This past weekend was one of the most magical weekends for me!2

I got to experience Stars Hollow in real life! For the non- Gilmore Girls fanatics, Stars Hollow was based from an equally small town in Connecticut, Washington Depot. Very small yet a beautiful place. The festival took place over a span of three days, filled with meet and greets with the cast and crew and many sight seeing opportunities.

I had a hectic Friday, traveling from Texas into Hartford (closest int’l airport). I wasn’t able to make in time early enough to check in and begin exploring. I only  missed out on the panel from Friday night with the crew from the show.

I could easily ramble on and on about my weekend, but as the saying goes; a picture is worth a thousand words.

My experience with Liz Torres (Ms. Patty); Liz Torres was probably one of my favorites to meet! She is the real life Ms. Patty! No acting whatsoever. In this photo she didn’t want to let go because I was so warm 🙂 <38

beautiful scenery all around:

fun fact: This Luke’s coffee sleeve is the one I got from the Luke’s Coffee Day a couple of weeks ago! Back at home I’ve switched this sleeve from cup to cup, and I wasn’t the only one at the festival doing so!

So while at the festival we were told they will have another one next year!! I cannot wait! I definitely want to volunteer next time! I truly encourage to visit Connecticut in the fall. The scenery is so breathtaking, no expensive or more professional camera will take a picture that does justice to it! I am so happy and thankful I was able to make this trip, even solo, I truly enjoyed this experience! I made many friends, this is definitely a festival that you can attend by yourself!

a huge thank you to the cast and crew that took time out of their busy life and gave the fans a little life! I made sure to thank each and everyone that I met this weekend. It truly means a lot that they made it out there. And an even bigger thank you to Jennie Whitaker who created this and work her butt off to make it happen and such a success!
