Maine Bound!

My suitcase is full of hiking gear and snacks, I’ve got a NAGATIVE covid test in my pocket, I’m sitting shotgun in a Jeep with my masked besties and were barreling down the freeway on our way to Maine!

We’re blasting Celine Dion and ready for an adventure!

This is the same group that went to Iceland, Utah, and Costa Rica together! (Click for trip highlights!)

We’ve vowed that every summer for the rest of our lives we’re going to go on a girls getaway! (Even when we’re married!)

I’m so blessed to have these girls in my life! Particularly during the pandemic, it’s been made so apparent what a gift true friends are. I mean – we survived Covid together! I love them like sisters!

So anywho – for the next few days, I’ll be in Maine! It’s SO WEIRD to be out of the city! It’s been since…Christmas! What is this green stuff I keep seeing on the side of the highway?! Haha

And thank you so much for your wonderful comments on Monday’s post! You definitely helped relieve my fears of traveling in these corona times!

I’ll be posting all our adventures on Instagram. (@beauty.beyond.bones)

Have a beautiful weekend! See ya on the ‘Gram!

  1. This is a great thing. Traditions oare one of the things that keeps humanity going. It’s a purpose. Have fun and stay safe and well. Glad your test was a (how’d that go?) “NAGATIVE”!

  2. Have a great time! It’s great that you have each other and that you can get away to see somewhere new. Have a safe trip.

    • Thank you so much! I did actually! And a hat!!! Hahahah it was perfect for the night kayaking! Hugs and love xox

  3. Maine is fabulous, one of favourite states! Enjoy some lobster, crab, shrimp, all of it! The wilderness is beautiful, the terrain is fascinating, and the people are spectacular. (Ask them if they’re Mainers or Maniacs, that always gets a good answer.) Have a wonderful time!

    • Thanks Emily! Oh my gosh – all the seafood was incredible! I ate so much lobster! Wowwww wowwwwww wowwwww! Hahahah Hugs and love xox

  4. Good journey to you all 🙂

    You also have been to Iceland in the past? I visited there too and I must say it belongs to my favourite countries wherever I have travelled to (I came around almost the whole world). The landscape and sceneries changed almost all 5 minutes enfolding new spectacular impressions like: lunar landscapes, lava areas, light blue sulfur lakes, crater lakes, geysers, impressive waterfalls and landscapes of indescribable beauty.

    So I wish you and your friends an exciting journey. Return savely, my dear friend Caralyn with your f riends.

    Love and light to you

  5. Have a great time! I recommend Bar Harbor. I took a trip there long ago in my single years. God bless you all. Don’t worry- God is with you.

    • Thanks Amy! We had such a special time!! And yes! I definitely felt He was! Hugs and love xox

  6. Hey Caralyn. God’s Blessing and Protection as you four Beauties are out on your adventurous travels.
    Holy Spirit has your tour all mapped out for the best time possible. As you Hear His direction, as I know you are always listening, and follow His way, y’all will have a Maine trip of a lifetime, you will be Blessed, Jesus will be Glorified, and we back in our home areas will be looking forward to hearing of great times.

    God’s Blessing.

  8. Stay safe out there! A lot is happening so stick with your gut if something feels off but also enjoy yourself because people need to get back to their lives.

    Also without trying to hijack your fun blog with political nonsense I’m writing the rest of my comment in your Kamala blog post.

    • Thank you so much! You’re right – we played it super suuuuper safe and stayed outside the entire time!! Awesome! Hugs and love xox

      • Yeah we need a ton of prayers right now. Tried watching the DNC this past weekend and I’ve been on edge, so much negative energy and it scares me to think America might be going in the wrong direction.

        Remember the devil is a liar, people need to watch the signs, even the DNC logo screams evil. Gotta pray God has everything under control.

    • Thank you so much Ali!! Oh my gosh WE DID!!! it was so special! Hope your week is off to a great start! Hugs and love xox

    • Thank you so much Sherri! Oh that’s so exciting! I hope you guys have an incredible trip!! Hugs and love xox

    • Oh DEFINITELY add it to your list!! I know – it’s such a special group of friends! Hugs and love xox

  9. Aloha Carolyn!
    I hope you and the ladies have a trip full of adventures and amazing memories! Maine is a magical place. The summer before my partner and I turned 30 we decided that we wanted to turn 30 in a new place so we sold our house and took 2 cats and our 2 cars across the country from Washington State to Maine. It was the 1st time either of us had ever been to the East coast and we cherished our time in Portland, Maine. We actually bought a house in Northern Maine that we still own, but that winter decided the East coast was too cold for us.
    This is the perfect time of year to explore that magical coastal state. Sending lots of hugs and love and looking forward to reading about your adventures!

    <3 Alana

    • Aw thank you:) they really are — the most priceless gift. I feel so blessed. Thanks for reading!! Hugs and love xox
