a lovely respite

We're home from a weekend in Atlanta where my cousin, Molly, was married. Her sister, Suzann, graciously offered to put us up while we were there, and we arrived Friday in time to help with last minute preparations for the rehearsal dinner, which was held at Suzann's wonderful home in Decatur. I'll include a few pics from that dinner, and the wedding. We also had some time on Saturday to visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden, which has a wonderful climate controlled orchid garden ( lots of pics from there, stay tuned!). Can't wait for another trip to Atlanta to visit the garden at a more "seasonal" time of year! We also learned that Emeril just opened a restaurant in mBuckhead, so we're eager to go there for a meal, as well. Molly and her new hubby are off to New Zealand for their honeymoon. Clare, if I had known, I would have put you all in touch so that they could have a more personal experience of your wonderful country!

On our travels we also did a little more Christmas shopping, and we're making good progress on crossing items off our list. Now to unpack, organize presents for wrapping and shipping, and get ready for out next road trip in a few days for Thanksgiving.

Hope y'all had a great weekend!

sounds like a great time in Atlanta Anne. The photos are beautiful. And I would love to see your photos of the orchids. We have a gardens place back home where they grow orchids. I was just there and have a ton of photos too.

I just wish I had more time to scrap them.

I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving.
