Christmas tree of lights at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens (ABG) | Sneak peek at my new home office decor | Pinecone garland at the ABG | Christmas tree made entirely of live poinsettias at the ABG | My fur baby Max and his prized possession during the last few weeks
Hi there... I hope you had a good weekend. Other than a good nap on Sunday, my weekend was pretty packed, yet wonderful. This weekend I...
• Finally saw the last Twilight movie. Why yes, I'm a Twilighter. And yes, I could totally see it again.
• Went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see their Christmas lights. I don't know about you, but I turn into a little kid when I see really good Christmas lights and these are some of the best lights in the city. If you are in Atlanta or around Atlanta, I highly recommend a visit. I only took a million pics, so I'll share more with you later...
• Styled my desk in my home office. I apologize if you are tired of seeing Dyptique candles everywhere, but I just purchased the candle last week and I totally see what all the hype is about. The smell is intoxicating even when it's not lit.
• Walked out of Target empty-handed for the first time. That never happens. Ever. They didn't have what I needed and somehow I walked out without buying something that I wanted, but didn't need.
• Had dinner at Sotto Sotto, which is probably one of the BEST Italian restaurants I have ever been to. I ordered a huge plate of fresh seafood pasta. I usually have leftovers when I eat out, especially when I eat pasta. But there wasn't a single thing left on my plate this time. So very good.
• Refrained from watching too much news. I was in tears Friday night as I watched the coverage of the tragic event in Newtown, CT and I could hardly bear it the remainder of the weekend. I am just baffled. Completely baffled. I will not lean to my own understanding, but pray that God gives all involved comfort and the strength to overcome the insurmountable obstacles that lie ahead. I will hug my family a little tighter when I see them over the holidays and thank God that I'm able to do so.
