A day at the zoo

Baltimore Zoo with my Aunt Trish, baby Trevor, and my brother Michael was  really nice way to spend a summer Friday. The weather was perfect. The Zoo has changed a little since I’ve last been (maybe 3 years ago). Apparently, they no longer get funding from the county. I hear a lot of people are going to the DC zoo instead. The prairie dogs, giraffes and elephants were my favorites. Trevor was sooo well behaved! I love my family 🙂 I hope the new penguin exhibit is finished by next summer!

The zoo does make me a little bit sad, but I guess it’s all the animals know. At least, that’s what I tell myself.

Giraffe!

Giraffe!

Weeee Mad Decent block party in Philly with all of the best bass-loving friends was insane. After seeing Major Lazer in Miami at Ultra, I knew that the dance party would be wild to say the least. Plus, the venue was pretty awesome. Although it’s on the smaller side, at River Stage at Penn’s Landing  you can see the water right behind and to the sides of the stage. Seeing girls in bikinis getting down on speed boats to the music was hilarious. There’s a few light poles which made for prime viewing if you could climb your way up. I was up for a little bit. When a dancer who was on stage for DJ Sega came up I figured I should get down… haha.

I took a disposable camera so I’ll definitely post some of those once developed. Diplo is a genius as a producer and entertainer. Between the hamster ball roll, the pint powder explosion, and of course express yourself twerk-off on stage. There really is no party like a Major Lazer dance party. Dillion Francis was also really good. Not sure who’s more attractive, him or Diplo/ Thomas Pentz (may or may not have done some stalking i mean research…)

My body hurts and my ears are still ringing but man oh man it was well worth it. I can’t wait to reunite yet again next weekend in Atlantic City for one of my best friends going away party.

Cheaper than therapy

One of the at least 10 butterflies I see on a typical morning.

“Stop and smell the roses,” or in my case zinnias, lemon basil, tansy and mountain mint. Working at a nursery is hard work. It’s more often than not hot as hell, theres bugs and insects and creatures and bee stings, heavy lifting, back breaking, hole digging work to be done. But at Belvedere Farm our 7 acres of flowers start from seed. Seeds are sown, nurtured, transplanted, nurtured some more, cut, and arranged by about 10 sets of hands. Then theres pricing, market preparation, side work and lots of other jobs to be done. But thats what makes it rewarding. You get a beautiful, hand grown with sun water and sweat product that really is cheaper than therapy.

Flowers make people happy.
