I’m still around. Life is busy. I’m longing for warmer weather. It’s on the way, so i hear.
It’s no secret that i love Halloween. For the last few years, i’ve been also loving all the festivities associated with Dia de los Muertos, as strange as it seems. I like that there’s a day to remember the loved lost. And if i were in a bigger city, it’d be pretty cool to take part in city-wide festivities that celebrate Day of the Dead and All Saints Day. A few years ago, i set up a small altar and this year, i’ve done the same. I hope you take a moment to remember your loved lost today, and i hope you enjoyed your Halloween. I made some stabbingly delicious red velvet cupcakes and played with makeup. Oh, and i guess we can now say it’s November. Oh, how time flies.
Hello Sweet World! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was a blast. We went to a local festival in the mountains of Virginia called FloydFest and it was exactly what i needed. Good music, good food and a good time. While i’m finishing up the trip here, i thought i’d share the last of the photos from my trip to Austin, Texas. So, here goes!
Austin was the coolest city. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and wish it would’ve been longer, despite the fact that i had a horrible head cold. The pressure my head and ear felt on the plane was not a fun experience, but it was worth it. The working the night before and being awake for 32+ hours on Friday to meet my brother there – also worth it. I highly recommend a trip there if you haven’t been. There’s so much to see and do. So much food to eat. Yum. You must go. And that’s an order. 😉
I finally had a chance to get some film developed and these photos are from my ‘Virginia is for Lovers’ La Sardina lomography camera. The first two times i felt like a dummy because i didn’t twist the lens far enough to hear the ‘click’ for the camera to work so the first two rolls didn’t turn out. But third time’s the charm! I like the photos ok, but i want something brighter. I think i may have to try some lomo film sometime soon. Do you have any experience with lomography film, Sweet World?
