the week when the festivities began: portland, maine // 51

As soon as I drove into my brother’s neighborhood Friday night, I had the feeling that I was gonna be celebrating “Christmas in Maine”… like a small town, coastal Maine Christmas movie. It just felt magical and cozy and wintery. There was ice/snow on the ground, it was bitterly cold. But, it was toasty warm in the house. And there was pizza waiting for us! And beer!
