Portland Saturday Market

In the spring and summer in Portland, down on the waterfront, you can find Saturday Market. Lots of artists and vendors have tents to sell their works. I hadn't been down there in almost 12 years and it was fun to venture down over the weekend.
I always love spaces like this and seeing all the different crafts and wares being sold. The boys picked up some rings and blown glass necklaces and mom and I got some neat flower vases.

Happy Passover!

Why do we lean Eating matzah and herbs, drinking four cups of wine...
That’s why we lean Ask four questions and dip...
When you believe, you’re part of the story...

Happy Passover!
Another celebration of the redemption from Egypt.
Discussions of slavery and freedom.
Remembering what happened so many ages ago.
May we only know the taste of freedom.

Marathon Weekend 2019

Boston knows how to throw a party.
Marathon weekend is truly like the holiday season. The spirit is in the air. The little touches around town show how seriously we locals take this weekend. I can't help but smile walking around town!
Many of the festive touches stay around long after the finish line is taken down. The mile markers are down all year, freshened up before race day. Unicorn banners remain long into summer. For Boston this is more than a weekend, this is a way of life! Only 367 days until next year's running!

Marathon Monday!

{You are| invincible, unbreakable
Unstoppable, unshakeable...

 
 
They knock {you} down, {you} get up again
{You are} the champion...


I am the Champion -- Carrie Underwood

Yesterday is Boston's best day! Marathon Monday.
I started my day volunteering down on the Common clearing runner to load up to Hopkinton. It was a blast with teammates Emily and Gabbie and despite the monsoon (I had flashbacks) and bit we sheltered in the parking garage because of thunder and lightning, it was amazing!

After my shift was through, I dashed home to cheer in my neighborhood at mile 24. I stood outside for nearly 5 hours cheering on every runner, friend, and person passing by.

The rain came back and eventually, a rainbow emerged as the last runners made their way to the finish line.

It was beyond amazing to be back on the other side of the barrier cheering on my friends and all the runners. There was something amazing to say "you are SO close" and truly know at that point, 2 miles is nothing.

Once again, the human spirit left me speechless (and voiceless). Yesterday also marked 6 years since the marathon bombings and I only saw the definition of "Boston Strong" out there!!
