when i said i wanted my life to be like moonrise kingdom i did not mean i wanted it to constantly rain

Lots has been happening the past week (so this post is kind of super long)! The other day was a good friend's birthday, and tt was filled with yummy food, wonderful people, and records. The party had felt like it lasted all weekend even though it was just a couple of hours long. L.M. took lots of photos (see above), and I'm sort of in love with all of them (I hope you guys do, too). Well, the post before this one was my 100th post. It's not really a big deal to me, but I'm proud of myself for keeping up with this blog for so long! Also, the lovely Yasmin interviewed me for her blog, so check it out!! For the past two weeks it has been raining cats and dogs, and I actually miss the heat of the sun (it's cool, but nasty-ass humid lately). All of the random down pours remind me of Moonrise Kingdom (because srsly it's been raining that hard here), and I always forget how much I love that movie. It's probably Wes Anderson's most "overrated" and famous film, but it is for a reason (because it's perfect and makes me want to run away and live in Rhode Island)! And I just got home from a loooooong day with my mom. We took my Grandma to the airport, and then kept finding detours on the way home (Denny's, Home Depot, thrift stores, etc), and I found SOOOO many cool things (like vintage wedding dresses, 1950s coffee maker, vinage slip, vintage magnets, and much more)! Also, my antique booth is looking super fly lately. I'm almost ready to open the other two rooms ("whaaaat there's more rooms, but Tessa your antique booth is already so big" YEAH I KNOW- it's overwhelming but i love it), and you can check it out on insta if you're feeling crazy. Oh, and I also got a splinter from a cash register from the 1800s, so minus the fact that it hurts like a son of a bitch it's pretty cool (i guess).
