The media is killing us with all the drama of the "financial crisis" and frankly I'm tired of hearing about it 24/7.
I know like everyone else what kind of impact this situation has on our lives. Not only does it cause havoc with our 401K and other investments but it also hurts our independent businesses as well. It's hard to stay positive with all this going on around us. Therefore, this past Saturday I headed to The Taste of Suwanee a yearly event that is simply outstanding and got an attitude adjustment. Located at the 10 acre Town City Park in Suwanee Georgia, Town City is not just a park, it offers shops, restaurants and residential living all at the same place.
A gorgeous fall day in the 70's, a perfect time to walk around and take in all the sites! My daughter sings with the North Gwinnett choir so I got to hear her sing in the amphitheater which has 1500 seats. Along with many others, was a drum group called the Drumline also from North Gwinnett that rocked the house! Activities for the festival hit all ages. Some of those activities included a rock wall, inflatables, pony rides and many booths for your shopping pleasure. We ate some awesome food and did a little mother/teenager bonding. Since it was close to my house I didn't spend a lot of gas getting there!
So if you're like me and need a break from all the hoop-la; pack the kids, backpack and some comfortable shoes and get to a fall festival, you won't regret it. In fact, if you know of any festivals close to you, email me with the location or respond here. I will get the word out; we could all use a little attitude adjustment right now.
