Yesterday turned out to be a really nice day. Granted, we had the toilet situation, which I am happy to report was corrected by 4pm. THANK GOD. Being able to flush toilets is a luxury many of us do not even realize we have.
I finally got dressed, grabbed my things, and headed into Macon with my mom. I dropped her off at the gallery for the Winter Arts Festival sponsored by the Middle Georgia Art Association. The pieces they had displayed were phenomenal. Mom says they gave out over a thousand dollars in prizes. Congrats to the winners! Want to learn more about MGAA? Click HERE . (Just a side note - many of you are artists, if you are interested in selling your goods, there is a HUGE Arts festival in town each spring sponsored by MGAA. Trust me, if you live in Georgia, you know about this festival. If you are interested in flying/driving down and participating (and I guarantee you will sell your goods,) just click HERE. My mom is the president of the organization that does this event, if you want to talk to someone, I can connect you!)
After perusing the art, I met up with my friends at Leslie & Philip's house. You have to understand, they were being super secretive about what was going on. Finally, we all head out to the car, and Phillip says, "If you need to go to the bathroom, do so now." I sort of looked at them perplexed, and said, "Okay.. where are you taking me?" Of course, no one would say anything.
While we were driving off, I was not paying attention to where we were going, since I was steadily trolling Twitter.. so I was unable to see if we were going north or south on 75, that is, until we hit a town outside of Macon called, Forsyth. I knew immediately, okay.. "I think we are heading to Atlanta - but where?"
Sure enough, Atlanta it was.. and we had a spectacular night. :-)
