Beau and I hopped on the motorbike this morning with one mission: goats.

One of my favorite times of the year is fair time! I don’t know how I have missed it all these years, but this was my first time going to the Evergreen State Fair’s petting zoo. It was a little slice of heaven.

We had an ice cream cone full of food to feed them, but we learned after a while that everyone wanted the ice cream cone, probably because it was more interesting than the food they got every day.

The llama with the bad hair was my least favorite, he was the tallest and he was pretty much perfectly eye level to me. He kept following me around for the food, and I tried getting away from him which resulted in him taking a mouthful of my  hair. Never trust a guy with bad hair.

Other fair fun included pigs, sheep, cracking up at goats noises, a huge ice cream cone, and one of those curly fry bricks.


The countdown until next year’s fair begins now!




Professional lover of stories, the harmonica, goats and burritos. Constantly daydreaming about living in the country, ice cream and decorating. Inspired by beautiful writing, the PNW, Beyonce and kindness. I'm guaranteed to have hearts in my eyes when the lighting is just right and am totally in love with my beau named Beau, who I found in the middle of fall, my favorite season. I sleep in my makeup, grew up on grunge music, embrace imperfection and am pretty excited about the gift of waking up every morning with choice to kick butt and love every minute of this wild ride.
