  5. Gotta love a spring L.L. Bean shopping spree! You got some awesome items! Now I want to go!

    I got your email about Hancock while we were actually on our way to Hancock. Perfect timing! :) We thought the town was very charming and the house was amazing, but we ruled it out. We want to be within a 45 minute drive to Boston. We found a town we fell in love with though! So adorable! I'll have to tell you the name of the town privately since I'm not naming the town on blog. With 4 kids I guess I get a little overly-careful about giving out such information online.

  6. Erin.. What a wonderful post! I love all your new items..what great taste you have. The coin purse is adorable !!

    xoxo Gert

  9. Oh, Erin....So nice to hear from you. LOVE your header. Could I ask you a favor again? So sorry, but can you tell me the name of that artist again? This time I'm going to print it out and paste it in my blog information notebook. My email is THANKS, Erin. Can't wait to start hearing about some of your excursions. Are you going to go to some B&Bs? Oh, that would be fun to read about. Take care. Susan
