Happy weekend!

The first work week of 2023 is in the books. How in the heck did that happen? TB just rediscovered the Peanuts One a Day Calendar she bought herself a few months back on January 5th, so she’s feeling like she’s been robbed of four days of happiness. Miranda’s been working nonstop on to-do lists to help keep TB more organized. This might be a losing battle, but everyone please wish Miranda luck on this quest.

Let’s get to all the sapphic goodness from the week!

Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

To answer last week’s mystery, 28% of you were right. I stumbled upon Nubble Light in Maine. Also, 42% of you think I’m the type to fall into the ocean. I didn’t on this day because I’ve learned from another unfortunate time when I got too close to the edge.

Now for this week’s guessing game.

On the day I visited Nubble Light, I was inspired and sought out another Maine lighthouse.

Here are some facts about the second lighthouse.

1. This historic lighthouse is located in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

2. It sits at the entrance of the main shipping channel into Portland Harbor.

3. In 1787, construction began at the directive of George Washington. It wasn’t finished until January 10, 1791.

4. The original sources of light were whale lamps.

5. Edward Hopper’s watercolor of the lighthouse, painted in 1927, resides at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

6. The lighthouse appeared in three seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Now for some of TB’s photos.

Time to vote on which lighthouse I visited.

Polls are open until January 12 and the answer will be revealed on Saturday, January 14.

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Where in the Heck is TB?

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Miranda & TB
