Yesterday I was very close to Taylor Swift. Like I-Can-See-Her-Calf-Muscles close. And it was the most amazing feeling. After performances by Vance Joy, John Newman, and Ellie Golding, Taylor made her way onto the stage and announced that we were in a crowd of 65,000 people. I was in a group of only 4,000 who were lucky enough to be in the general admission pit closest to her. Waving our signs in the air and dancing the entire time, the three of us sang our hearts out to every song on her set list. When the show was over we walked the few blocks home to Kate's flat continuing to sing as we went, pausing only to talk about how great we felt.
In the morning we woke up to a farmers market taking place right outside Kate's window. The smells drifting into the flat, we quickly got dressed and ventured out. We were met with more rides, plenty of booths, and some really amazing donuts. I got peanut butter with berry compote and I'm fairly certain it changed my life almost as much as seeing Taylor Swift at Hyde Park did.
