LOVING WHERE YOU'RE AT MONDAY

If you are in Sacramento then you've got to check out the "Goods" found at GOOD:street food + design market. It's just another reason to love Sacramento. The event brings together some of Northern California's best artist, DJs, food, wine, clothing and design together in an amazingly transformed venue every first Sunday, June thru November. Not only that, but everyone we came across at the event was extremely friendly and welcoming, here's just a taste...

Oh, and did I mention a most favorite sister and her little black truck were also in attendance?
And what post of mine would be complete without pictures of my little lovelies? Now you know that this event is open to everyone, but to assure some of my mommy friends, our crew of little avengers loved it! They danced on what may have been art, enjoyed giant shaved ice, made pinatas, got their face painted and boogied to the DJ who was playing their kind of music!
 
Another reason to love where you're at!

Today's Reflection:
Sacramento has got some great stuff, right inside our borders. Every now and then I'll hear someone comparing Sacramento negatively to much larger cities, as if to point out that we should be more like them. I am grateful for the people who see the best of Sacramento and pull it out and let it shine. 
I feel a lesson coming on.
Sometimes we can look down on ourselves, compare ourselves to others or just plain not see the good inside us. There is something good inside each and everyone of us. There is something good, because we were created by such an amazing God. He did not create us all the same for a reason, we all have something different to share something unique and useful and for a purpose. So shine! Shine on and be proud of what lies inside you, because you were wonderfully made!

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well."
-Psalm 139:14

  1. Those are impressive. The best ones are the ones where the shape of the hand or the skin texture works for the animal (like the elephant and giraffe). The painting of a cat on the hand seems a bit pointless.
