Country girl goes to the city!!

That's exactly what I felt like Sunday morning!! Dawn and I picked Fifi up and headed straight for downtown Atlanta looking for a nice place for us to have brunch together. Fifi suggested the Ritz Carlton and Dawn knew right where it was! It's wonderful to have a friend who's used to driving in downtown.

The food was delicious and Fifi is delightful. We really enjoyed talking and getting to know more about her and she loved Dawn's story of her growing soap business. She was feeling much better (thank you so much for your prayers!) but still not quite back to herself. Hopefully after we dropped her at her hotel she was able to take a nice long nap and rest.


I took a few photos at the Ritz, I just LOVED the chandeliers!!












We drove Fifi around Atlanta a little bit to show her a few of the sights. The two photos below are of Atlantic Station ~ an amazing shopping/living community.



The fabulous Fox theatre




What a sweetheart Fifi is!!! In my next post I should have a few photos of the magazine shoot ~ I do hope that you all are doing well and had a great weekend. I definitely had more excitement than I'm used to!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday!!


xxoo, Dawn

Dawn... Good morning.. I am sipping my coffee and reading about your weekend...Just a great experience for you... I had a busy weekend also with aittle less spendor. I was the server but I love treating others so it was fullfilling also. I was very tired last night...Sat. our ladies team came in first and I won closest to the pin drive and longest put money and suffered in the heat and humidity... Yesterday was a very pleasant day with Sisters and a very large breakfast and conversation. Next week we are guest of Sister Rose Maria in Toledo at the house as she us celebrating her 65 years of service .... They will have a dinner for special guests and a beautiful church service so will be off next Sunday... Will be looking forward to next posts... Enoy your day...

No kidding! And how on earth does that woman stay so skinny? Is it likely the fact that she runs all over the world at a whirlwind pace? She seems so sweet, and I just love her work! Thanks!
