Dahlonega, Georgia {September 2018}

Over Labor Day weekend, I headed up to the Georgia mountains for Kelly’s bachelorette party! I hopped on a flight on Friday which got me to Atlanta, then we drove up to the mountains late Friday afternoon. As soon as I got out of my sweet rental car, I snapped a picture. The view was amazing! The house was enormous and just perfect for the occasion.

On Saturday morning, a few of us went out for a walk…down the mountain and then back up. I just could not get over the gorgeous views!

In the afternoon, we set off on our winery tour. I had so much fun with these ladies! We’re already looking forward to our reunion at the wedding next month.

Our first stop was Yonah Mountain Vineyards, which ended up being my second favorite stop of the day. The views were great and the inside was gorgeous. The wine was also delicious!

Our second stop was Kaya Vineyard and Winery. Based on the wine, this was my least favorite, but it had the best shopping. The gift shop was full of adorable rustic goodness.

Untitled

Our last stop was Montaluce Winery and Estates which was my favorite. The entire property was stunning. The wine was delicious and our dinner was fabulous. I had fancy chicken and waffles because I was in the south and I had to.

We had such a great day celebrating our sweet friend Kelly!

I spent Sunday by the pool with the girls and my Kindle before it was time to head back down to reality to catch my evening flight.

Untitled

It was such a lovely weekend away. Did I mention how beautiful it was there? This is an area that I would love to go back to so I can try the other wineries in the area.

we had a crazy, busy weekend! how was yours?

first day of school {august 2018}

The kids started school one week ago! I have to say there was much less anticipation leading up to the first day, unlike last year. It was really interesting to go back and read last year’s post, especially since Crosby was starting at a different school last year before we made the decision only a couple weeks later to quickly change to his current school. It seems so much longer ago! Nonetheless, he’s is starting VPK (voluntary pre-kindergarten) this year, which means only one more year until they are going to the same school again!

Kenley started first grade with one less tooth this year! Greg pulled her top tooth the night before school started. Even a week later, her smile still catches me off guard! She was so looking forward to getting back to school, meeting her teacher, and the new friends in her class. She was also happy to find out that some of her old friends are in her extended day class so it’s the best of both worlds!

Untitled

Untitled

We headed to Crosby’s school first which was super busy and full of families dropping off their kids. He did such a great job. We made our way to Kenley’s school next since we were allowed to walk her in on the first day. I was happy to see that our sidewalk chalk wasn’t washed away by the rain the night before.

Both of the kids had great first days of school. We are looking forward to a great year!
