I already have favorite spots in Atlanta. One of them is the park....very important for a mother of four. Chastain park to be exact. It is big, but quaint, and full of charm.
It is a park like none other I have seen. It is actually more than just a park. It has tennis courts attached, a golf course, a three mile running trail, an art museum, an equestrian club, baseball fields, huge Olympic size outdoor swimming pools, an amphitheatre....the list goes on and on.
I have a favorite building which happens to be the Chastain Arts Museum. It is an old, Georgian building, with robbin egg blue brick, large white columns, and a huge wrap around porch. It is shabby chic, colonial, and and full of character.
I took Catherine and the baby there yesterday morning for pictures.
As I was leaving the park, I happened upon an estate sale sign. So I decided to venture.
This was the house, and it was an estate sale of huge grandeur:). EVERYTHING in the house was for sale, and when I say everything.....I mean it. I was quite shocked. Apparently the owners were moving to Florida and just wanted everything sold??
It was a fun experience, I will not forget. I walked away with a beautiful little oil painting from a local Atlanta artist. It will hang on my wall, and always remind me of my stay.:)
The days here have been flying by. I am trying to take advantage of every day that I can, because we don't know how much longer we are going to be able to stay.
