Sometimes there’s nothing better than taking a breather from life and having a nice…slow…weekend. No plans, no parties, no commitments….just summertime, livin’s easy. Sounds great, right? So why not?
I live for these weekends. I love to just sort of let go of everything and go where the wind blows. It looks like the wind is going to blow me to Chesterton this weekend. No, I’m not making “plan” plans, it’s just there are a few things happening that are so up my alley.
Chesterton European Market – Into great local food, produce, handcrafted goods and live music? The fresh market is a must. It’s a favorite. It’s a have to. I love walking around – even if just for a stolen 30 minutes to take in the people, the smell and the sounds. It’s a lovely start to your weekend, and you’ll likely return home with some wonderful, fresh jam ( a beautifully local zucchini.
After you make it to the market, you might want to stick around town for the Chesterton Art Fair. Art festivals are one of my favorite things to do. Ever. With activities. local artists and community togetherness – it’s always a great time. The festival runs Saturday, August 6 and Sunday, August 7, 10 am – 5 pm
So, take it easy on yourself this weekend – go relax with a nice stroll through the farmer’s market, then peruse the wares of artist’s at the art fair. Before we know it school will be back in session, life will pick up from its slow summer speed and we’ll all be waiting on winter. Let’s all get out to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air!
