I Will Be Statue Still

Oh, Harrisburg, capital of Pennsylvania, bankrupt city you....your grounds happen to be quite beautiful and the building too, yet I have never taken pictures around you. That changes today.

I hope to take more pictures around the capital building and its grounds as time goes on. This first group is just taken by the corner of the property, in front of a large statue of an old Harrisburg senator. I know very little of Pennsylvania history since I didn't grow up here. Okay, let's face it, I didn't even know this was the capital up until I got an interview here. But now I do, so I will share it with you. Also, really excited because I fixed this dress by just ripping out the boning that was popping through the top.

  26. I love this dress katherine! So glad you took out the uncomfortable boning, it's the worst in dresses sometimes if it isn't necessary! So sorry to hear you drove 1.5 hrs to get to the mall and didn't drop by H&m!
