An Experiment in Awesome:

Jasmine of An Experiment in Poverty is one of my favourite bloggers. I think she's great and I'm so excited that she's joining in the Gypsying! Thanks Jasmine! -Laura

summers in southern california start late. it's our penance for having brilliant weather for the rest of the year.

some might say that the beginning of summer is the fourth of july, but i don't think summer starts until the orange county fair begins.

every year, i go right before the sun sets.

every year, i eat way too much greasy food (have YOU ever tried australian battered potatoes with nacho cheese and ranch?? 'cause they're delicious.).

every year, i spend way too much money on sketchy rides that were delivered to the fairgrounds in boxes.

every year, i laugh at the poor fools who have willingly submitted themselves to the power of the hypnotist.

and every year, i have the most amazing time.

there's something for everyone at the fair. it gives everyone the chance to remember what it feels like to be a child. and isn't that what summer's all about? trying to capture the essence of childhood summers long gone, but never forgotten.

I love Jasmine too! She's such a fun happy girl.
What a fun blog idea this is. I was once stopped by a man in Italy wanting to take photos of my feet. I have no idea where they ended up but I hope they are happily posted on a blog like yours. :)

awwww! thanks guys!

there's my feet! i seriously considered letting levi photo shop in a picture of my feet with no dark nail polish and with cuter shoes. but then it wouldn't be real, and we can't have that. or can we??
