I am sitting here totally lazy, still in my pj's and drinking a cup of coffee in the most lovely green cup and saucer my friend Megan gave me for my birthday! She's so awesome. I have the best friends.
This past weekend was SO MUCH FUN! A friend randomly told me about an event up in Wisconsin last Friday. It was so last minute that I didn't even think I'd go, but somehow it all worked out and within two hours I was on the road to a beautiful rural spot in Wisconsin! Yes, it's another living history thing. I had zero expectations about this event, so I had an absolute blast! I brought just enough with me so I could carry everything I needed. The entire time my feet were soaked and the hem of my dress was wet and muddy. Except never really keeping warm (and the fact that my sunburn was kind of bothering me) it really was a great experience. I love sleeping out in the wilderness. Even though you rarely get any sleep because you have to sleep in all of your clothes plus corset, with one blanket and no padding, no pillow and sometimes no covering over your head. But I honestly had a wonderful time out there. I also got to see some pals I haven't seen in ages. A few of which I had no idea would be there, so it was great bumping into them! I love being in a crazy dorky hobby. You get to meet so many interesting people. I think that part of it is one of the most enjoyable. I could go on and on and on, but I think I'll stop now and go take my shower. Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
