Ok, ok.. I am really trying to slow done and NOT be “Johnny on the spot”, but who can resist living in such a festive neighborhood? We really are a family oriented community- and what i mean by this, everyone you meet is like family.
A 2min run to Krogers can take me 45mins after i run into and chat with 5people…no matter how hard i try to pull away! Its funny, you almost need to go outside the SW ATL to get a little “me” time but every time I venture into another side, I miss home. Almost like these active kids…can’t wait to get a break but as soon as they’re asleep, I’m creeping in rooms to ensure you’re still there and exactly how you should be.
This weekend was beyond busy with work(showing homes,adding signs, lockboxes,making flyers), the “Committed To Communities” event and squeezing in some studying ( forget house work) …the 2day Malcolm X festival was a perfect addition to show some support to a community event and relax.
(Atlanta certainly should take the prize as a city with MUCH to do during the spring/summer; it’s been nonstop rain or shine!)
…And, although it felt like I’ve been everywhere, I did miss a few awesome West End and Westview parties, volunteer opportunities… But there is always next week 🙂
Here are a few pics from today that caught my eye:
my hair stylist doing her thing, as usual (the Good Hair Shop.com), I don’t do tats but had to admire skills and ability to hold a steady hand, Leah breaking me financially-eating $3 icy& getting her hair done, a homeowner I helped and haven’t seen in months, Gabriel-our local artist/handyman, singers/dancers and Poets. I’m kicking myself because I can’t remember the name of this amazing artist. I think it was “Maryann M.” or “Mariam Maruba” ….
It was refreshing seeing everyone smiling,laughing, hugging and recognizing being “Blessed”.
I hope you enjoyed this weekend as much as I did….see you at the next event!
We had another successful event this year in West End/ West Fest…our Dog Parade brought out the most pampered pooches in town. We we lead by drummer and our troup leader (Asher McBee)to the Art Festival on Gordon White Park on RDA. The weather was perfect and we even had an extra treat of Bikers along the Beltline.
Be sure to add this event to your calendar for next year! We have our parade the first weekend in May.
