As you all have probably figured out by now (unless you’re just tuning in and if so a big hearty welcome) Kristin and I got together this weekend at her family’s vacay getaway in the mountains of north Georgia. We had a super time and I think we may have to make getting away to the mountains, husband-free for a few days an annual tradition. Not that we mind the fellas, but it really was great for the two of us to relax in our PJ’s sipping on a big ol’ bottle of vino each night, laughing into the wee hours. Don’t you just love how when you get together with your girl friends who know you best, that the same stories you’ve been reliving for years are still just as hilarious?! Recounting our dating disasters and high school shenanigans continues to be a source of never ending giggles. Somewhere between the fall leaves, honey fried chicken, and no agenda, we both took a deep breath and forgot about our stress. Even the Dude was taking in the scenery and loving life!
As Kristin posted about yesterday, on Saturday we visited a local winery and I fell in love with their grounds. Acres of rolling hills, a red barn, and this classic car made the perfect backdrop. I think I need to own an winery one day. It’s my new day dream. Check out the dude strolling along in his plaid shirt like he owned the place. It cracked us both up! Miss that little guy so much already!
The town of Clayton has a small historic downtown that’s quite charming. This bookstore had it all including a big fat cat strolling up and down the aisles.
One of our favorite spots was the newly discovered Zeppelins. I’m a sucker for an ol’ hippie haunt and this place was charming and laid back. Did I mention that the food was amazing!? But my absolute favorite was the Steve Martin record cover on the wall. So great.
Of course only when you get yourself out of the city can you see such interesting modes of transportation such as the hand painted camouflage truck and the covered wagon. Somehow I don’t think the streets of DC could rock these looks, do you?
So, it’s back to reality for me. Gym, Typing and Laundry. I’m not quite a Jersey girl, ha! However, as I write this, I am wishing all of you time to meet up with your own girlfriends to relax for a while!
