Sometimes you do things that make you feel small, only in a good way. Sometimes, after being caged and breathing filtered air and only seeing the sun through windows, sometimes you get out and feel it on your face. A brief respite. A moment of brilliance where you're reminded why we're here.
A few weeks ago I took my mom to a sunflower festival and it was goddamn magical.
The field we went to was large enough that everyone was able to social distance and spend a few hours out in the sunshine with these big beautiful flowers. It was on the side of a mountain, so I could look down into the valley and the sky seemed so vast. I highly recommend wearing a dress made out of a shower curtain- it's very lightweight and moisture-wicking in hot weather.
We've been struggling emotionally. Someone that we really love was diagnosed with cancer, and I've lost a few friends this year due to the virus and cancer and other things like that. It felt amazingly good to get outside for a little while and get lost among the flowers.
I didn't realize how many colors sunflowers came in, actually. Some with dark centers, some with light centers, some red and orange and yellow. It was truly inspiring.
Hope you enjoyed this little interlude of joy. Outfit coming on Thursday.
Until next time - xoxo Meghan
