one of the things i love about my neighborhood is the secret network of sneaky little pedestrian pathways. it’s a hilly area, so these hidden stairwells make it much more convenient for getting around. whenever i stumble upon another shortcut, i always feel like a little kid, having discovered some entryway into another world. and this time of year, they are particularly pleasant since the springtime flowers and vines and weeds are taking over. the light is usually quite harsh in this spot, but as we passed by early saturday morning on the way to the farmers market, the light was just right, so we stopped to take a few photos.
the weather was nice, so i took the opportunity to get dressed up in my most festive farmer’s market garb and pulled on my new lauren moffatt top and skirt. both are constructed of a lightweight linen, which kept me cool as a cucumber on a warm weekend day. after stocking up on summer squash at the farmer’s market, we headed to the greek festival with free tickets in our pockets (a gift from one of brendan’s clients). i’d never been to a greek festival, so it was quite the treat! we got to peek inside the stunning greek orthodox cathedral, and were treated to epic lamb sammiches and loukoumades. a little old lady even stopped to compliment me on my crochet top, which pretty much made my day!
