Bridges Over Lancaster County


I'm briefly back in Lancaster, Pennsylvania--the city I called home for a few years for one of my best friend's wedding. It's a too short trip to the States that I'm trying to pack much into; first and most importantly was this past weekend's wedding. It was a pretty spectacular event with flower crowns, a vintage car, perfect weather, and dancing under twinkle lights wrapped around towering evergreens. We were housemates along with two other girls in a beautiful old house and I remember our first days in our new home quite well. The awkwardness of getting to know each other and the lighthearted jokes about our shared spinsterhood. We were all single, some of us more optimistically so than others (I firmly believed I would never marry and end up a hermit in the woods with only a wolfhound for company), and now every single roommate from that house is married! It's wild how much changes in a few short years. Even in my short days of visiting here I've found the city much changed; an old walking bridge is gone, new buildings have popped up around the city and other ones seem unrecognizable with a fresh coat of paint. Still a few things remain unchanged--a beautiful covered bridge from the 1800s stands strong and timeless, and friendships that continue to span miles and milestones.

  4. Beautiful outfit and I love how it coordinates with the setting. The purse and shoes are my fave though but I'm an accessory junkie.

  6. Love this blog post! Don't worry, I'm sure we will all get married in the end, exactly like in a good Hollywood movie! Going home is always an intense journey. Your pics are amazing as well. Need to start following your blog!

    1. Hi Ester, I am actually married--have been for more than two years now. Sorry if that was unclear in the post; although I don't think there's anything wrong with being a single hermit living in the woods either though! I think sometimes the single life is underrated/valued; it's not just a fate for wicked stepsisters, sometimes it's quite the happy life :)

  9. You ending up alone is a preposterous thought to me. Just from skimming this blog, anyone can tell you're too interesting and fun for that to happen! I understand all too well how the echo chamber of introversion can lead to such assumptions, but in that respect, you never had anything to worry about.

  10. I'm from Lancaster! The city has really transformed into the cutest of places. I'm sure you've had more of your share of drinking coffee at the Prince Street Cafe? :)

    1. Yes! I've been to Prince a few times but I'm actually not a coffee drinker so I didn't go to too many cafes around town :)

  11. For a minute I thought this was an old post! Lovely to hear of your visit to Central PA! I live in Lebanon County but have visited Lancaster City many a time. I have been following your blog for some years now and wished I would have "bumped" on you when you still lived around these parts! All the best to you!
