I’ve never done much for Labor Day Weekend, usually I offer to work because I don’t have plans. This year Julie planned a 28th birthday adventure for us and it was everything I dreamed of.
Unlucky for me it started with what I think was food poisoning so I was still recovering on Saturday as we headed to our summer house in Rome, Maine. I felt better on Sunday when we hung out with our parents, but still wasn’t 100%. Monday, though, I was back in the game just in time for some glamorous camping aka glamping!
We got to Tops’l Farm at 2:30pm and were able to check in at 3:00pm. The check in store was super cute and of course I bought more beer and some cute camping mugs that we couldn’t live without. Julie bought what we actually needed like campfire wood.
The campsite was perfect! We had our own little wooded path entrance and each had a double bed. The tent was adorable and so spacious, just what glamping should be. We got our stuff settled, ate a cheese plate, and lounged before walking over to the yurt.
The yurt is on the other side of the property and was a serene walk given the slight rain. Julie and I had a private yoga class scheduled with Sarah. She taught the best class since she tailored it to our strength and had music that we knew, but was also calming. It’s been a while since I’ve done a yoga class and this was just what I needed with the candles, incense, teacher, my twin, and rain sounds on the roof.
The yurt itself is so cute and right on the water. If it wasn’t raining we’d definitely have had a drink by the water but we had to get back to cook dinner.
The rain stopped just in time to cook dinner, the grass fed burgers that Julie reserves for us! Julie crushed the fire starting and I owned the whole cooking part. It was so fun to cook on a cast iron skillet over an open flame, I felt like such a natural!
We ate on the porch since it had started to rain a bit more, the porch being covered. I love camping I’ve decided even if it doesn’t come with twin beds and full showers. Julie and I spent the evening talking in our beds and listening to the rain. I love having alone time with Julie, she’s my best friend and I miss her. I often need alone time with her, or a few beers, to be truly honest about all things life related.
Unfortunately in the morning all of our matches and paper were moist from the rain and overall temperature changes. Therefore, we couldn’t get the fire going to cook breakfast. Luckily we had eaten an evening snack of Humpty Dumpty chips, a Maine staple, so we lasted until about noon although this girl was getting hangry.
Julie and I stopped for lunch at Mae’s Cafe in Bath. I devoured scrambled eggs, bacon and Brussels hash and some cinnamon swirl toast. We still had a few hours in the car so we bought some bakery items and this girl strongly enjoyed a peanut butter chocolate chunk cookie. It was gigantic but worth every single bite. Having been nauseous for the majority of the weekend Labor Day was my day to enjoy my favorite foods: breakfast, toast, cookies, and PIZZA!
Thank you to Julie for the glamping experience and the company. I’d go on any adventure with you! You make life fun.
