Dress - ASOS, cuffs - antique/thrifted, sandals - Bakers
Today I went into Bucks County with my aunt to visit the Michener Museum - an art museum in Doylestown featuring a nice collection of works by several local artists - and the nearby Peddler's Village. I was impressed with the museum; I especially liked seeing some of George Nakashima's original work and James Auth's political cartoons. Afterwards, we ate at an Indian restaurant called Cross Culture, which was somehow my first time eating Indian food since returning to the States... it was quite delicious and filling (but not heavy).
My sister told me I'd love Peddler's Village, but I was actually a bit underwhelmed. There were a few nice shops and the "village" itself was so charmingly beautiful - and peaceful! - but overall the vibe was a little too Martha-Stewart-country-home for my tastes. I did walk away with some delicious jasmine incense, though, and I'm now regretting my decision to not buy an amethyst pendant from the same shop... eh, it happens.
I have very few complaints about life as of lately, which is nice. Last Thursday I ended up having what I proclaimed to be "the best night of summer so far" at 6am or so following a walk (during which I frolicked and cartwheeled) around my neighborhood. I saw friends I hadn't spent time with since last year, and it was good to catch up and reminisce and whatever else. I've no plans for this week aside from a double shift at work tomorrow and the morning shift on Sunday. I'm hoping to have fun.
