How's your day so far? I've been feeling wonderful. Since I've been home, I've been connecting with old friends, lining up cool projects and opportunities, and settling back into my routines. I can honestly say that I've been really happy lately.
Before I bring you all in the loop though, I want share pictures from our staff banquet. Because it was off the hook this year. The food, the decor, everything was just so lovely!
One thing that I loved about this year is that I truly made real, lasting friendships with some of my co-counselors. For instance- my roommie and I, Lynnette, became super close! We we gossiped, vented, and laughed the summer away together. But the key- we also knew how to give each other space. And let me tell you- it's rare that I can find a person I can actually stand to be around 24/7.
I'm going to miss you so much Lynnette! Hopefully, I'll be able to get over to the UK someday to visit!!
Katie (pictured below) also became a really good friend. Luckily, she only lives in Boston. So the plan is to go play lots of shows in that area, and
More friends! Zac and Alex! And Zac lives near NYC!! Yayyyy!!
This is the entire 2013 Appel Farm music staff. Honestly, it was such an honor and a pleasure to work with these folks. For the most part, there was very little drama and everyone seemed to mesh well. They were all so talented, too! Gary, Dickie, and Andy were responsible for backing me up during this performance, and David, Alex, and Brian played with me on this rock song. And Gary and Jacob played this song with me! Such great times.
At the end, there were also the warm and fuzzies. These are just little messages you write and receive to people who are an inspiration to you, or who you think are cool. It sure is amazing to read all your warm and fuzzies after you've left. To know the positive things people think about you, but don't get to tell you during the time you work together.
I personally think we could use a national warm and fuzzy day :) There are sooo many people in my life that deserve a random "Hey. You're awesome. This is why..." But I guess we don't really need a special day for that. We can do it any time we want! I'll start now...
Today's warm and fuzzy... I love all you guyzzz!! :P
I hope everyone's summer was just as amazing as mine was!
