This past weekend I went back to Greenville because my Aunt Sheradee and her three kids (ages 5-10) were visiting my parents’ house. I hardly get to see them since we moved from Oklahoma – generally about once a year.
However, we used to live two doors down from each other, so when we get back together it will always be like nothing has ever changed. I am so grateful to have a close family, even though we no longer live in the same state.
The kids are so awesome – seriously, I can only hope to have kids as kind, smart, and funny as they are one day. They had me cracking up all weekend.
Sunday we decided to go to Falls Park in downtown Greenville, where we had a nice lunch at Smoke on the Water (my family’s fave) and showed the kids the falls.
Steven wasn’t with me this weekend, so Harper stood in as B-Side’s photographer – and I think she did a splendid job.
I decided to wear this Who What Wear for Target midi dress – one I picked up a little while ago for my friend Kaeli’s graduation party. I don’t think this exact dress is still available online, but I did find a few lookalikes for you.
Though I love this dress and it has held up well, the fabric doesn’t lend itself to doing much else than standing, unless you want a billion wrinkles in it. My mom was nice and tried to steam it, but it still ended up getting wrinkled the moment I sat down somewhere. If you guys have any remedies for this feel free to comment below – I need all the help I can get.
For the track I picked Daniel Norgren, a swedish Folk & Americana singer-songwriter I discovered through Vinyl Me Please, my favorite subscription service. They featured him a while ago before I was a member of the club and they’re now selling one of his albums on a special Northern Lights vinyl. I found the pressing for sale in their store and was curious (albeit I will admit it was because I’m obsessed with cool colored vinyl).
I began listening to his album, The Green Stone, and immediately loved him. There are those albums that you listen to and you instantly feel like you’ve been listening to it for years – this was how I felt. His music has endless heart that will simultaneously provoke deep introspection and a warm, blissful happiness.
