My bag this week!

It’s a Dooney & Bourke all weather leather bag from 1992 or 1993.  Made in the USA!

I don’t usually carry shoulder bags, but I’m loving this bag for fall !

Cape Neddick Lobster Pound Fall Visit

We were happy to return to one of our favorite places!

The people that work here are so nice and kind.

They noticed that my Mom had a cane and gave us the closest table to the entrance both times we visited.

My Mom was happy because on one of our visits we got to have lunch with her cousins! I LOVE to see how happy she is when she’s with them!  : )

Guess what I had?!

I couldn’t resist getting this from the Nubble Light Gift Store!  They were having a sale because it’s the end of the season.

We try to mix it up to a few different places when we go away, but this place really is one of my favorites.  Nice staff, great food, and the prices seem better than the other places!

Usually we eat breakfast here!

This was breakfast view on Columbus Day.  It seems like there are always people on the beach no matter what time of day!

It isn’t vacation unless one or all of us do a ‘fishy fishy’ song with the placemat

After the holiday a lot of restaurants only open on the weekends, so we had to mix it up for one of our lunches and ate at Sun and Surf.

My Mom had yummy swordfish.

The twins had fried clams.  The portion was HUGE and they loved the clams!

Fall At Fox’s

We were in Maine for the long holiday weekend.

It was a nice time of year to be in York Beach.  Most of the crowds left on Monday the holiday and we didn’t leave until Wednesday!

We got to visit one of our favorite places a few times while we were there!

Two of My Favorites!

This week after I got home from Maine I finally found the Deluxe version of Songs of Innocence!!  : )

After I shared my photo on Instagram I saw THIS photo!  This U2 fan has the Elevation Suitcase tattoo I’ve been dreaming about, but have been too afraid to get!  This one came out perfect too!

Just Like That…Perspective!

My Mom had an appointment today.

Her doctor was running an hour behind, it was raining and she was in pain.

Now, my Mom rarely complains about pain, so we know it’s bad.  :(

She’s getting a new hip later this month and fingers crossed that will help her!

Two hours later we are leaving the medical building.  It’s pouring rain, my Mom is still in pain and we are walking slowly with her cane.

As we are walking in the lobby, I hear a Mother and her young daughter of about eight years old coming down the open air stairs.  The little girl is proudly counting out loud each step she takes!

My Mom and I are almost at the door and I need to let go of my Mom’s arm so I can bring the car over.

It’s raining so I pause at the curb before I head to the car and look back to make sure my Mom is waiting underneath an awning so she doesn’t get drenched.

I saw the little girl had grabbed onto my Mom’s hand and was standing with her.

I nearly burst into tears.  Good thing it was raining.

Got my Mom into the car and she told me as soon as I let go of her hand she felt a small hand in hers.

The Mom was starting to tell the little girl no, but she held on for a little bit.

I think this little girl sensed that my Mom needed comfort.

She was such a kind little soul and so polite.

This little girl had down syndrome and she had no idea that she was different.

Her random act of kindness made my Mom’s day and mine too!
