drain them out of my lack within! Think about that! Are you searching for that validation from others so much that you literally drain people? Or is your cup overflowing so you can help feed people?🤔 Let that sink in!💗
ALSO - I chose not to eat this out of respect for my goals, not out of restriction! I will go back to fitting cookies into my macros post prep! But right now, I have a goal! I don’t cheat on my goals because that is cheating on myself and what I want, and no one or nothing else!🍪
