in the ATL


I have returned! From Atlanta, Georgia.
Roller derby photos will be shared soon enough, but first, I want to share my brunch with Mary. :)
 Mary and I "met" through the wide world of Livejournal back in the early millennium. While I am no longer active on Livejournal, it holds a special place in my heart. Oh, my early blogging days. I met quite a few folks on that website, with whom I am still friends. :)

  I didn't get to see much of Atlanta with all the derby watching, so Mary took me on what she calls a "2cent tour" - and I loved it!
We started in Candler Park - a cute little area with a few shops and a yummy yum cafe: The Flying Biscuit. And her friend Michael took all the scenic routes - I admired all of the "Living Walls," and different kinds of trees and leaves...I wish Houston had such beautiful colors! I wish we had a "fall."










 We also walked around Little Five Points, another really hip area, with bright little shops. :)
I had looked up things to do in Atlanta by my hotel and ended up Five Points - much different than Little Five Points...I will share those photos later. :)


  The first three photos are from Junkman's Daughter. A really eclectic shop that had loads of gifts and clothing. The dressing room was pretty cool looking. These photos are shot from my phone, though. We weren't sure how welcoming they'd be of my camera... :)

          Are you my mummy??

Thanks so much to Mary for entertaining my for a few hours. I greatly appreciated it! The roller derby was amazing, but you can't go to a city for a weekend and not sight-see at least a little. :)

xoxo

  2. Such a cute area! I would love to have brunch and to take a stroll there! As for LJ, I have a soft spot for it too - I feel like it is the early form of blogging for some, and I too have some great friends from LJ still to this day.

  3. !!!! It was so much fun :D Glad you liked our little tour. I really like your pictures--I really like the one of Mikey in the store.

    P.S. Why oh why am I pigeon-toed in that photo?! haha I wish I could say I did that to be blogger ironic :X

  4. Ahh! Love ATL! My boyfriends best friend lives about 45 mins west and we were able to go down in March and visit. We didn't have a whole lot of time so most of it was spent at the Aquarium, High Art Museum, and Little 5 Points. Hopefully next time we'll have time to explore a little more, as long as the traffic doesn't kill me first. <3
