I was inside a very cool store in downtown Raleigh (Deco) when I glanced up and saw the feathers.
So naturally I had to run outside and see what was going on. My daughter rolled her eyes when I explained I had to investigate. I can be too extroverted for her taste.

It’s not like you can ignore them. Well, I suppose you can, but not this girl. I had to know why they were dressed up so colorfully.

It’s been going on for five years. I had no idea.
Raleigh is really becoming a fun place to hang out on the weekends. I’m really enjoying discovering all the cool shops and places to eat.
They look beautiful, don’t you think?
