Entertaining Guests

We had guests visiting from Atlanta and Germany this weekend. They all flew in for a long weekend of sightseeing and seafood eating.

The temperatures were pretty cool but we made the most of what sun we had. We managed to see some coastline and lighthouses, with a little shopping thrown in for good measure at the outlets in Freeport. We laughed, drank, and took tons of photos.

We made our new friends from Germany, Alex and Sabine, and Joel from Atlanta promise to come back in the summer when the temperatures are warmer and they can enjoy more Maine has to offer.

A Fall Tradition

We have a tradition in our home that started the first year we purchased our house.

It’s known as the McEwan First Fire of the Season.

Friday night we invited friends over for some drinks, appetizers, and dessert.

Normally I light the fire when everyone shows up. But this time I was smart and lit it before everyone arrived to have the ambiance set for the evening.


Then the room was filled with warmth (and not from the fire), fun and laughter:


We have great friends and love sharing our fireplace with them.
