Four

Four years ago yesterday we were doing this:
October 9, 2004

We spent all day yesterday joking that we now have a degree in marriage. 4 years = degree, right? Matt was all “you’re not going to graduate and leave me, right?” And I was all “nope – we’re headed into marriage post-graduate work – being parents.” Heh.

Anyways we’re actually pretending our anniversary isn’t for another week.

See the plan was always to go on a trip for our anniversary this year. Go somewhere spectacular and romantic and celebrate in style… especially since all of our vacations (and vacation time) so far this year has been spent with family or friends – not that Boston wasn’t AWESOME – but it would be nice to spend our remaining time off together. Just the two (and a half) of us.

Although for obvious reasons most of our normal vacation activities are out. There could be no crazy backpacking, hiking, or camping. And I’m so not up for our usual intense urban tourism where we hit all of the museums and architecture during the day and then go out drinking that night. And our last romantic getaway to wine country wouldn’t exactly work either.

So we searched. And we googled. And finally we came up with the perfect destination:
Maine
1. Lighthouse, Acadia National Park, 2. Autumn in Acadia, 3. Boat in Acadia National Park, Maine

We’re going to spend a nice long weekend in Maine. We’re staying and a spa (!) just outside of Acadia National Park and renting a car so we can drive along the coast and check out some of the lighthouses and small towns:
Maine
1. Bass Harbor, Maine, 2. Maine - Kennebunkport - Town Center, 3. Maine Lobster Boats rafted together at Milbridge Town Pier waiting for Kyle, 4. fall leaves in a small coastol town in maine, 5. Maine Coast 3, 6. Maine Coast Rocks

We plan on eating lots of lobster (don’t worry – it’s ok for me to eat), getting massages (there is a special pre-natal one for me, and a men’s one for Matt), and just generally relaxing together.
My creation
1. Lobster Rolls in Maine, 2. Lobster from Maine from Wayne, 3. Maine Lobster Boats

But thanks to off season rates not starting until after Columbus Day we’re not leaving until next Wed. So this year our anniversary is Oct. 16 not Oct. 9.

I can’t wait.

    Acadia looks really beautiful! And spa time, ahhhh. Sounds like it's bee fun, romantic, and relaxing - as all anniversary vacations should be! (Except for us- this year, we just looked at the renovated bathrooms that took up all our money this year. Yeah, good times.)

  13. Congratulations on the anniversary!!! :-)

    Maine is just fantastic - and a great getaway! You'll probably also have a better time this coming weekend. Last weekend was terribly busy everyday, with leaf peepers everywhere - you could hardly get a table at the local joint! :-)

    Have a great time!

  15. Oh, Acadia, How do I love thee? I think you counted all the ways. There's a great hiking trail around this one little inlet that is great. Andrew and I went to Acadia on our first vacation together, in 1998. It's beautiful. I hope you're having the time of your life!
