i want to thank you guys for your overwhelming support of my trip to camp this summer. i don't know what it is... but i'm really stressing out that i can't answer every single comment i receive from you! i've got so much to do before i go, and it's going to be so busy when i'm there.

i'm having a lot of anxiety about getting everything together in time. i keep crossing things off my to-do list, but there are ever-more items being added to it.

i just want to say thank you for reading/ listening/ being my internet pal. please know that you are cherished. even if i can't respond directly right now.



♥ listen to my new record on bandcamp

  4. wooo band camp, don't be nervous it's gonna be awesome! and this looks like an adorable afternoon, i literally drooled looking at the destroyed pie. yummers. such pretty pictures!

  5. This looks like a perfect birthday with a perfect menu! Congrats on your camp adventure, that sounds like such a fun way to spend the summer! It will probably be such a refresher to you to get out of the city and a new perspective. yay!

  6. Everywhere I venture on the internet, it seems that the most delicious lemon meringue pies are popping up all over the place. Maybe it's a sign that I need to bake one...or just eat one for that matter. This looks like a perfect birthday celebration - picnics with assorted cheeses and fruits - yep, that's the way to do it:)

    Packing to go away for any amount of time is stressful - but don't forget to find moments to relax and spend some quality "you time" in the process. I'm the same way though, so I definitely know how you feel. Your camp experience will be so worth it I'm sure:) xx Marisa

  13. I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving a comment! I enjoyed coming here and reading some of your posts! I saw that you mentioned leaving "little messes" around. I actually used to be an incredibly fussy neat freak, but I find that I have actually gotten more lax in recent months! Anyway, your picnic here looks wonderful. Such a beautiful day. That park looks like an excellent place to fly kites.


thank you for taking the time to leave a comment :) i appreciate your thoughts.
