Happy Wednesday Morning, my friends!

 

I am still enjoying having my hubby home for few more days ….. trying to fit in as much fun as possible …..

 

Few weekends ago my best friend & I decided to take our husbands on long overdue double date …. to the 18th annual  OKANAGAN FEST-OF-ALE 2013.

OKANAGAN FEST-OF-ALE started 18 years ago with few local breweries  & within few years grew to a popular & very successful

2 Day event with 26 breweries ….. 3 cideries …. top notch food …. live entertainment …..

 

I am almost embarrassed to admit that I have been living in the Okanagan for 17 years now & this was my very first OKANAGAN FEST-OF-ALE …. yep, my first ever

I didn’t know what to expect …. I am not a big BEER drinker …. , but the event over exceeded my expectations ….. by far.

 

OKANAGAN FEST-OF-ALE was one of the best nights I had in a very long time (yes, my life is not uberexciting lately, but I’m doing the best with what I have).
