July was a whirlwind and it startled me, a week ago now, to realize that August had arrived without me even realizing that it was sneaking up so quickly. The next few posts will catch you up on what I've been up to.
My nieces and I, along with some of our best friends, headed down to Oregon on the last weekend of July for our 2nd annual Faerieworlds trip. We've enjoyed the event so much that I think we'll be doing this for years to come. The travelling was...trying. A wildfire closed our route, and the detours we took added hours to the already long 11-hour journey. Still, we arrived in good spirits (once a glorious frozen lemonade was in hand,) and had an amazing weekend.
Here are just a few pics from the weekend. I've yet to upgrade my vintage iPhone, so the pictures are simply fair, not excellent, but it will give you a tiny taste of the magic of that weekend.
