This was the view from the hellish jobsite that I was on this past week, it was the only thing keeping me sane. #sunrise #vinalhaven #maine #islandstyle

I think it’s time for a trip to the island I miss the beautiful views 🌅 #island #vinalhaven #missingit

Lessons Learned... One week ago today I was headed to #Maine for what seemed like a pretty easy weekend getaway, with the goal of finding some land to build a our dream vacation home (see an earlier post on my wall about this). Turned out to be a more challenging trip thanks to Mother Nature. We got 6-8 inches of snow on the evening before we were to travel by ferry to a remote island called #Vinalhaven.
The locations we were hoping to see were not only covered in fresh new heavy snow, but also a thick layer of ice underneath. It was no surprise that the dirt road to the property we were most interested in was impassable. What should have been a one mile quick drive became a one mile challenging hike on snow and ice!
We made it there and back— and the beauty of the location made it all worthwhile. What also proved positive were the lessons learned by pushing forward on this day when I could have so easily given up and stayed in my comfort zone. I love my comfort zone... and, I hate traveling in snow! The challenge beat out the fear that day. Here are the lessons I was reminded of that may encourage you too:

1. Don't stop exploring. There is SO much beauty in this world, everywhere we turn. Get out and find it— and enjoy it!
2. Get out of your comfort zone. Yes, it feels great to stay in the place we know and love, but it feels even better to push past that place.
3. Take a break. I love to work non-stop, but this adventure reminded me of how taking a brief break can deliver far more productivity in the long run. This week in the office has been proof that breaks are revitalizing.
4. Change your scenery. This ties back to getting out of your comfort zone but is more literal. Truly consider having a home away from home. I’ve been slow to take this idea on (you can ask my husband), but actually being in another state, and realizing that we will have a home away from home one day feels great! Different places offer us different types of inspiration.
5. Do something that scares you. Fears hold us back from so much. I was going to let it hold me back from seeing a place that will likely now become a new home for my family.

I will forever think chickens are the tiny spawns of Satan.... but their eggs are so delicious fresh!!! Thank you Gina!!!! #fresheggs #vinalhaven #eatlocal #eggs

Quick walk through the flagship @lienielsentoolworks showroom before heading to #vinalhaven. The attention to their heirloom quality tools is great but unfortunately above my pay grade. I did walk out with some free swag though!

Sneaking in the briefest of visits to Maine just in time for a sunset and some shimmery gray shingles. #modernarchitecture #shinglestyle #grayisgorgeous #almostspring #vinalhaven

Loaded with hay and on the way home!

It’s a bit cliche to get coffee cups when you travel to destinations... but I do it anyway. I love drinking a cup of coffee in the wee hours of the morning from a cup that brings me good thoughts for the day. #maineherewecome #Mainebound #Maine #rocklandmaine #rockland #vinalhaven #vinalhavenisland #vacationhomes #coastalmaine #midcoastmaine #coffee #coffeetime #butfirstcoffee #coffeecup #coffeecups
