Hi, butter beans! I’m popping in today to just chat about some life happenings, random thoughts, and things I’ve been loving lately!
I’ve been home for just over a month and it feels like it’s been a lot longer. It’s nice to be back. I’ve been loving being back in this beautiful lil city. There’s so much gorgeous nature and beauty here. I always appreciated this city, but I’ve just been extra in love with all the trees, weather, the beaches, and all the events that go on around here.
My last weekend in NYC, I actually spent in Boston for a music festival with some friends and it was so incredible. There were so many amazing shows, it was so fun to experience it with my friends, and there was a lot of delicious food, which was definitely a perk. Some highlights were Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, Hannibal Buress, Tegan & Sara, and Weezer. The first day of the festival it ended up pouring rain, thankfully I had a rain poncho, but one of the stages was on a grass field, which just turned into a massive mud pit. For the Bon Iver show I was actually up to my ankles in mud and slowly sinking throughout the show. It was so worth it though.
Also this past weekend I went to a Michael Bernard Fitzgerald with my brother and sister in law and it was amazing. The venue was pretty small and intimate so I was right up front like 2 feet away from MBF as he played. Last year when I saw him he had a band with him, but this time it was just him and his guitar, which was so beautiful. Even got to give him a hug after the show #fangirl.
I’m on my way to my hometown right now (well as of the day this was posted) and am pretty excited. It’s been two years since I’ve been back up there and I can’t wait to see some of my favourite people. Part of why I’m heading up north is for the music festival they have on every summer. It’s always such a blast and this year City and Colour is headlining!!! So obviously I need to be there for that. I can’t wait to be right up front for that show with my best friends, crying as we are being serenaded by Dallas Green.
