Spending the weekend on the Cape for a friend's wedding and the LoveLocal Fest really made me realize how much I miss it. I brought my kittens Gracie and Bella home with me, and while my cat growing up Jingle Bells was not a fan, it was definitely an adventure bringing them home with me. Spending time with them and my family was interesting-surprisingly my brother was the most interested in them (especially when it came to introducing them to Jingles and a laser pointer).
The first LoveLocal Fest of the season this year was fun. It was really windy-but the rain held off! LoveLocal Fest was also supporting the vendors by running a #ishoplocal contest, rewarding customers for shopping local and entering them in to win $50. Of course I had to participate too-my choice was The Local Juice. I was able to get some of my favorite juice from The Local Juice, and I tried a new one! Harvest is my favorite and then I tried there new special (soon to be on their regular menu) which was made with Carrot, Fennel, Apple, Cucumber and Lemon. Seriously they are so good. I already have a countdown to the next LoveLocal Fest to get more. Hopefully I can get it sooner if they can get the permit to sell it at the Little Beach Gallery again. Or if you wanna try what they have to offer before the next LoveLocal Fest, you can get a taste at the Barnstable Market with their pop up smoothie/juice bar, or at Cape Cod farmer's markets. Check out their Instagram for where they are gonna be.
Thank you to everyone who came by and supported local artisans and vendors and I hope to see you at the next LoveLocal Fest on August 30th from 11-7 at Aselton Park in Hyannis. Check out

I am very happy to announce that I will be a vendor at the LoveLocal Fests for the entire summer this year! The LoveLocal Fests are the last Sunday of July, August and September at Aselton Park in Hyannis MA. I am looking forward to doing all three, instead of just the one that I did last year. It was such a motivating show, because of how much Love Live Local supports local artisans. While I may not live on the Cape anymore, part of me will always still belong to the Cape.
