Sunset sail on the Frances

Last week Steven and I had a date of sorts. We tried something new and went on a sunset sail around Casco Bay on the Frances. We listened to awesome music from the lovely Caroline Cotter, ate the “picnic” we packed after a quick stop at Trader Joe’s, and we just enjoyed the views and each other.

We didn’t need to talk much, we just simply enjoyed each other’s presence. It was neat to watch the crew get the boat ready to sail, and to experience something like this with Steven. It was a great reminder to take time to just stop and enjoy the present – to take in new moments, and just appreciate all that there is around you.

It was an incredible two hours and did so much for my emotional and mental health. It was a gorgeous evening, and the water looked so pretty and silky. It was just perfect 🙂 2015-06-30_0001 sunset sail, casco bay, frances casco bay, portland 2015-06-30_0004 sunset sail, casco bay, frances, caroline cotter 2015-06-30_0010 2015-06-30_0011 2015-06-30_0012 sunset sail, casco bay, frances 2015-06-30_0014 2015-06-30_0015 2015-06-30_0016 2015-06-30_0017 sunset sail, casco bay, frances 2015-06-30_0019 sunset sail, casco bay, frances 2015-06-30_0006 2015-06-30_0007 2015-06-30_0008 Please, remember to take time for yourself and just enjoy being alive.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
