i don't mind the dark anymore

lately {as in the past two days}
i have enjoyed the early sunset.

my new routine is coming home from work,
putting on the christmas playlist,
and plugging our tree in.

the sky is all dark around me,
and the room is dim with soft glow from the tree lights
that reflect out into the darkness
and mimic the skyline lights.

christmas time in the city.
cue the music: "silver bells"
oh how i love thee.

i finally don't have to hit next on my iphone
when a Christmas song comes on!

thanksgiving is great
{especially with cobbler}
but now on to the Christmas Season!

we snuck in a little tree into the condo
shhh don't tell
and started decorating it this weekend.

it still has a long way to go, but she sure is a beauty!

trip to tennessee

well, i guess since it's november i should blog about all of our october adventures :) i do want you to know that today i looked at our calendar and figured out that throughout the 20 weeks that we've lived in atlanta thus far, we have only had 6 weekends that didn't involve traveling or big events. it has been a very busy fall for us, needless to say!

after my field trip to jekyll island, i hopped in the car and we headed to sevierville, tennessee for a wonderful weekend with friends and georgia football.

we rode go carts
talked to holly
ate really yummy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
dawned on our red and black
walked around UT's campus
cheered on our bulldogs
and then later hiked in the mountains

oh, the mountains, how i miss you!
thank you, katie for a fabulous weekend getaway.
