This day goes down in the books as one of the best days ever. Not just because of all the fun stuff going on, but both James and I just felt really good, and just enjoyed the whole day together. I actually only took about 4 photos the whole day b/c we were just in the moment, which is great. Most of these other people took. My favorite is the one above by our new friend Kate Kelly. Speaking of new friends, we met so many people and fell in love with them all. Every person we chatted with was so sweet. We felt like we walked away with a handful of new friends more than anything.
They decorated the place so lovely. I'm sad I didn't get more photos of the set up before the rain started coming down b/c they did such a great job with the decor. The coffee/thrift shop it was set up at, Friend and Neighbors was really cute. I can't wait to go back sometime so I can actually browse the shop and sit and enjoy some coffee by their teepee.
They set up the bands in this shed b/c of the 100% chance rain, which actually did happen. Everyone crammed in their for the 4 bands that played, and sadly I didn't get to see any of them play b/c of that. The sound was so muffled on the outside from everyone being in there that you couldn't really enjoy the music even from the outside... but it didn't really matter b/c we were just enjoying getting to know people the whole time anyway. I squeezed myself into the back of it for Jamestown Revival so I could hear the music, but couldn't see a thing, and was sadly standing next to a group of people who talked the whole way through them playing. But I got to chat with the guys before they went on, and was surprised to know that they remembered who we were after only meeting them once at their show in San Antonio about a year & 1/2 ago. That was pretty cool in my book b/c I'm sure they meet alot of people on the road. They are such nice guys.
Our favorite part of the night was getting to chat with the girls from La Colombe, Kathryn & Kate. They are the sweetest people ever and made us feel right at home (even though they are from Philly and were in our backyard)... we pretty much chatted the day away with them. We haven't announced it yet, but there is some very exciting things in the works with these guys and us, and we can't wait to share. The whole day was so serendipitous and felt like the stars had been aligning for a very long time to make it happen.
Afterwards we met up with our friends Katie and Justin for some grub. We were going to eat at the restaurant with the bright teal wall... We went in, order waters, took a look at the menu, and decided it was not the place for us! We felt so bad, but we had to skip out and go somewhere else. We ended up going to a great little mexican place for tacos and were so glad we did. I just love these guys. We chatted so much it felt like we were only together for like 10 minutes before we had to leave them! Good good people. You should check out their etsy shops, Star Native & Starchaser Woodworks.
It was a day Ill never forget for so many reasons. We are so thankful for the universe aligning for us to be there.
