This weekend, R and I headed to a festival a few towns over called Rythm on the River. We were thinking we could grab some unhealthy fair food, look at some local art, and listen to music. Unfortunately, the only food tents we saw were from chain restaurants like Old Country Buffet, the artwork was few and far between, and the stalls seemed to be advertising for local insurance agencies and heating and cooling companies. There was a really good sounding Irish folk band playing but the heat was so blistering it was really uncomfortable standing in one place outside for more than five minutes. Oh well, at least we made an effort to leave his air conditioned basement and get up off the couch to check it out!

I dressed for the occasion in a newly found vintage chambray dress that I shortened and am loving, a woven hat, and a pair of comfortable oxfords for walking around. I felt a little bit like a young explorer from the 1960s, perhaps a little Suzy-esque from Moonrise Kingdom, sans knee-highs. I looked more than a little out of place in a see of cut offs and tattered baseball hats, but I decided to embrace it. Do you ever get somewhere and find yourself thinking, well this sucks, but at least I like what I am wearing? I guess that sounds superficial but I more meant I believe in trying to take away a small shred of positivity even if its an overall lousy experience!
I have to admit, I am running on empty and its only day four out of the twelve days I am working in a row! Oh well, a little catch up on sleep should do the trick. Do you have any fun weekend plans? Please tell me so I can live vicariously through you!
