Allie's spring break was not only full of fun times with friends at Lake J, but many adventures back home in Georgia. Allie was so helpful in preparing some goodie bags for an upcoming event I was hosting for all our volunteers. We stuffed and stickered and stapled hundreds of these little bags!
Reading nook at Ikea.
Our afternoon treat - a trip to Dr. Bombay's Underwater Tea Party!
Dr. Bombay's decor is one of a kind- defined by antique furniture, wall-to-wall bookshelves, and many unique decorative details.
My favorite art gallery in the shop.
High tea menu
We loved this sugar dish and sugar cubes!
Allie picked out apricot honey tea and it was divine!
(No I do not have a devil horn. Mug handle problem. Ha!)
High tea spread!
We are so happy with what is happening right now. Haha
Clotted cream. So good.
Pimento cheese and egg salad sandwiches (plus quiche, not pictured).
After our tea adventure we headed to Kudzu, one of my favorite antique stores in Decatur, GA, to browse through all the treasures.
There is a special place in my heart for raw cotton. Love this stuff.
And after Kudzu I simply HAD to take her to the Dekalb International Farmer's Market. I loved shopping here when I lived in Decatur.
Also during spring break Allie and I explored the McDaniel Farm Park, a 128 acre park (previously a cotton farm) that has been restored to reflect a 1930's farm in this area. This place is like 8 minutes from our house and is so quaint and quiet even though it is surrounded by busy commuters and office parks.
Growing up before our eyes.
In addition to beautiful park adventures, we had to go back and play pirate laser tag. Our family seriously loves this place. If only they had annual passes! Ha!
And now for a few spring break details… One of my most treasured possessions is this shared journal between Allie and I. We try to write in it every time she is home with us and I love watching her grow through her entries. If you have a daughter (old enough to write and reflect on her life) I highly recommend this sweet book as a way to share your heart.
including this handmade name banner.
After Allie was back in Alabama I was tidying up her room and found this on her nightstand-
Do you see it? A half eaten, dry pancake. No plate, no napkin, just lying on the table. Haha! She cracks me up. Gotta have a pancake ready to go in a moments notice. I love this girl and every second we spend together. Our time is always precious, but this week just held some really special conversations and moments. I love spring break and just can't wait for summer! It's our first summer in Georgia and it's gonna be awesome!
