This weekend I found myself returning to my old high school town for the first time in years. The occasion? A spontaneous invite to check out the Northern VA Fine Arts Festival at Reston Town Center (my friends define me as one of those 'I like art type girls'). The area has really changed since my high school days when there was nothing but a movie theatre, ice skating rink and a few restaurants. The festival boasted hundreds of patrons all coming together to appreciate fine art and expression. The town center's streets were lined with booths where artists from all across the U.S. displayed every type of art form that you could think of. I really enjoyed being surrounded by such creativity and I'm sure it will inspire another work from myself in the coming days. It was a nice change of pace, and I'm looking forward to all of pop-up festivals that this season brings.
( SIDE NOTE: My brother went to his first prom this weekend. He's a little man now. *sad face* )
