May 2018 Spotify Playlist

I couldn’t let the month of May slip away without curating my monthly Spotify Playlist! You’ll definitely notice some more summery, surf-rock vibes in this month’s compilation. I can’t believe it’s almost June and for obvious reasons, we are really excited for this summer! Let me know what you've been listening to in the comments.

Colonial Times at the Living History Park

One of our favorite events of the year was this past weekend in North Augusta. We enjoyed all the new re-enactors at Colonial Times at the Living History Park this past Saturday. My favorite new addition were the grave robbers. It amazes me at just how convincing these actors are. They really commit to their parts and it makes the event a wonderful learning experience.

Birthday and Anniversary Week

We decided a few weeks back that we wanted to go to Manuel's Bread Cafe for our anniversary dinner.

My mother-in-law was sweet enough to gift us with some money to go out to eat and celebrate our third year of marriage which made it an even better deal!

Colonial Times - Living History on Film

I'm playing catch-up on sharing some film scans I got back from The Darkroom. These are from our visit to Colonial Times: Under the Crown at the Living History Park in North Augusta, SC from back at the end of April. It was a fairly cloudy day but other than a little graininess, I'm fairly happy with how these turned out. Kodak film captures greens and reds so well!

Colonial Times: Under the Crown

One of my favorite events each spring is Colonial Times: Under the Crown. Held annually at the Living History Park (just a few blocks from our house), Colonial Times is a unique way to experience the history of the area by taking a step back in time to the American Revolution. A few times a year the public park is transformed into a trade show and fair filled with reenactors and skilled tradesmen.
