Happy August.

Thursday, August 1, 2013

In honor of a new month - the sunniest and the summeriest - a few photos of an especially sublime warm-weather adventure. As I mentioned earlier this week, I spent a day and a night camping in Brooklyn recently with a big group of friends (and friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends). There were campfires and yoga, a silent disco and late-night s'mores. It was just like summer camp. Only better. A lot better.


A highlight (literally): launching candlelit lanterns into the sky and watching them fade into tiny, hazy dots above the water. 

   

All in all, the season's been sweet. What's been the best part of yours?

I've never been camping before (glamping doesn't count, I've been told), but this looks like so much fun!! The best part of my summer is going to happen in a week when I'm in Ojai and Big Sur!

That looks and sounds like it was a great time. I love the last picture of you launching your balloon.

This summer has been great, I agree. I think my favourite part was taking a trip to the west coast. It was so pretty there.

HAPPY! shoko, you look so happy! :) those lanterns are so dreamy and probably feel like they hold so much promise when you let them into the air.

there is no better feeling than hope, promise and happiness on a summer night.

This has been a pretty dull summer. I am hoping next summer will provide a little more excitement.

Shoko said...

Brianna, I'm sorry to hear that! I hope things look up soon!

adorable Shoko!
I always wanted to light up paper lanterns too!
I guess since I am in Japan now, should take advantage of the Fireworks seasons and play with sparklers here!
