I did make it back in one piece. I never puked. I didn’t rip any vintage. I got some dancing in. I only bought one dress.
This all seems like I was on the winning team for sure. Viva is damn exhausting. I will say the best part about it was meeting and talking to new people. I made so many new friends it was like summer camp (without the creepy Christian Rock songs) The food was just as bad.
I didn’t totally follow the Survival Guide – and got struck down with an epic Migraine. My girl Ruby left the car show early to TAKE CARE OF ME. She is all sorts of amazing. So: more naps, more water, more booze for next year. People TOTALLY annoyed me. Damn, I should have listened to Sonia.
I finally manned up and started to carry the beast master (my camera) around and that really turned the weekend around for me. Taking portraits makes my day. My game plan for next year is to buy a MUCH LIGHTER camera bag, and just constantly shoot. Shoot PHOTOS until my arms fall off.
This post is just pretty much going to be all photos – and if you follow my Instagram (you better be following me) you have already seen a few of these shots. I will try not to repeat any (until the Viva Vol 2 post!)
On with the show!
I will post the rest tomorrow!
