Best. Weekend. Ever.

I was a little concerned that after 8 months of anticipation, the Mumford concert wouldn’t live up to what I’d dreamed it would be (yes, I had dreams about it… but in my dream nightmare I had missed the concert). I don’t know what I was worried about. It was a perfect weekend. The weather was a little warm and there was some rain but as the hemp-crystal-necklace-wearing hippie next to Luke said during ‘rain down on me’ lyrics… ‘IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!’. It was. The Mumford concert was my favorite part of the weekend, but there were other good parts… lots of other bands (including old crow medicine show and edward sharpe), tasty food on a stick, cornhole, beers, and some of my favorite people. Let’s do it again next weekend, guys.

Last weekend I got to spend a rare treasure of a day with Liz at the beach on the North Shore (of Massachusetts, none of this north shore Minnesota business). A day at the beach is my favorite – hands down. We ended the beach day with a trip to the epic Captain Dusty’s. There are three locations but the best is Manchester-by-the-Sea. This is also the site of where I obtained my freshman fifteen. It could have been worse, Mom. I could have gained the weight from beer or something less tasty.

Handsome couple

My favorite couple was in town last weekend and let me practice my photo skillz on them before they took off for a wedding. Clean up nice, don’t they? 😉

Downie-Brooms Wedding

This past Saturday, my cousin Heather tied the knot with Isaiah Brooms in Arlington, VA. Pictures from the big day are posted on my Flickr photostream. Congrats, guys!


If you’ve been looking for pictures of what Bear and I have been up to (since Luke doesn’t like to be photographed) check out my feed on Instagram ( The quality of the photos is pretty terrible since I’ve been using the camera on my phone.
