A weekend in Portland, Maine
You may already know this about me, but I love Portland, Maine.
I love it so very much. It’s my happy place, well – outside of Atlanta. And also the Netherlands. And, any restaurant that has decent tacos on the menu.
Portland is home to some favorite local spots – like The Honey Paw, Eventide, and a whole bunch more. You may have even seen my Portland City Guide! Or perhaps you saw that Tim and I got engaged in Portland? Either way, you may already know about my love for the darling coastal city.
It’s got everything – kind locals, great oysters, and even a delicious fermentory – because…Portland. It also holds some of my fondest memories. Yes, of course – that one time I went to the lighthouse with my dear friend Kelly and walked away with a ring and a fiancé. But also frigid winter walks in the perfect amount of snow, strolls through Old Port, and the ridiculously incredible flavors of the city.
And, in honor of a very special day, I’m revisiting our latest weekend in Portland, Maine. What special day, you ask? April 2! Tim proposed on this very day last year and we thought it was reason to celebrate.
While we spent our actual anniversary on the road driving from Boston to Atlanta, we took our annual anniversary trip out of Massachusetts to Portland. Well – sometimes we go to New York, but that’s beside the point. We eagerly ventured up for our favorite getaway in Maine the day after Christmas and promptly planned to head to all of our favorite eateries, including a few new ones.

*ps. In true Gabi fashion, this was supposed to go live yesterday….don’t worry, I know it’s 4/3 now! What can I say, life happens, right? 😉
