Art, Wine, and TGIF ...

Omigosh! Is it really FRIDAY? Is it me, or does it seem after a big event, time seems to snap right by. All sorts of build up and anticipation and then ... bam ... not only is it over, but it's a week old! Such is my life right now. Last weekend was our BIG art festival weekend hosted by the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. After turning over all the rooms for a full house, every cottage taken, we couldn't wait to go take a walk downtown and explore all the exhibitors. With over 250 artists from around the world, there was a lot to see. It was sensory overload. Art. Inspiration. Food. Wine. Music. Everything good in the World all concentrated in nine city blocks.

One of our guests was an exhibiting artist, Teresa, creator of Minds Eye Journals. Her hand crafted leather journals are truly one-of-a-kind and perfect for artistic sketches or journaling an adventure. I'm looking forward to taking a water colors class to learn to create something worthy of her craftsmanship.

After the Mount Dora Art Festival, the week seems to have zoomed by while catching up on things and preparing for our next big crowd gatherer, The Mount Dora Music Festival, coming up next weekend.

As one of our friends in the community always says...

Peace, Prosperity, and Party Party Party,
