A friend posted this link on Facebook and I couldn’t help but smile as I read through the list. I think it is excellent advice and is full of valid tips that are sometimes overlooked. Now that I am 24, I am starting to figure some of these things out…but am still learning a lot too!
Last weekend while I was visited home, I checked out the sunflower field at Buttonwood’s Farm in Griswold, CT. Myself (and my mom) could not get over just how beautiful this natural display is! It is definitely a hidden gem of the quiet corner.
I made a few panoramas- created them using Photoshop and a somewhat steady hand- and took plenty of other pictures as well.

So this was my first year at the Newport Folk Festival and all I can say is next year I will be back. I went Sunday (the last day) and got to see a few of my favorites: Lord Huron, The Lumineers, and Beck. I also saw some new musicians I had yet to discover and some everyday people just jamming out on their instruments. Not only were the bands amazing, but the people were too. I have never seen so many people who appreciate life and just love music.
Overall it was an amazing first experience. Ford Adams is an awesome spot to have a concert and when the sun went down during Beck’s set, it couldn’t have gotten any better than that. So here are some pictures and some videos; I am just so glad I finally got to experience this. Next year I might have to go for all three days.
