I don’t know about you all, but I am a huge fan of festivals and fairs. Anything that brings a town together with tents full of merchandise and unique foods from various areas. I love exploring new vendors and trying new things.
Let’s just add indulging in food festivals under my list of favorite things to do.
This past weekend, my room mate and I decided to explore one of our favorite areas: New Hope and Lambertville. We desperately needed to celebrate finishing our final undergraduate classes ever. (Did I mention I’m graduating soon??? Send help….) We were just walking through the town, and crossed the bridge into Lambertville, and stumbled upon festivities! It was called Shad Fest. This festival consumed most of the cute and tiny little streets of Lambertville. Tents stretched for blocks and blocks. Eventually after walking for a bit, we came onto the food section. Being a college student, and solely eating at the dining commons on our campus, the idea of food coming from the outside world THRILLS us. We went ham.
Taking time for ourselves to have a little fun before rushing back for our studies was just the necessary medicine we needed. If you happen to be in the midst of finals week like I am, just remember that everything is temporary. So give it your all and it’ll be over before you know it!
This is a quote I’ve come to live by, which I feel really sums up my outlook on life. And it is also the quote I will be putting on my graduation cap for commencement.
Until next time~
