In pictures

Wow. That’s the only word I can think of to describe the response I received to my last post. The Sleeping Souls, wonderful guys that they are, read it and thought it summed up the atmosphere surrounding the Frank Turner family well enough that they shared it with their fans. And then Frank himself shared it. That post reached so many people, I can scarcely believe it. Over a thousand people have read it in the last week, and the feedback has been overwhelming and incredibly touching. Apparently I’m not the only one who has found a home with this incredible group. I’m so glad I was able to give voice to something that means so much to so many. For any of you who are still here because of that post, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope to meet all of you in person some day. ❤

It occurred to me, when thinking of how on earth I was going to follow a post like THAT, that while I alluded to all the fun I’ve had over the last few months, I haven’t actually told you what that entailed. If you’ve been following along at all, you might suspect that it has something to do with music, traveling, and/or food. And you would be right. On all counts. So rather than give you a detailed recap of everything that’s gone on since mid-August, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

(All photos by me unless otherwise noted.)

And my timing with this post if rather opportune – I’ll be spending most of the next two weeks on the road again, in search of adventure, music, and inspiration (and, of course, good food). So I hope you haven’t gotten tired of pictures like the ones above, because there’s lots more to come. 🙂
