Had a great time celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Blue Plum festival last night. Great food and music, lots of fun stuff for the kids, cool stuff from local artisans, and friendly people.

The festival has changed quite a bit over the years since I first moved here more than 20 years ago, but it seems to have regained a lot of its old momentum since Covid.

I’m consistently reminded of how grateful I am to love the place we live.
