On The Town


Dan humors me every Sunday.
He takes me on mini adventures.


Today we went to a park close to our new home.
It was an old vacation getaway destination. 
The buildings were unkempt and the swimming pool was empty.
I wish I could have seen it in it's heyday.
Isn't that always the case?


I sported my 35th birthday dress for the adventuring.
 

I also carried my new little purse. 
I found it at an estate sale this weekend. 
I can't wait to show you what else I found. 
The estate sale was in a huge, old home with a wrapaound  porch, sagging beautiful hardwood floors, and a porchswing. 
It was for rent.
Dan and I talked about what it would be like to live in a large, older home.
We romanticized it until we realized that it had no air conditioning and the wiring was probably iffy. 
But the treasure I came home with will always remind me of that home.
It too must have had a glorious heyday.

I love that you two dressed up for your adventuring! You look sooo pretty. I hope someday you get to live in a big old home that doesn't have faulty wiring. <3
