For my 27th birthday, I decided I deserved a little vacation. My sister lives in NYC and always welcomes me to come visit her. I also have some amazing friends who live in the city and along the east coast  and seeing them was just the perfect birthday present. I have a very sweet spot in my heart for Maine.  When I first moved away from home at 18, I took off to Maine to attend college. It was a huge leap for me & though I lived there only 2 years before moving to Boston to finish my studies, it remains that place that gave me independence and a true sense of self. It was there that I really began figuring out my identity as an artist. I also really really love the Maine landscape and people, and will take any opportunity to see my lovely photographer friend, Emily, who I met in my first year of art school. She’s one of  those people who consistently inspires me to grow as an artist and as a person.  

My week consisted of lots and lots of walking with my camera. And lots of catching up with friends & my sister. It was exactly what I wanted & needed. I browsed flea markets, antique stores, ate amazing food, sat on rooftops in Brooklyn with friends, and laid on the beach in Maine.  It was a whirlwind, but the most complete vacation I could have asked for.  I think it might need to become an annual birthday trip. 

So here is my little collection of images from my trip…enjoy!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
