If you’ve never been to a mango auction… that’s what it looks like^ It’s a trip to see bidding wars over a few mangoes in a basket. 90$ for a handful of mangoes? Maybe next time.
If you’re local to the area, I highly recommend checking out the Wings of The Tropics exhibit at The Fairchild Tropical Gardens. We went this weekend for the annual Mango Festival and it was magical. I completely regret not buying Alex and I another round of yearly memberships (pre paying for the already pricey 25$ entrance fee). If I had known the new exhibit was this awesome? I would probably make my visit at least a monthly thing. We had them before, when we were dating in Miami, but I haven’t renewed them since. It’s been about three years give or take since we’ve been there, the last time being when Marlowe was just a little baby in utero, but it doesn’t feel that long at all. It feels like it was just yesterday. The time just keeps flying by.
Marlowe’s dress turned shirt: here.
