Wells Beach (Simple Stories Summer Fresh)


Just prior to Labor Day weekend, we made a whirlwind trip through New England, logging 1500 miles in four days. Our last stop was Wells Beach, Maine, where I spent summers as a kid. Lucky Tom summered in York Beach, Maine so he was close to the Goldenrod, a place that makes the most phenomenal taffy I've ever had. But I digress...Of course no trip is complete without photos so this is one I caught of Tom as we walked the beach. Being the good Daddy that he is, his hand is full of shells Alexa collected along the way. :)

  11. Your page elements really pop against that gorgeous red background. And red seems appropriate, since Maine is the lobster state. :)

  14. You are really working the red! Love how you decorated the pocket and used it for your journaling. You always have the perfect small touches like the button on the sun with the little label: go see do. Nice pic of Tom too. Great page.
