Pensacola Weekend & Friendship

Over the long weekend, I went to Pensacola to visit one of my best friends and her sweet daughter. There’s something so precious about friendships that stand the test of time, distance and various life stages. Lucius Annaeus Seneca once said, “One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.” I can’t think of a better way to sum up friendship and the joys it brings.

Enjoy a few photos of our time together! Also, how pretty are these Florida beaches!? My home state sure is a pretty one. Surprisingly, this was my first real trip to Pensacola and I thought it was a really cute town. I liked the diversity, things to do and pretty Florida scenes everywhere we looked.

Roswell Mill Adventures

Over the last month, we’ve been able to explore some of the cities near us and it’s been a lot of fun just to be tourists in our own backyard. I love that we live somewhere with so much history and respect for the things of the past. I absolutely love Roswell and its charming downtown area. They also have some amazing restaurants, shops and outdoor activities. This weekend, we went to the Old Roswell Mill on Vickery Creek. Roswell was founded as a mill town, so the remains of the mill have been converted into a really cool trail. Also, this weekend was so beautiful and I can just feel spring coming our way soon. Hope you enjoy a few photos! :)

Barrington Hall Exploring

A few weekends ago, we took our visiting family to one of Roswell’s old plantation homes. I don’t know about you, but I’m always up for touring a slightly spooky old home. And Roswell has three of them! Last year, we went to the Smith Plantation and it was so much fun! So this time we went to Barrington Hall, which was the home of the family who founded Roswell. Hope you enjoy a few photos! :)

Asheville Wedding Weekend

Happy October, friends! It’s finally cold here and I can hardly keep myself from smiling. I literally love this time of year better than any other part of the year. Last weekend, we drove up to Asheville to see one of my best high school friends get married to the man of her dreams. The Biltmore is probably one of the prettiest wedding venues I’ve ever seen. Their ceremony overlooked the mountains at sunset and couldn’t have been more beautiful. I’ve said this before, but it’s always so sweet to get to see one of your best friends pledge to spend their life with the person they love most. I love getting to see my friends start marriages, families and adventures. There’s something just so special about witnessing your friends’ and loved ones’ big moments in life. :)

Apple Picking & Wine Tasting

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

Savannah Weekend

For Labor Day Weekend, we had the opportunity to visit one of Georgia’s little gems-Savannah! I’ve been wanting to go to Savannah for years and we finally decided it was time to make the drive for a long weekend getaway. Plus, we’re coming up on our 6 months of marriage anniversary, so we thought it would be a nice way to celebrate. Like babies, you count the first year or two of marriage in months haha. But, I suppose there’s nothing wrong with celebrating the little victories in life. :)

My first impression of Savannah was that it’s just the cutest, most quaint, hipster, artsy, trendy, historic town. I love the southern artsy flair you can feel in the streets and the accents of almost every waiter. I adore the immense amount of exposed brick, the cobbled streets and the architecture that boasts stories of a city that’s had many lives. Oh, and then there are all sorts of yummy restaurants and not enough hours in the day to try them all. Despite the rain, we had a really sweet time in this darling little city. Here are a few photos of what we did! Continue reading
