So, I took a paint-splattered selfie for proof:

My bestie Hannah rocked the painted lady look too:

Sported pink locks for a few days after the festival (apparently the paint doesn’t wash out very easily):

I was captivated by all of the dahlias everywhere:

Had a chance to cross a few things off my bucket list, like getting a lesson in block printing:

…and getting an ornate henna tattoo:

Snapped this photo with my favorite travel companion (Hannah and I traveled to Africa together last year…you can see photos here, here and here):


There were beautiful details everywhere we looked:
