There's something beautiful about carnivals. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is but I get all giddy inside when I know I am going to one. One of my best friends Meaghan invited me down to her house to go to the St.Mary's carnival in her town this past weekend. I haven't been to a carnival in ages, and we had so much fun. We played games, went into this crazy fun house (the slide on the way down kicked my butt, I have a huge burn on my arm) and ate a lot of great food.
I love the appearance of the moon in some of these photos, it just adds to the greatness of everything. I remember being younger, and going to carnivals/fairs and feeling so overwhelmed by everything going on around me. The lights, the smells, the music, everything is so intoxicating, and magical. My favorite rides are the carousel and the ferris wheel, and unfortunately I didn't ride either, but I did have fun regardless.
It's so nice to be doing things and try to get the most out of the summer. A few weeks ago I gave in to being tired and stayed in the whole weekend. I quickly realized I was going to be wasting my summer away if I did that. I must admit I have been pretty bitter about giving up my weekends, but I am trying to make the best of the time I have left. Although it leaves me a little tired, it's worth it. School starts the end of August, which is going to be here so soon! Things with work are still somewhat up in the air, but we'll see what happens, I am trying as hard as I can not to stress about it.
I hope you all had a great, relaxing weekend, and I am excited for what July has to offer. I have a lot of exciting things going on for this little blog and I can't wait to share everything with you guys.
