And we're off!


I'll be taking a short blogging break as we head off to Rockport. We will be spending 4 wonderful days in this beautiful little bayside town. This year we are attending the Rockport Film Festival, relaxing in our favorite rental condo and taking lots of pictures for Outdoor Wednesday and Weekend Reflections! And I'll be shopping for fun things for my 100th post and pay it forward give a ways! If you would like more information about the film festival, click here. There are several films that we are excited about seeing, but CHOPS is the one that we are most enthusiastic about at the moment. CHOPS is the story of a Jacksonville high school jazz ensemble working toward attending the Essentially Ellington Festival in New York City. If you've read this blog for long, you know how passionate I am about arts education in our schools. What you may not know is that our daughter Cait was involved in our local high school's first jazz band and played lead saxophone. So this movie should be right up our alley. To learn more about this inspiring documentary film, click here.



Even though we have a busy weekend planned, I still intend on making sure I'm able to do this

And this....



And lots of this.....



Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I'll be back next week, hopefully with lots of great pictures and some goodies for my give a way!

Kat, have a blast! I love the music playing on your blog because I'm a HUGE jazz lover. I grew up listening to Dixieland (my parents were Pete Fountain fans) and of course Satchmo. Is that Jacksonville and in Jacksonville, FLORIDA? If so, I would love to see it.

Hope you are having lots and lots of fun and finding lots and lots of shiny objects!

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Sheila :-)
