INSTAGRAM MONDAY! 09/16/13 – 09/22/13

I am late, as always, but here is INSTAGRAM MONDAAAAAY! This week? Went down to Attleboro, MA, for two awesome family shoots… did a boudoir session in Portland… met with an amazing couple to chat about their September 2014 wedding… had dinner with my grandparents, brother, and mom… and then spent 5 days on Long Island, Maine, for the ultimate relaxation!!! We went with my husband’s parents, his sister, and his sister’s fiance (plus our 4 collective dogs)… it was awesome! I laid in a hammock, read a bunch, did an amazing puzzle (which got me hooked on puzzles), listened to music, went to the beach, went on bike rides, and ate SO MUCH good food. It was exactly what I hoped it would be! So, onto the week’s photos…
