Just like last year, the Portuguese design firm Studio Ivotavares canopies their streets with fancy candy colored umbrellas.  The installation will last the entire month of July to celebrate the Agitagueda art festival.  Such a phenomena is captured by Patricia Almeida; with each juicy frame the smiling blue sky behind presents another immaculate image.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
