Wednesday -Atlanta Bloggers and friends . .

Okay this is Thanksgiving week - so I will be late reading your posts - but I will - just bare with me!

A couple of weeks ago a dear friend of mine had an Atlanta Blogger Luncheon plus some of her friends. I had a great time. I saw some old blogger friends and met some new ones. I had the best luncheon I think I've ever gone too.

I thought I'd show you a couple pictures and then I posted two gals websites where they blogged about it.

Anyway you know my opinion about bloggers -
T H E Y
A R E
A W E S O M E !


Flowers to greet us.


Here is host Sue - cooking away in her beautiful kitchen. I believe she made almost everything and did I tell you she is a great cook?



This is her back yard and it was all I could do not to jump in this heated salt water pool, waterfall, and jacuzzi.



Complete with a fireplace.

Did I mention waterfall too?



I can't even describe all the wonderful food.



And Sue made these eggs herself - from chocolate - one for all of us.


She was nice enough to let hubby put this up on the wall!


Here were some of the gals.

Thought for the day:

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life — learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some."
– Robert Fulghum

And yes I am in the picture - look to the right - I am behind someone! That's me!

Thanks so much for sharing ... Happy Thanksgiving to you and family!

PS..does salt water in a swimming pool burn your eyes? I've always wondered.

That is one beautiful house.
Did you mention "draw"? I am always drawing for my grandkids. They don't judge and if I make a mistake we make up things like, he is winking, if the eyes are not the same.
