Georgia on my Mind

Just back from my Virtual Vacation to Georgia, courtesy of Anne, who sent me a marvelous box of yarny goodness, treats and souvenirs.

The highlights of my vacation:

- A beautiful hank of Alpaca with a Twist's "Fino," in the very color I would have chosen for myself from the famous Knitch in Atlanta;

- Also from Knitch, their signature coffee from a local roastery, which is wonderfully smooth tasting. It was perfect for our Labor Day Blunch (this is the meal that takes place when we wake up at noon on weekends).

- The coolest souvenir keychain ever;

- Box of Toblerones, which was opened pretty much immediately for medicinal purposes when the packaged arrived on Friday morning;

- Peach salsa, which beat my previous favorite (Mollie Stone's Chipotle Salsa) in a comparative tasting this weekend;

- An array of postcards, the one of the Georgia Aquarium was a big hit. DH and I will have to make a point of going in real life -- he said it is the best aquarium in the country;

- A cookbook chock-full of southern deliciousness. Just the inspiration I needed to finally make fried chicken. I keep saying I am going to do it. And hushpuppies. I adore hushpuppies;

- A fabulous large (as all mugs should be) mug of Atlanta;

- Sweet Pea-scented body lotion. Sweet Peas are among my favorite flowers (I had them in my bridal bouquet), and this lotion smells absolutely lovely;

- A gorgeous-smelling sachet, which shall grace my office.
Thank you, Anne! I loved my package!

Looks like Anne sent you on a wonderful vacation to Atlanta!! Mmm Peach!!

Anne said...

Yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed it :D I was trying to avoid peach being the totally overwhelming theme, which seems common when one thinks "Georgia" heheh

Wow your Vacation sounds great.

Wanted to say THANK YOU sooooo much for my package. I could not believe how many treasures you sent me. Everything was unbelieveable. Including the beautiful sock yarn.

Again thanks sooo much. I will be posting about it tomorrow!

PS: The mug has already gotten lots of use.
