That Time When 1000 of You Came to My House (Nest Fest Photos)

10-22-16-nestfestselects0046

Y’all, I am STILL recovering from our first ever Nest Fest. It was the best day ever. After living here for 3 years, we loved being able to use this old sawmill property for something fun and pretty! After writing in this online space for 9 years, it was a dream to get to host a get-together for you!

I asked Barrie to capture the day in photos and she did a great job. Here are a million photos of the day because I love them all–we had 50 vendors, 5 different types of musicians (see them all here) and perfect weather.

I can’t thank you all enough for coming out–from Florida, Michigan, Texas, Illinois, even–CALIFORNIA! What in the world?! All the way to little Midland, North Carolina! It was SUCH a joy, a huge amount of work, and a pleasure to get to meet some of you who have been reading along here on our pretty little corner of the internet!

We’re leaning towards probably, maybe, possibly, yes!, I’m-not-sure? doing this again next year–this year was a huge success and also ton of work that we never could have done without an amazing group of friends like 25 friends that aren’t even in this photo.
