On our way to St. Simons for vacation, we decided to have a stop over in Savannah. The only times I had been to Savannah previously were with a fraternity formal and a bachelorette party. Not the most calming and relaxed environments to explore in, nor were our minds set on slow strolls through the
I feel like Atlanta has skipped Spring and jumped straight into Summer. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the 80-degree temperature but I think we skipped all the lovely 70’s way too quickly!

After an afternoon of wine tasting at Chateau Elan, we popped down the road to a new steak restaurant that opened in Braselton’s quaint downtown. Cotton Calf Kitchen, a contemporary classic steakhouse, was beckoning for us to try her out to fill the empty stomachs we acquired after tasting our way through the winery. Sweater
When the weather turns warm in Atlanta, we use every excuse to find time to go enjoy it outside. There is nothing better than enjoying the nice weather in Atlanta’s own Napa Valley: Chateau Elan. On Sunday, we packed up some day trip items, and headed up 85N to explore this wine castle located 40
This weekend I’m taking y’all back to where this little ol’ blog all began: Alpharetta!
