Magical Basler Weekend

This weekend was magical. New England is pure storybook charm - so alluring, so lovely. At least the part we visited. Some tell me the residents aren't actually so wonderful, if you live there (and aren't from there). 

But because we're just tourists, that wasn't our experience. We stayed at a beautiful inn right on Boothbay Harbor, where my best friend Jessa got married on Saturday. The leaves were just beginning to turn, lobster abounded, the weather was glorious, and there was so much love and so many great reunions everywhere. Weddings are so great for that, aren't they? 

 This was a perfect transition into autumn. So thankful.

I have no photos from the ceremony, because I was a bridesmaid - AND I am a believer that if you are attending a wedding and there is a paid photographer there, just let them do their thing. : )

The photographer for this wedding was the talented Hope Mabry, whom I've heard so much about and finally got to meet. Her work is so lovely! Here's a link to some pics she snapped this weekend.  

And here's the rest of the festivities, from my iPhone.

 Got to see and spend time with so many people I love this weekend - did my heart good.

Now we're back home in Seattle, where fall is in full-force. Evidently, we missed a record-breaking day for rain here, which is fine by me, because we had perfecto weather in Maine.  

I've mostly been snuggled up in bed knitting and reading and sleeping the last few days, as I came down with a vicious cold over the weekend. But it's not been a waste! My Etsy shop is bumpin', so if you'd like a cozy scarf, head over there quick!
