ART CRAWL, AFTER CRAWL, EASTER

Thursday, April 12, 2012

When I was a kid, my Mom used to tell me that April came in like a lion but left like a lamb. Sure, she was talking about the weather - but I'm talking about life! Things can get crazy sometimes so it's important to take time to be thankful for the good things, the happy things, the things that make your heart smile. I've had some great opportunities lately and thought I'd make sure that you all know how much I appreciate you! 

Anecdotes and thank you notes aside, here is a mini update on whats been going on with my life. Enjoy this bombardment of instagram photos! Hurray.







ART CRAWL
I'd just like a moment to rave about Nashville's Art Crawl, downtown at the Arcade. I love it, I love it, I love it.
Okay, I'm done. But really. 

Held the first Saturday of each month, the Arcade opens up its doors between 6-9PM and art lovers far and wide come to browse each gallery's latest talent, get a little buzz off some free booze (usually beer or wine - but I had something at the Rymer Gallery that involved Melon, which was divine)or just people watch. That's fun too. 





AFTER CRAWL AT THE BRICK FACTORY
Now the only thing better than the Art Crawl, is The After Crawl - hosted by Brick Factory. Find out more HERE

This go around there was a great photo booth set up by Generation Domination complete with bicycle theme, a raffle for some pretty sweet bike gear, and need I not forget the "free" (suggested $5 donation) beer / wine. I also saw puppies. Everyone likes puppies.







EASTER//ETC
Easter, regardless of which way you choose to celebrate it - is a celebration of rebirth. Spring is such a perfect time to celebrate change and moving forward.  Every direction we turn, things are blooming and sprouting and becoming new again. It's important to appreciate spring not only as a change in season, but a representation of change that comes from within. I encourage everyone to take time this spring for yourself, your dreams and your creativity - and know that anything is possible!
