I have friends who still manage to go to lots of music festivals every year even with 3 young children at home. The closest I will get to a summer festival is the Virginia Highlands Summerfest today here in Atlanta. It’s actually a lovely art festival with music and activities for the kids and VaHi is a beautiful part of town – very residential with gorgeous craftsman cottages and close to Piedmont Park. I remember going the year Hugh was born – it was our first proper trip out as a family of four – so I love going back when we remember what weekend it’s taking place!
I just Skyped with Mum and Dad and feel rather sad that I’m missing out on all the Diamond Jubilee festivities. The UK has both Monday and Tuesday off to celebrate and there are so many street parties and galas taking place – I do miss the UK at times like this. I was back last year for the pomp and ceremony of the Royal Wedding and loved it! In fact maybe I should be wearing my Union Jack tee today – I might just actually go and change now I’ve remembered it!:)
For now I’m wearing my AllSaints t-shirt from a couple of years ago, ornament orange JCrew chino shorts (4″ available online only), and AllSaints Bonny Cuban boot which is currently out of stock on the US site. To celebrate the Jubilee AllSaints are giving 20% off selected styles this weekend till Tuesday when you enter code JUBILEE at check out!
Long live the Queen!:)
