Hello, internet. I know I have been woefully absent from my little fledgling blog, and for that I am sorry. I plan to make that up to you, tenfold, in the coming days/weeks/months. To begin my atonement, I present to you a multi-part series entitled What I Did On My Summer Vacation.
(Original, I know.)
To kick it off, I give you a photo recap of our weekend mini-trip to NYC for the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island. For those of you unfamiliar with it, the Jazz Age Lawn Party is a big two-day 1920s-style lawn party, complete with costumes, cocktails, a big band and dancing. I’d wanted to go for years, so this year I decided it was time. I gathered my cheap beads and a vaguely art deco-esque Urban Outfitters dress I’d scored at Buffalo Exchange* and hopped on the bus with the husband (and his old-timey bathing suit) in tow. Here’s what the day looked like.
Balmy temperatures and long lines** notwithstanding, it was a mighty fine time.
Stay tuned for the next episode of What I Did On My Summer Vacation! I promise there’s even more good stuff to share soon…
* I don’t shop at Urban Outfitters, for reasons maybe someday I’ll blog about. #highhorse
** They eventually started bringing free cocktails to us poor souls waiting in the food lines…
