Suwanee Arts in the Park

These belt buckles are so beautiful.
This past weekend our city had our annual art festival in Suwanee Towne Park. The organizers of this event are North Gwinnett Arts Association and the city of Suwanee. This is the festivals fourth year  celebrating local artist and fine crafters.

I just love her baskets.
I actually used to be a member of the arts association and helped to plan the festival.  I hope to join again real soon so I can be a part of this fun cultural event.

I saw several exhibiters from previous years, but there were several new faces who were exhibiting at the festival this year.

My daughter and our pet Tallu decided to take a moment for some silly pictures.
As you can see she was ready for the picture taking to be over with.
Our new city hall just opened up about three years ago. It is now the centerpiece of our park area.

Several years ago due to the redession many shops became vacant, but slowly we are seeing new stores coming in to fill these spaces. We have many boutiques, restaurants, and lofts that are just above the stores overlooking the beautiful park. We also have an amphitheater. During the summer we have many concerts, plays, a weekly farmers market and free movies for the family once a month.

I look forward to making many summer time memories with my family!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Happy Birthday Jordan

I can't believe that ten years ago today my little Jordan was born. I was so overwhelmed to now be a mother of three kids. It has been one crazy busy ride ever since.

This newborn photo so epitomizes Jordan's personality. He always seemed to be deep in thought even as a newborn. His kindergarten teacher told me what I already had said about him, he is a young child with an old soul.

He is my hugger, buddy, partner in crime, and master chef.

Love you Jordan!

Suwanee Farmer's Market

This past weekend kicked off the first farmer's market of the spring season at Suwanee Town Market. The is a highlight to my Saturday mornings in the summer! I have became friends with a few people over the past few years.

Some of my favorites are not here this season, but several new faces have joined the market.
Southern Essentials has wonderful natural soaps, lip balms, and lotions.

   I like the fact that they rotate some of the vendors during the season. This keeps the market fresh and new by seeing different faces.

The farmer's market also has a smaller gathering of vendors on Tuesday evenings during the summer.

I look forward to feeding my family fresh locally grown food!
