A Tree Grows in Harrisburg

Sunday night, Mark and I drove up to Harrisburg to see Spirit Family Reunion and Black Prairie. Harrisburg isn’t far from where we live, but I’ve never been, so I was excited to have the chance to wander around the city a little before the show.

Of course, everything doesn’t always work out as planned. When we arrived early we realized pretty quick that the whole ‘wander around the city’ thing wasn’t going to happen. We were pretty far from downtown, with nothing much in sight but a brewery (our destination) a few vacant buildings, and one little tree on a roof.

(A tree on a roof?)

But it all worked out. We wandered around the area anyway, and the show was great — so was the brewery’s beer.

By the end of the night my feet were crumpling beneath me, but (as the story usually goes with shoes you love) it was totally worth it.

And I’m glad to have had the chance to see a little bit of Harrisburg — even if it was just a few vacant buildings and one scrappy little tree.

    I am totally in love with your jacket. I’ve been on the hunt for a new leather jacket. Hoping to find one when we are in London…
