Small town charm ~

Saturday we decided to drive to Carrollton, Georgia to visit the University of West Georgia campus! Chase has been accepted there and will be attending in the fall. His orientation is in a couple of weeks so we wanted to make a dry run for him to see where it is. Carrollton is quaint little country town and Chase really liked it!! I took a few photos of the beautiful old homes to share with you ~




I love the architecture of this wonderful old building!



West Georgia has a very pretty canvas, not too big either ~



I fell in love with the little town square ~ it was quite elegant!




The little grill that we ending up have dinner at ~



Cute, huh?



Our two youngest boys, Noah and Chase (the future college student!) ~




I can hardly even believe Chase is old enough to go to college!!! It was really a nice day we spent together seeing his new campus ~ I hope you've had a wonderful weekend dear friends.....

hugs and love, Dawn

I love tours of lovely towns. It is so hard to get used to our kids being college students. Yikes, time flies! My youngest will be starting this fall. Such opportunities ahead.

That third house and the little town is to die for! I swear I was supposed to be a southern gal at some level. My son is starting college in the fall as well (or so we think - LOL) but he'll be going to a local school and commuting. They grow up soooo fast.
Thanks for sharing your day with us!

Hope Chase loves it there. Looks like the two boys were loving the grill. I bet you had a fun family time! They do grow up so fast don't they? Where does the time fly????? Is Clara back home tonight? I bet her other grandparents enjoyed her.

What a wonderful little town, and such a great place for mom to have the excuse to visit her son and shop at the same time. Good luck to your son with college. LOve Tiina....

Hi Dawn, I used to live in Carrolton; I still miss it at times. My daughter is going to nursing school there! We were there Sunday. I know I would recognize you if I ran into you on the street! lol It's a great school and I hope Chase has a great learning experience there. So glad you were in my neck of the woods. Blessings, Gerri

I love the history that evolves around college towns. Carrolton looks like a lovely place. Southern homes are the best. Thank you as always for sharing. Those boys sure are handsome!

Whoa! Chase is quite handsome!!! And I can see that the younger one is following his lead too. They just look like precious children, and I'm sure they are if they inherited any of your sweetness.

I plan to visit Plum Tree one of these weekends, I love hearing about your visits and finds.

Loved the photos, Dawn! What a charming town, and how exciting for your son to start college there! Someday my husband and I want to visit Savannah, GA and I remember you've posted some beautiful photos of your trips there, too. I have relatives buried in the cemetery there, and my mother's mother and her family were all from there.

Hi, Dawn,
How fun to go to your blog and see my town! We've been here for a few years now, and it really is a wonderful place. I know your son will enjoy it all. Two of my 4 are in college now, and it is so hard to believe. Many blessings!

Hey girl, I graduated from there in '77 when it was still part of the university system! West Georgia College, had some neat moments there :) AND got my teaching degree. Carrollton is, and has always been, a really neat place to live. Congrats! He'll love it!

Nancy said...

Oh, it's still part of the university system; we were just more a part of Athens back then ~ on my last trip over there, I couldn't believe the changes on campus!! We were so small in the years '74-'77 :)
