summer’s end?

The stores may be peppered (or doused) with an endless supply of back to school items we need and don’t need, and we may be hearing a lot of, Wow, the summer went so fast! But summer isn’t over if I have anything to say about it, and since I don’t actually have anything to say about it, let’s just roll with it. There are too many fun summer-ish things left to do, that’s why! 

oh wait, we weren’t arguing. Sorry for yelling.

This weekend, my three kiddos and I will be going to the New London Music Festival. Have you been? It’s been years for me and I loved it and have heard it’s grown into an even better experience than ever before. Bring your kiddos and a blanket, some snacks and your music-lovin’ ears. Chill out in the low-ish temps at Neer Park. It looks like the weather is going to cooperate, but again, I don’t really have much say in that. What I do know is that there are a lot of talented musicians in the line-up and you can learn more about it by clicking on that words “New London Music Festival” above.

Another New London highlight this weekend is happening at the Greenwater Garage downtown. Artist/Illustrator Kate Brennan Hall will be there both Friday and Saturday! There’s a reception and artist talk and an open house and demonstration. Check out Kristin’s blog for more information. This event takes place as a part of Legacy Destination weekend (check out that link for a long list of seriously awesome events) and is free and open to the public. It’s terribly close to the music festival, so perhaps you could add this experience to your weekend by stopping in on Saturday for the open house!

Have you guys figured it out yet? I love New London! I also love how summer drags on this time of year, especially if we look at it that way…

Happy weekend!
