Brenham was alive this weekend; more alive than I’ve seen in months. Our little town was teeming with visitors who came to see the painting of two new murals for the Texas Arts and Music Festival, shop at the Art Market and our quaint downtown shops, and hear some live music for Hot Nights, Cool Tunes. I felt a little overwhelmed by the number of people here this weekend, but it was a nice kind of overwhelmed that makes your heart happy.
I got to spend Saturday morning with my mom, perusing the Art Market. We enjoyed shopping at the stores here and talked to the shop owners and had a nice time. Mom was wowed by the murals. She moved away in 2016 and hadn’t taken much time to revisit her old town until I dragged her to work with me.
