Well hello there!!!

I’m super excited to start talking about this today because I’ve been waiting to share about this for the longest time. I talked on Monday about having done something last weekend that I had been waiting for months to do and it was attend the Dirty Dancing Festival in Lake Lure, North Carolina!

I just found out that this was even a thing earlier this year, around April I think, on facebook. I told Andrew about it and he booked us a room at The Lodge on Lake Lure that same day. We’ve always loved watching that movie together so it was something we knew we had to try at least once. And the fact that it was only a 3 hour drive away?! Umm hello…amazing!! It was such a great experience all around, I loved it. I was so excited to share with you all so I started writing a post that turned out I could break into three separate posts altogether it was so long. ha! It was a super event filled weekend and I took a TON of photos. Except a photo of us in front of the festival sign of course, but more on that later.

The photo above is a panorama of the festival on Friday evening, the night of the movie screening. This was taken right when we got there, before they had put the screen up. Yes. it was that packed before they even put the screen up and then it filled all the way up to the other tent up there on the left. Apparently it was the largest turn out for the movie that they have had in the 6 years they’ve been doing the festival! It was super cool to be a part of something so new, especially in honor of something so fun that is so universally loved. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love every  smooth talkin’ line Patrick Swayze recites in that movie? He’s so cool, I feel like a lot of men can sit through that movie without too much grumbling even.

I’m so excited for y’all to see how much fun we had I just want to publish the posts one right after the other right now! But that would probably be a little overwhelming, no? So I just drafted this teaser post real quick, muahahahahah!

See you next week, friends. Have a great weekend!
