This beautiful latte was a rare treat at a local coffee shop and book store yesterday. It was as delicious as it was beautiful. This morning, I'm drinking a plain cup of coffee and getting ready to settle in at the sewing machine. Stay tuned for photos

I'm not a pumpkin beer lover, but I love this locally made Tributary Brewing Gose. If it's next to a pumpkin at @thistlepig , that's good enough, right? #beer #craftbeer #eatlocal #drinklocal
My day is starting off in the most amazingly delicious way! These handmade, potato based donuts from The @holydonutmaine in Portland are life changing. They're also nut free, so our son was able to safely enjoy one this morning. He finished his donut with
Wonder why I love our local food scene so much? This photo from @moxynh of a Bear's Head mushroom with smoked hot peppers, soft polenta, kale, and sunchoke chips should explain it.
A dreary, rainy day seems like the perfect excuse to step away from the pile of work on my desk to catch up with friends and grab a great cup of coffee, doesn't it? #coffee
Words fail to describe just how amazing this Arthur Farmhouse Saison from @hillfarmstead is. I'm going to stick with "Wow!" And get back to enjoying it! #craftbeer #beer

There's a kitchen experiment underway in the farmhouse kitchen tonight. We're putting our own spin on Pasta All 'Amatriciana tonight. The recipe looked so good in an old issue of Bon Appetit Magazine that I couldn't help but put a few pounds of our homeg
This brownie from Lil's Cafe in Kittery, ME must have a whole stick of butter in it along with fabulous dark chocolate. Julia Child would have wanted it that way, right?

Local eggs, ham, and challah make this Eggs Benedict at Thistle Pig in South Berwick, ME a favorite Sunday treat. Adding an Evil Twin Joey Pepper to the mix certainly didn't hurt matters. #localfood #craftbeer
This @smuttynosebeer Tripel is amazing! I love that it is made a few miles from our farm. I really love how fabulous it tastes! This may be my new favorite. #craftbeer #smuttynose
I couldn't help myself: we had to go see @moxynh 's 200+ jars of canned tomatoes in person. I might have had a bit of food and drink while we were there.
This is going to feel like a long ride home. The delicious aroma from a mashed potato, bacon, scallion pizza has filled the car and is making me so hungry!
