Nostalgia

Outside Lands music festival is this weekend in San Francisco and here are seven ways to keep warm if you’re going. Be sure to check out the Luella food tent! I stopped by the restaurant the other day and the Chef was whipping up some delicious eats for all you concertgoers. Sadly, John and I aren’t going this year. [Side note: we also missed Phish when they were in town and John still won’t let it go. “Court, it’s so unlike me to miss Phish,” he stated last night with sad puppy eyes and Suzy Greenberg playing in the background. I can only imagine how he’ll feel this weekend. #phuck. This made me crack up by the way]. 

Clearly we need to step up our live music game. We did catch some live music in Nantucket at Cisco Brewery and the Chicken Box…the lead singer of this U2 cover band was epic and as my sister’s friend stated, “July wouldn’t be July without seeing Joshua Tree at the Box”. Music does wonders for the soul and as I lay here listening to Lana del Rey “Summertime Sadness”, freezing and insomnia-stricken in bed (so emo right now), I can’t help but feel nostalgic for our summer vacation to Nantucket. It came and went in the blink of an eye.

According to this New York Times article, nostalgia as it turns out, is quite good for you.

Nostalgia has been shown to counteract loneliness, boredom and anxiety. It makes people more generous to strangers and more tolerant of outsiders. Couples feel closer and look happier when they’re sharing nostalgic memories. On cold days, or in cold rooms, people use nostalgia to literally feel warmer.

Well, I’m cold and in a cold room. Would it be a crime to turn on the heat in August?? Looking through pictures from our trip to warm me up…TGIF.

We were in Nantucket when we found out about Prince George’s birth. I had just purchased a gift for a friend’s new baby and the wrapping paper served as a great trumpet to ring out the news through the cobblestone streets (it was early and I was over-served french toast from Black Eyed Susan’s).
