Date: August 18th 2017

Hello lovelies,

It's our annual double issue, as we disappear into festival land for two weeks (we'll try to do one more blast next week, but depends on signal availability from the road). It's pretty slow around town these last few weeks of August, but enough is still happening to warrant leaving the house.

We won't be able to remind you of our big Anniversary coming up, but please buy your tickets sooner than later: we could really use accurate head counts for food ordering. Also, we're down to two bedrooms in the mansion: the master suite and the double. Photos are on our event page, and you need to email us directly to reserve.
