Tacoma, for days

Here's where I make my big announcements about where I'll be all weekend. Tacoma!

Thursday is the Tacoma Farmer's Market -- 10am to 3pm. Cherries and berries are in peak season right now. Who can pass up those summer fruits? I'll be there with bells on.

Tacoma's Art a la Carte is the art festival set up alongside the Taste of Tacoma food bonanza in Pt Defiance Park for the next three days. Everyone likes to eat! Especially when it's paired with a gorgeous park setting, a huge assortment of food booths to choose from, a sweet little art festival, live music and entertainment, kid's stuff, ooh la la the free samples - the works! Hours are Fri and Sat 11am to 9pm, and Sun 11am to 8pm.

The weather was so perfect yesterday - a bit cooler than that heat blast we had over the past weekend, and more comfortable for everyone. And it's supposed to hang on all the way through the 4th, what luck! Gorgeous, sunny blue skies and temperatures in the upper 70's? Is this heaven?
