1) If you ever find yourself in Gray, Maine (a little outside of Portland) and you want a delicious, moderately-priced meal, go to Jess ‘n Nic’s Pizzeria & Pub. Oh, and ask for my niece, Faith, to be your waitress – she is awesome! I ordered their chicken and broccoli fettuccine alfredo and oh my goodness. I think they give the OG (Olive Garden) a run for its money in the Alfredo department. 🙂
2) On Sunday Tommy, Violet and I spent the morning in Cape Elizabeth where we walked and ran with Violet as we watched the waves crashing from the beach and saw a beautiful lighthouse (more on this tomorrow). Before heading back to Portland we stopped at Kettle Cove Creamery and Cafe for some blueberry smoothies and a lobster role for me to take on the plane back to D.C.!
3). Just because.
4) Please send thoughts and prayers to my dad who is (still) in Nigeria and my mom who is in Pakistan for a big conference she is leading. She’ll be back in D.C. on Sunday.
5) I’ll be back on the road again. After my work’s annual D.C. dinner tonight I am heading back up to New York City to attend a conference, the Personal Democracy Forum. Can’t wait to hear all the amazing panelists and catch up with some friends!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
