Glen-Ella Springs Inn

Thad and I were able to travel to Georgia for a wedding this weekend. The wedding took place at the Glen-Ella Springs Inn in Clarkesville, Georgia. It was nice to get out of Tuscaloosa and roadtrip a little. I had never been to Atlanta so Thad showed me the sights and we were able to make a stop in Buckhead at Nordstroms which I miss and love. We had lunch and continued on to the wedding.
The Inn itself had so much character. The festivities were held outdoors and the area had such a serene moutain feel. The ceremony was in the garden and the dinner was on the candlelit terrace. I loved the location as a destination wedding and it had a small country-chic feel. I was so taken by the scenery and the area, it was truly a delight for us to be there.......loved it. Sadly Thad and I could not stay over night due to church obligations but it was a quick little adventure for us!

Off to the Balloon Races

Saturday was a perfect day. I had to work that morning so Thad and Michael played some tennis followed by us meeting up at Michael's pool. We enjoyed the sun and worked on ours tans or pre-mature aging, whatever you want to call it. There were several guys in the pool who talked Thad and Michael into playing some pool volleyball with them. After about 45 minutes, Thad realized that his wedding band had fallen off. Upon announcing this discovery about twelve people, some with goggles, were in the pool searching the bottom, searching the drains, searching the grassy area but to no was no where to be found.

The good news is, the day perked back up. We went in our swimsuits to Mexican food which is always a joyous occasion because Thad knows I am always in the mood for la comida mexicana. That evening we had planned to go to the Balloon Races that Neighbor Becky had invited us to. So Becky, Michael, Thad and I went out to the Tuscaloosa Airport to the Air Balloon Races. We were unsure as to what to expect but once there we were awestruck by the sights of these huge air balloons all being blown up at the same time and all taking off one right after the other. I kept snapping picture after picture, loving the colors and the designs of the balloons. And to add to the beauty it was a gorgeous day with clear blue skies. So thanks Becky for inviting us, we loved it!
