When Best Friends Visit

Last month my best friend, Lolly, of almost two decades came to Atlanta for a weekend visit. I was so happy to have her here and to be able to show her a part of my new life. For years and years we always lived close to each other and it was definitely weird not being around her all the time when I moved to Georgia. La and I travel the same way; we do and see as much as we possibly can and have a blast doing it. So I took her on a wild tour of the greater Atlanta area -- from the city to the mountains and back! We packed in a LOT of stuff in just a few days! Are you ready to go on this adventure with us? Keep reading... Friday night we went to some local bars, drank beer, played pool and caught up with each other. Saturday morning we made breakfast and ventured to the west side of midtown to drive by my office and do some shopping at the brand new Free People store and the White Provisions area. We passed what was left of the Color Run on our way out of my neighborhood.

Retreat Day @ Montaluce Winery

Located less than two hours north of Atlanta is a magical place called the Georgia Wine Trail -- a well-kept secret that I just discovered. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the edge of Chattahoochee National Forest is the stunning property of  Montaluce Winery & Estates . Living Social Adventures popped up with an incredible offer for a Retreat Day at the Vineyard that I could not refuse. With that kind of headline (including keywords "retreat" and "vineyard") it immediately caught my attention. How can a girl say no to a day of relaxing and wine tasting? My best friend, Lolly, was planning on coming up for a visit and this adventure was perfect timing! Like icing on the cake we ended her weekend road trip with a day in Georgia wine country. Our day included... 40 minute wilderness hike 30 minute yoga session gourmet lunch wine glass painting session mini spa treatments wine tasting with cheese pairing We woke up early and
