Last year, as a fairly new blogger, I was excited to be asked to attend events. I still am although I cannot attend nearly as many events this year due to lack of time....
Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival 3.25-3.26
There is no question about it, I am a big festival person. I love going to festivals and I especially love taking my family. Festivals are a great way to see what the city has to offer while getting some exercise and spending time outside. If you’re anything like me, finding family-friendly activities that don’t break the bank is tough on the weekend. Next weekend we are heading to a local festival here in Atlanta and I absolutely cannot wait. The Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival will be held March 25-26, 2017.
