Last week we had took a trip to Atlanta for a very special reason. Unfortunately, I can't divulge that reason just yet, but I did want to show some photos of our search for Christmas. The city didn't seem to be much in the spirit, but we did find some pockets of festive sights.
These are at the Coca-Cola museum, which has a lot of Christmas themed exhibits. I think this Santa would fit right in my carved Santa collection.
We had the most fun on this street in the Atlanta neighborhood of Buckhead. I didn't catch the name of this street, but it must be pretty famous what with all the incredible mansions lining the street. We were amused by the over-the-top decorated mailboxes. I don't know that I've ever seen a Christmas decorated mailbox in our neck of the woods. Each one was better than the last!
This mansion has to be the pinnacle though. It looks so stately.
On our last evening we splurged on a night out at the fabulous Fox theatre for an Atlanta Ballet production of The Nutcracker. This theatre is just gorgeous- definitely worth taking time to see. The production was just what we needed to feel in the Christmas spirit.
These last two photos are here at home today. Ryan and his friends decorated and devoured our Solstice cake. Another trip around the sun. Hope you all had a lovely day too!
