My life lately has primarily existed on the interstate. After a quick trip to Wild Dunes and the week in Arkansas, I was home for a day before loading back up and heading to Atlanta for the weekend.
We went straight to Turner Field for a Braves game where we had ridiculous seats right behind the Braves dugout. My 8-year-old brother (who is obsessed with MLB baseball and especially the Braves) got two balls (one tossed to him by 1st baseman Troy Glaus, the other from 1st base coach Glenn Hubbard!), caught a t-shirt AND was on the jumbo tron… he said it was the best night of his life. It was pretty legendary. To top off a great game, Sara Evans gave a concert on the field right after.
The next day we had a fun brunch and a trip to Anthropologie, my very favorite store. It’s a visual candyland- everywhere I turned I was inspired by their displays and products… my favorites this trip were a postcard bedspread(!) and an incredible display filled with the most interesting ways to hold books, from drawers on the wall to shelves made of hardbacks sitting on brackets. We have already plotted a project to do based on what we saw!
The weekend ended with my great uncle Ed’s 95th birthday party, where he and my brother did one arm pushups beside the cake. It was a perfect weekend trip!
I am home now for the long haul, and I can finally dig in (with all of the legalities in order) and get the 23Postcards Etsy shop open!
