One thing I love about Atlanta is that there is always something going on. I’m literally never bored. In fact, I simultaneously don’t get to go to as many events as I’d like and long for more lazy do-nothing time. Once again, I’m here to let you know about some upcoming ATL fun! Keep reading for deets about a trunk show, an art talk, a craft market, and two art openings … loads of free, inspiring fun.
