“Hippie Things”

Raw / organic fruits and veggies, all natural beauty supplies (made from goat’s milk), creative arts corners, $5 massages from a licensed massage therapist, and live music were just some of the great vendor options available. SO awesome, I even convinced mom to get her 1st massage ever. She loved it ^_^ .. Just wanted to share a quick personal video from a wonderfully peaceful, fun day.
