Today I felt like throwing it all on. If it wasn't so hot on, I would have also added a scarf and leopard shoes. Today I just felt like being the crazy lady with too much going on.
Tonight my sister and I are going to see The Chris Robinson Brotherhood at The Birchmere. My sister has adored Chris Robinson for eons, and it will awesome to see him perform in such a small venue. I've seen the Black Crowes in concert, and am looking forward to checking out his new group and sound!
How was your 4th of July? The first part of the day for us was pretty chill – slept in (with a toddler that means 7am), did some cleaning and organizing around the house, finally got around to hanging up a painting by Karl's grandfather – we originally decided to put it in our bedroom, but it was just too freaky to wake up and see him staring at us from his boat. Far better in the living room, and it really opens up the space. Later in the day, three of our friends came over – Karl grilled ribs, corn, and salmon and we had a salad and my friend Nicole's phenomenal rosemary bread. We then walked down to the town lake for a drum circle and fireworks.
Emerson survived maybe a minute of fireworks and even with her Peltor headphones found them too loud and scary so my husband took her home. These were the first fireworks I had seen in person for YEARS and they were phenomenal – my town really knows how to celebrate the holiday!
