This summer was especially special. We had our ten year anniversary, Drew turned 40, old friends came to visit, and my family -including my brother, mom, dad, stepmom, and lots of uncles-aunts-cousins gathered. Having everyone so close & healthy & happy… well, it was just wonderful.
The majority of the days were filled with swimming, music, & talking about what we should do for dinner. The photos of the place that looks like a hippie commune are of our cousin’s incredible home, Tinder Hearth -which is a bakery/garden/music venue/happy place.
I actually didn’t break out the camera all that much. What you see was shot with the 35 1.4 lens and Canon Mark 3. The song is from the movie The Jerk, sung by Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. Our friends Lauren and Mark came up from NYC and brought their ukulele and sang this song. Now listening to the lyrics back home in California, it sounds like a little love song to our happy time in Maine… Enjoy. 🙂
