This weekend, Jon and I took a little trip up to North Georgia with our good friends Zach and Leah to stay a couple nights in a cabin to enjoy the mountains, rest, and spend time together. Last night on our way here, we got a little turned around on some of the "mountainy" gravel roads. I might have had a couple of those "we are surely in a horror movie" moments, but we eventually found our way to our beautiful cabin in the mountains.
When we got out of the car to start unloading our bags and armfuls of groceries, we looked up at the sky and were completely overwhelmed by its brilliance. Living in the city, the night sky is dimmed by all of the lights and hustle and bustle. There is nothing like the mountain sky. We all stood there, paused, just looking up for a moment before touring our weekend home.
The evening was spent mixing cocktails, playing board games, and laughing. This morning we made breakfast and took a little trip to downtown Ellijay, Georgia. We stopped in a couple antique stores, visited a local potter's shop and ate at an amazing little local restaurant called "Cantaberry". I went with the classic tomato basil soup and grilled cheese on sourdough. It was so, so good. After we got back, I took a little snooze and we have been spending the rest of the day reading and playing pool. So thankful we're here until Sunday!

5// Stopped on the side of the road to grab this shot. Love the sweet pup in the middle.
I'm not sure what our plans are for tomorrow, but I might try and convince everyone to take a little trip to the Wildlife Sanctuary and maybe do a little hiking in the woods?
