Yesterday my friend and I hit the streets of a local town and enjoyed the lovely fall day.
Something about wandering outside with leaves littered along the streets makes me feel so warm and full of life. I had the most wonderful day, and fall continues to make me swoon. There were plenty of photo ops, and naturally I had to take part.
I’m not sure what’s going on the last photo, my face is clearly facing the wrong way. This is definitely my kind of girl though, having two of the same outfit. I also ran into Gigi, and by ran into I mean I superimposed her face into the hole next to mine so I wouldn’t be alone.
I also made some new friends.
The only downside was not being able to find any vegan treats. Only one bakery had a slab of cake (only one option) but I didn’t have cash and that’s all they accepted. I went into every cafe/bakery in attempts to find something. While rounding a corner to another cafe, we saw some local hippies dancing at an intersection. My friend called them crazy, I called them intriguing. So…I went and danced for 19 seconds with no shame.
I don’t know what compelled me to do this, but it was liberaring!! What I do know is that my dancing skills are zero (I was trying to mimic that lady) and this lady had the hairiest armpits I have ever seen. Once I saw that I ran the other way. Dance on my friends!
We ended our afternoon at a coffee shop that was connected to a wine bar with live music. I swooned so hard over the guy singing. His voice was like a combination of Fergie and Jesus. Inside the adorable coffee shop I saw the most adorable sign. I want.
Q: Do you like wandering cute local towns?

We had such an AMAZING DAY YESTERDAY!!! Grinding up on those hippies like we do poles at the club… Splashing around in the leaves telling spiders they can SUCK IT – we are going to cause an earthquake of their home…. Transforming into sexy witches, aliens and Frankensteins….. Man, this must be what it feels like to be in a movie starring Lindsey Lohan!

Pegasus Coffee looks like a dream come true kind of place.
And I loooooove the video. Dance on, folks. Dance on.
kathy @ vodka and soda
i love fall leaves on the ground too and wandering in adorable towns. one a long time ago (probably when i was drunk), this guy was dancing in the middle of the sidewalk for no reason so i joined right in! it was awesome!
kelly @ racesrepsramblings
Wow. All I have to say is that witch photo is amazing. Just amazing. haha!! Looks like so much fun and a great way to celebrate FALL! 🙂
That coffee shop looks so cute, love it!! And my dear you are a wonderful dancer (;
Change of Pace
Pegasus Coffee looks incredible! Glad you had such a nice day- you look happy!
hahaha Love that video. I have to say I would run at the sight of those arm pits too…ICK!!
Davida @The Healthy Maven
omg that picture of you and gigi is beyond!!! I dance by myself on the busy streets of toronto regularly…occasionally someone throws me some change. Anything for a little extra cash you know?
Oh dear Lord that is amazing, I am legit jealous of your free change.
The foliage looks GORGEOUS out there by you lady! It’s been ‘seattle-like’ all week here. misty AMs & i think the sun has peaked its face all of 10 min since monday.
that sign is so perfect, i need that as well. i’m going to a coffee/wine bar tonight. it wont be as fun as the one you saw though cause it’s on a busy college campus. bleghh
What a fun day! I would have totally danced with the hippies too. Why not, right?
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
That witch picture is basically the definition of working it — OW OW! And your mention of the lady’s hairy armpits reminds me of a time I was riding a bus in Warsaw and a lady with hairy pitskies got on board and stood right over me holding the pole. Omg I couldn’t look away — you could have literally braided it! Eventually I offered her my seat because I just couldn’t handle it anymore…
AHH I would have died..and then moved. HAHA!
You. Are. My. HERO!!! Dancing with strangers?? (And doing a better job, I might add?) AMAZING! Your picture with the frog reminds me of high school… There was a 3-year-old’s carousel outside of one of our local grocery stores, and I climbed on as an 18-year-old while my friends snapped pictures. One of the best memories! 🙂

I love wandering around cute little towns! Yet another thing we could do together if we lived closer. 😦 Also, that coffee house looks amazing! So charming and picturesque!
HAHAHAHAHAHH i love you, a lot. And I want to live in that leafy building with you.. it’s a beaut!
LOL to the dance video with the hippies. You rock! And I love all of these fall pictures. My favorite pictures from high school were always in the fall months. The leaves just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! And I want my entire house to be covered in autumn colored leaves… I wonder if that’s an option when building a home….?
Heather @ HeatherRunsFast.com
You just made my week with that hippie dance video. MADE.MY.WEEK. Those leaves make me so jealous! Currently (at 6:38PM) it’s 85 degrees. No bueno! I can’t believe you couldn’t find anything vegan… guess that’s the downside to small towns… they aren’t always “up with the times” haha. SUch a fun day!
Okay I love everything about this post! Your yoga with the locals, that adorable building with the ivy (want!) and dancing with the hippies!!! hahaha love it!
Haha I love that you have no shame, it’s brilliant! You remind me a lot of one of my best friends at uni 🙂 Sounds like you had such a great day, it’s always fun to have days out with friends. Those fall leaves photos are lovely!
Um…you have to boogie down when it’s Jamaroquai playing! Just realized that reference is almost 20 years old *sigh*. Anyway, this entire post is what makes me love your blog so much! Thanks for the inspiration. The days here are starting to be perfect fall weather and it’s time to go exploring.
Christina Does It All
Baha, I adore you! We would be the greatest of friends if we just lived a TEENSY bit closer. And we would dance with hippies together and such.
Luv What You Do
Yes, I love it!
And all of your freestyle walking is cracking me up. Hooray for fall!
Hahahahaha that’s awesome!!!!
I’m the same way with the Fall weather, it makes me all warm inside and all giddy.
Best time of year.
Your day sounds absolutely wonderrful. I would like to live in that building as well.
OMG I LOVEEEEE YOUUUUUUUU!! I wanna dance with you on the street! hahaha I absolutely love it. This town is beautiful and I definitely want to go here one day. Ahh, I feel just like you when it comes to fall. Right now all the leaves are covering the streets and it just makes you feel SO content. Can’t help but smile! Looks like you had an amazing day – glad to see you so happy! 😀
Jan @ Sprouts n Squats
Looks like you had such a great time!! Which I’m so glad for 🙂
I’m currently on holiday in Sydney with my boyfriend and we are exploring that!
Arman @ thebigmansworld
Sounds like you had a blast- I love hole in the face pop ups…and that frog…I need it in my garden for no reason whatsoever.
Have a great weekend buddy!

I’m so inspired, I’m going to dance with some cows today.
bahhahahhah this is probably one of my favorite posts ive read in a long time. such a perfect day! those pics of you in the cut-out characters are amazing… i love those things and always jump in and want photos. i love that you danced with hippies and it was a liberating kind of dance- those are the best.
this man’s voice- combo of fergie and jesus- yes. i approve. i love all the fall leave pics!!!
The leaves are so pretty! I can’t wait to see fall again in oregon!
I’m glad you danced with abandon, publicly with the local hippies. That might be me one day, although I’m well acquainted with my razor, and I plan on keeping it that way.
These are great pictures, and it looks like a picture perfect day, minus cake. Maybe you should move there and open a vegan bakery. The kind where you let your cats hang out in the shop.
Maximus aka Max
I would like to hang out in your vegan bakery and be the official taste tester. Meow.
Oh emmm Efffff Geee. This is the best comment I have ever received. Max, you’re welcome in my bakery anytime you would like.
Bahahah I love your dancing skills and super strange cut out face pictures! NO WONDER YOU WEREN’T TEXTY ALL DAY. YOU WERE CHEATING ON ME WITH GIGI. OKay but for reals you look so happy. Your footwear makes me question if you are indeed a hippie as well hahah
I have many other qualities and tendencies that might make you question…perhaps I will share those with the world sometime. HAHA.
Melanie @ HappyBeingHealthy
The fall leaves look beautiful and I’m loving ALL of your pictures!! I especially LOVE that Frankenstein one! And kudos to you for dancing in the street with strangers. I love it!!!
hahahahhahahhah omg….I totally would have danced with them too! So much fun 🙂
Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body
I like roaming period. It doesn’t matter if it is a cute local town, but all the better if it is! I love that you joined in the dance, I guess there has got to be something freeing about dancing on the street! Loving the fall photos!
Those leaves are gorgeous! They look like they’re fake because the colors are so beautiful. Even if you’re roaming around a local town, it’s still so much fun! Personally I think dancing is quite freeing, so I see no shame there. 🙂 You’ve got some moves girl!

I want that sign!!! Ok, I was sort of a hippy, but my armpits were never hairy, but I did like dancing.. still do, but never on a street corner:D You had your own little flash mob!! xx
I love wandering around small local towns and just getting lost. I like going alone though so I can really take my time and not worry about someone else.
why do you have to live so far away??!?! 😦 I live adjacent to a perfectly delightful small town just made for wandering. you should come wander it with me. 🙂
Ja @Ja on the RUN
Those are gorgeous gorgeous pictures of the fall leaves! 🙂 I love Fall Season! 🙂
I can tell that you are fun person! 🙂 Those pics are sooo cute and the dancing video is fun!
Meghan @ fitnesscrEATures
Good goodness could you be any more adorable with you dancing??! And all your picture taking?
I will speak for you – NO. No you could not. LOVE IT! Seems like a fabulous time, and I remember Bainbridge! Ahh! <3<3 I'm swooning for fall weather too! IT'S THE BEST! ALL THE SEASONS SHOULD BE FALL!
Those are the best kind of days – going out with no plan and seeing where the day takes you. Who would of thought…dancing with hippies and bullfrog rides!!! Perfect combo – like Fergie and Jesus!
That video of you dancing with the hippies? Epic. Haha. Pretty much made my day. I wish we could hang out in real life… I promise I shave my armpits!
Looks like so much fun :D! I love exploring towns like this :)!
I LOVE LEAVES. and the leaves on the building. holy mackerel. gorgeous. yoga with the locals. too cute. hairy armpits …….. fun. hahaha
Melissa @ Al Forno Mementos
