The month of October has been a much needed change of pace from the rest of the year. It was filled with evenings with friends, visits from family, a cooking class, farmer’s market mornings and antique shop finds. We’ve been able to work on our house a lot lately and find a bit more time for “staycations.” Also, I finally got to bring out my fall sweaters and it felt so good. Here are a few photos of life lately.
It’s become a tradition to have our friends Ashley and Nathan stay with us for New Year’s and a weekend in the summer. For this “Friendscation,” we ate our favorite pizza, worked on adult things (like home loan paperwork, grad school papers & PA school applications), explored Ponce City market, walked the greenway and watched movies. Also, I had a baby shower to go to for another sweet friend. Side note, we have SO many baby friends being born this year. I’m quite happy to say I’m excited we are leaving the “wedding season” stage of life and heading into the “baby shower” stage.
Last weekend, we went to a little mountain trail in North Georgia called Sawnee Mountain Preserve, but it’s also known as Indian Seats. Two of our best friends, Ashley & Nathan, were in town for New Year’s, so we decided it was a perfect time to explore this beautiful part of Georgia on an equally beautiful day. We finally had some cooolllddd weather so I was really excited to be outside! As always, I just had to take a few pictures and I even made a little video of our adventures. I’m glad I did, because I think this will be a day we look back on and cherish for years to come. Sometimes it’s the little adventures with lots of laughter and really awesome people that mean the most. Hope you enjoy!
This past weekend, the hubs and I had two of our very best friends staying with us. We always love when the Fontenots come for a visit, because times with the Fontenots are always good times. They were with us when we got engaged last year (can’t wait to share that story!!) and they were both in our wedding. Although we’d been wine tasting together, we had never been apple picking together. So we knew this weekend was going to be epic.
On Saturday, we drove from Atlanta to Ellijay. It’s a tiny little mountain place in North Georgia and it is just the epitome of fall. There are apple orchards, wineries, back roads and the prettiest fall leaves you’ve ever seen. Enjoy a few pictures from our time at B.J. Reece Orchards and Cartecay Vineyards.
P.s. Stay tuned for a little video of our adventures next week! Continue reading
