Six years ago on August 3rd we took this dark photo in a field in Indiana at a Radiohead concert. Chris was turning twenty-two and I couldn't believe how old he was. Notice both of our "cute" hoodies. His was from a cheap store in Spain and I'm wearing an "Italia" sweatshirt. How college of us.
And six years later, we are still doing the same thing. Because we're the lost boys of Never Neverland refusing to grow up... Or something like that.
Chris is actually just a big music festival kind of guy and every year on his birthday I like to pretend I am too.
He goes to all three days of Lolla but I can usually only handle one. I'm just not cool enough to listen to that much music without getting a little antsy or feeling like I need a shower.
Although I will say yesterday was a really good day with a lot of awesome music. My favorites were Chromeo, The Avett Brothers and Kings of Leon. All three were amazing. The Avett Brothers might just be moving into my top five at the moment. I'm just a sucker for a banjo.
And then it started to rain and things got a bit muddy. This is a gross photo but I need you to see what we were standing in. And what others were rolling in. There might be a pun there, see if you can find it.
And this is what the train ride looked like. When we got home I had mud in places where mud shouldn't be. I guess you could say we all got lolla'd.
On that note, does anyone have a hot dog costume I can borrow?
