Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

Hello Tuesday.


I love vacations where you literally do nothing but hang out at the pool.

That is what we accomplished last week and it was a great, wonderful thing.

I am actually just home for a bit today before heading to Artfest.

Planning to post more later this week.

    I can’t think of anything better to do on a vacation too than to hang out at the pool.
    I also look forward to your feedback on Artfest. I’ve heard so much about that event and all the great artistic challenges it brings. Enjoy it!!!

    Flashback. When the kids were small, I would always take them down to CA for spring break. Warm weather & a swimming pool, right on! It’s needed after our winter…. now I’m really jealous with Artfest and Inspired coming up…. and I’m stuck in N. Carolina working! Fly clear across the country, will be 100 miles from Donna’s front porch; and I can’t make either event! Have a wonderful time and make sure to tell us all about both (and take pictures)- Terri

    The kind of vacation you just took is the kind everybody needs once in a while to “recharge”. Glad you had such a good time.
