Coffee with a view and Orchids in bloom

The next day in Atlanta the three of us visited one of Lane’s favorite coffee spots. The view and scenery was beautiful as we sat along the Chattahoochee River enjoying breakfast, coffee, and one another’s company.

After breakfast we visited the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, which was currently showcasing an exhibit on Orchids. If you know me well, you’ll know that this is my most favorite flower…

I was so excited to visit here and see all the bright colors and greenery coming to life. Spring was here and we were so thrilled that cartwheels in the grass were in order…

Later on, Lane had to work, so Barb and I continued our adventure into Piedmont park to find a lunch spot and found a nice little Nook…

…and we all made a stop for a bit of ice cream from a popular spot called Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream before heading back to Lane & Josh’s home…

Jeni’s had fun flavors like Wild Lavender and Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet

It has been a whirlwind couple of days in Atlanta full of laughs, beautiful blooms, lovely friends, and delightful dishes. I am so grateful for this time to have been able to spend with these three and see Josh and Lane’s world in Atlanta for a few days. I loved it! Thank you, friends for a lovely time!

I’ve jumped onto the final plane to my next destination with a smile in anticipation of more swirling happy-heart filled weeks ahead in the DC/Baltimore area. Onward!
