A Cottage in Maine

So if you're going to stay in Maine, you should surely stay in a little white cottage with shutters. One with rose bushes creeping up the porch railing. One with the perfect climbing tree, a porch for morning coffee-sipping, and a master bedroom with a view of the ocean. Yes, that's the one. 

And so it was that we found this perfectly charming little cottage on the "quiet side" of Acadia National Park, owned by a lovely woman who splits her time between New York City, Paris, and Maine—ooh-la-la! And we made it our home for six enchanting days. We boiled lobster here, celebrated the 4th of July here, lost teeth here, and organized tide pooling adventures here. 


Joe and Marguerite look out on the Atlantic Ocean from our little cottage on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island in Acadia National Park. 
The kids instantly made their home in the sprawling tree in the front yard.
Elizabeth found time to relax and enjoy the slow pace of life
in Southwest Harbor, Maine, on Mt. Desert Island. 
William and Lucia share giggles in our cute little kitchen.
A great kitchen, complete with lobster pot. 
Silliness reigns in our lil' kitchen on Mt. Desert Island.
Oh, and when Mom gets silly, toddlers take advantage and swipe at full cups of milk above their heads. Or something like that.

Too bad the Papa the Photographer is not in this cottage pic.
Check out the sky blue porch ceiling. Love...
