Sometimes people wonder why I wear ginormous flowers on my head all the time. The day trip I took to Shelburne Falls yesterday confirmed the two main reasons: it makes me feel more like myself, and it gets positive reactions from people everywhere I go.

I figured I’d wear my biggest flower crown to visit the Bridge of Flowers–because when in Rome, dress like the scenery, right? I got so many compliments from strangers, and even had two different people ask if they could take my picture.

While out and about on Friday, I ran into my puppy friend Mika, who is literally the most adorable fluffball ever. She even has her own Facebook page!

For the evening of my birthday, I went to a party held by my friend Emily, who was visiting from out of town. I went full-out girly-punk both in celebration of my birthday and because I knew that Emily, as a fellow punk-clothing-lover, would appreciate it.
