Does Summer Have Wings?

...Because it's FLYING by!

Whew! I've been BUSY! We just returned from a weekend at the All Good Music Festival about 45 minutes away in Thornville, Ohio. We had SO much fun! Being with our friends, meeting cool people, grooving to some sweet music, and taking in the whole "festie" vibe that I've come to love so much! Saturday night's ALLMAN BROTHERS show was one of the best I've seen in quite a while! Derek Trucks & Warren Haynes are playing with the Allmans right now and they are amazing! We saw Derek with his wife Susan Tedeschi and their band (Tedeschi/Trucks Band) in the spring and they were amazing. We also saw G.Love & Special Sauce (swoon!), The Wood Brothers, Yonder Mountain String Band, and SO many more! No overlapping sets, plenty of space, and for the most part, a general attitude of kindness surrounding us. It doesn't get much better than this!

Seriously folks, get out there, see live music. It's so good for the soul!

Meanwhile, I've been feeling pretty guilty that I've been slacking on blog posts! Partially because I know that the back-to-school rush is about to begin and it will be harder to find time to post. Hopefully I'll be working on some sweet school projects soon that I can report on!

Until then, enjoy some photos from our weekend! I can't wait to do it all again next year!

My sun-freckles are here!

We were so close for G.Love's show!
Amazing oil paintings. When we complemented the artist he said "I just throw paint around!" :)
My, Oh My!



The tent city where we made our home for a few days



Even if I was going to spend $400 on one of these, how could I choose?

So many wonderful sights to be seen!
