This last weekend I’ve been coughing out my brains and have become proficient in miming for lack of voice, so naturally I tried to lock myself into my room and hibernate for a few days. But. The weather. Was just. SO. GOOD. I managed to take enough medicine so I only felt like half a zombie going out to infect the world as I walked through the chalk festival, but the art is so good every year that I didn’t want to miss it! Insert disclaimer: I don’t recommend going out when you’re coughing like crazy unless you love when people give you looks of disgust. I can’t blame them. I was a mess. But the weather, and the art, and the sunshine. I just needed it. How great are these chalk drawings? The photos could never do them justice (#nofilter), seriously the talent is amazing. Some of the entries were kids only 13 and 14 years old! The talent some people have…. I love that these people chose to share their talent.
