Kinda like summer camp

Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival

Lynn and John’s back yard!


Kyle and I have arrived a few days ear­ly for this year’s Win­ter Park Side­walk Art Fes­ti­val. We are look­ing for­ward to the show this week­end, with great hos­pi­tal­i­ty, beau­ti­ful weath­er and the won­der­ful Park Avenue. But what always makes this trip spe­cial is that in addi­tion to vis­it­ing with love­ly patrons old and new, our days here with our friends feel a lot like sum­mer camp (albeit with more mar­gar­i­tas); there is art, music and lake time, nap time, an off site bowl­ing activ­i­ty planned, and much, much laugh­ter. As I sit on Lynn and John Whipple’s back porch and watch a boat pass on the lake I just can’t believe how lucky we are.


It also makes me real­ize that with the upcom­ing work ahead for the show this week­end, I bet­ter take advan­tage of this beau­ti­ful day and the fact that it is mar­gari­ta time! I wish you could be here!

Here is our friend Lynn Whip­ple with a wish for you!


What are you doing to make today spec­tac­u­lar?!?

    Looks like a won­der­ful place to be! This day is spe­cial because it is our 20<sup class="ordinal">th</sup> wed­ding anniver­sary. Gary had the day off and we just had a nice din­ner togeth­er. Enjoy your time in Win­ter Park! xo
