On Sunday, we joined our New York friends for something I had been looking forward to since last August when I first found out about this event, the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island. It was all I had hoped it would be and more. The 1920's are my all-time favorite era and probably the main reason I decided to be a history major and want to be a history teacher. This was my scene, I was able to dress like a flapper while sipping on champagne cocktails in a park and not be judged, but rather embraced. We had such a great time listening to fun music, people watching, having drinks and relaxing. Bill Cunningham even sneakily snapped some photos of my friend and I so perhaps we shall make The NY Times??? A girl could hope, right. Next time (yes, there will be a next time) I want to go a little early to make it for the dance lessons!
