half a day in winnipeg.

8.10.2012


August has been kind to us. It's been keeping us busy, but the kind of busy you wish you could always be. Yesterday we drove out to the city. First, supper at deer + almond. We people-watched at our window seat (i think Winnipeg may be The City of Beautiful People) and made up life stories and situations for each passerby. Second, a James Vincent McMorrow concert that I am still tongue-tied about. All I know is that this made my sister and I cry and live music is really just the best. 

on the calendar for august
