I know you ladies are out there, you're just hiding~!!! I'm trying to organize a little lolita meetup sometime before the end of this summer - I think it would be a great opportunity for all the lolitas in the area to spend some time and really get to know each other~
I'd like to do a casual picnic-style tea party, somewhere in downtown Burlington. I was thinking either Battery Park or the waterfront, because there's plenty of parking nearby and lots of room to spread out...plus, it's near Plattsburg, so maybe we can entice some out-of-state lolitas to come for the day? (pleasepleaseplease~~???) I will provide drinks and desserts, so if everyone could bring a small lunch for themselves that would be lovely.
I'm not sure exactly when I'd like to hold it, tentatively the weekend of the 29th, but because we're such a small group, I'm sure we can all work together and find a time best for everyone ^^
Also, definitely tell anyone else you can think of who might be interested, just let me know if you will be bringing a guest(s). I hope to see everyone soon~~!! ♥
UPDATE: The date has been decided; we will be having our picnic on Saturday the 29th. I've slightly changed the location - we are now meeting at Oakledge Park which is a little further south of the main waterfront. This gives us a little more privacy, more shade, and easy access to bathrooms haha. ALSO, for those of us who are adventurous, there is a beautiful little beach there...I know I will be bringing my bathing suit X3 If you think this is something you might be interested in, definitely bring yours too!! The lake has been perfect for swimming recently ^^
So, with that in mind, everyone has two options. You could drive yourself there individually at 1:30, or you could meet me and anyone else who chooses at my friend's apartment at 1:00 and then carpool down. For those of you who decide to drive yourself, it costs $5 to park and you should go to the FURTHEST parking lot. From there, we will be down the path close to the water (I'm sure we will be easy to spot heehee ^^).
No matter what you choose, can everyone who is planning to come please email me at missemmeline (at) gmail (dot) com (this is slightly different than my lj username, just to make sure everyone has the right spelling :S) ? I need to give everyone my phone number, directions to Oakledge (although Google maps works too) and directions to my friend's apartment. Also, I'd like to get a general headcount so I know how much of everything I need to bring. Please note your username in your email so I can keep everything together. And as always, feel free to bring along/tell as many people as you can think of!!
It has also been suggested that we go see Julie and Julia afterward, we can see how we feel and decide yes or no later in the afternoon :D
Can't wait to see everyone!
