Step Into My Week: Asheville and Candler Park Music Festival

This week I've kept very busy. I feel like I was constantly doing things. From the Candler Park Music Festival to visiting family in Asheville, I kept my week jam packed. I had a great week being surrounded by family.

I went to the Candler Park Music Festival on Friday. This music festival is one of the best neighborhood festivals in Atlanta. The bands they have always end up making it big in the indie music world. We went to see my favorite artist, Matisyahu. His set was absolutely incredible. I love getting to see musicians live.

While there, my family went around to all the different booths set up. An adorable Airstream trailer was turned into mobile shop. The shop goes around to festivals all over Georgia. I loved all the items they carried. I ended up getting an adorable pair of leggings with mesh zig zags.

We also went into a booth that had a photo booth. I loved taking cute photos with my sister. In the same booth, you could make art. They had a guy on a bike that generated energy to use a spray paint machine. It was so cool.

On Saturday, my family went on a Beltline tour. The Beltline is a walkable loop that is being built on the old traintracks. It is the place to be. The entire thing is supposed to be built by 2030. I hadn't been on or seen much of what hasn't been built. It was fascinating to learn all about the Beltline. I didn't realize all that went into building each part.

Sunday was spent driving to Asheville. It was crazy how rainy it was. The sound of it was absolutely beautiful. I love listening to rain. It's relaxing for me. When we got to Asheville, we got to surprise my cousins. It was amazing to see their faces light up. I love my cousins.

On Monday, we went on an adventure ropes course. I learned pretty quickly that ropes courses aren't my thing. I hung out the whole time on the first level. My sister and cousin were on the fourth level when time was up. They're superwoman. It was amazing to watch them navigate through the elements.

On Tuesday, I went with my Aunt to see fireflies. We drove to Great Smokies National Park to see a firefly show. We took a trolley to the top of a mountain. From there, we hiked to a viewing spot. Suddenly, fireflies came out of nowhere. We got to see the magic as hundreds of fireflies lit up the area. It was breathtaking to watch the magic.

We sadly had to go home on Wednesday. Luckily, I got to drive through the Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway is always amazing. I loved stopping at all the beautiful sights. On the drive home, we got to see a beautiful sunset.

That's a wrap on my week. I'm heading off to a Braves game later today.
