Life in a Small Town

Saturday night we attended Toccoa’s Ida Cox Music Festival for the second time this summer. It was a beautiful night, and the weather was perfect. The band, Better Than Better Than Ezra , played 90’s hits, and the town and locals supported the festival. About 100 or more people came and enjoyed the music, the downtown stores and restaurants, and camaraderie. There might have been some dancing going on too. Hopefully, no shots of your financial planner cutting the rug!


I like to support local businesses and Toccoa is a town trying to regain its previous good times. What is in your hometown? What festivals? What local restaurants? Support the small towns and the small businesses. Times can be tough and small towns and small businesses are struggling. We can make a difference. And maybe you will find a great new item. I found the best macarons there (sorry Paris) at Magic Oven. So good…..
