It's been one of those perfect weeks here in Portland (after all, life is good here) for just walking around town. That's exactly what these actors were doing while they were visiting Portland for the day, on a quick break from spending their summer at Theater at Monmouth.

Goodwill South Portland (555 Maine Mall Road). A friend recently reminded me that though I'm constantly telling people to go here, and I'm always finding great clothes here, I've never actually blogged about it before! Sac le bleu!

A new article came out in the New York Times that educated me about using sunscreen and I learned a few tricks I'll be putting to use this summer.
