mississippi street fair
Never have I seen so many moms pushing strollers, tree-huggers wearing dreadlocks, street-vendors preparing greasy noodles, bands playing upbeat music, or photographers taking pictures than I did at the Mississippi Street Fair. Our apartment sat in the middle of the chaos—perfect for bathroom breaks and taking breathers from the crowds and sweltering sun. With a group of friends, Jeff and I wandered up and down the street eating teriyaki dishes and mini-cupcakes and drinking strawberry lemonade for six whole hours. Whew!
