Weekend Travel {Blue Ridge, GA}

Hi lovelies! How was your weekend! I can honestly say that this was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time. The weather was perfect, I got to take a Sunday nap, and I saw some really beautiful sites for the first time that I want to share with you today. On Saturday, a friend and I went to Blue Ridge, GA. It is a small town in the north Georgia mountains and I just loved it... Here is a little round up...

First up: Apple picking at Mercier Orchards. So much fun and absolutely gorgeous...




I picked Fuji, Rome Beauty and Braeburn apples. I snacked on some along the way and they were so incredibly fresh and good! 

Stop by tomorrow to see what I did with them...


That's me in Banana Republic skinnies, a Forever 21 top, and a Prada cross body bag that may or may not be real... Appalachian mountains in the background. 


The orchard was selling candied apples in their general store. My mom loves them, so I immediately thought of her when I saw them...


After we finished apple picking, we headed downtown for lunch. We window-shopped in all of the cute little design boutiques while we waited for a table. I thought that sunburst mirror was quite gorgeous...


Lunch was at Harvest on Main. This was hands-down the tastiest tilapia sandwich I have ever had. 


Dessert was chocolate cake with a pecan and cream cheese filling, topped with a caramel sauce. Sounds good, but I didn't love it. But they had already won me over with the tilapia, so it was all good! Oh, did I mention I had a fabulous mac and cheese appetizer, too?


After lunch, we went up into the mountains to sight see. We saw some beautiful cabins that were nestled in the mountains that had incredible views. This was the view from one of the cabins. It made me feel so thankful and happy.

Was your weekend as heavenly as mines? I certainly hope so!

  2. oh wow! what a fun weekend. And you are beautiful my dear!!!! This totally makes me miss living where we actually have a true Fall. We lived in both VA and PA and I LOVED the Fall- Winter-not so much. Here in TX you get Summer then you freeze for two weeks then it gets hot again.
