It's been a while since I've blogged but I'm hoping I'll be better about it from now on... :)
I went to the Lantern Festival with my Boyfriend and one of my best friends last Saturday and let me tell you it was mesmerizing. I've been wanting to go since I've heard about the first time but could never make it for one reason or another... So this time I booked the tickets early and kept the day marked off in my busy calendar to make sure I was going to make it... It was absolutely beautiful even with a huge crowd... Luckily we got there early so we could pick our fireplace without any issues... And then it was waiting time... Luckily there were several food trucks and vendors to go check out... And if we didn't stand in line for the food we enjoyed our time around the fireplace just talking and relaxing... For anyone that knows me, the relaxing part doesn't happen too often for me... I'm usually always on the go so this was really enjoyable for me... After eating some good food we waited for it to get dark and for the announcer to let us know when we can light the lanterns... Unfortunately we couldn't really hear too much from the stage since we were so far away (my friend has been to the Lantern festival and cautioned us about how bad traffic gets when leaving the campus so we decided to sit at a fireplace closer to the exit... And let me tell you - she was right!! Leaving the Lantern Festival wasn't fun... Hopefully they can get that figured out next year)... Anyway, once we could see everyone close to the stage light their lanterns we decided to get going, too. Lucky for me my bf lit my lantern so that I can focus on taking pictures and video... I'll add some to this blog below... :) All in all it was an amazing experience that everyone should experience at least once!!
