Hello from Athens, Georgia!
On the way to Athens I had a Synergy Kombucha.
We received a warm welcome last night when we arrived at Drew and Natalie’s house with friends, dinner and drinks waiting on us.
Natalie and Drew prepared quite a spread for dinner.
Whole wheat couscous with red bell pepper, red onion, balsamic and apple cider vinegar, basil and rosemary.
Sauteed pepperoncini peppers homegrown from Natalie’s dad.
Chicken breast and peaches grilled on cedar planks from local Athens company, Fire and Flavor.
Roasted sweet potatoes – white and traditional.
And dessert was a Lemon Lavender Cake that Natalie made with lavender from her garden. So good!
There was lots of puppy playtime (Drew and Natalie have two dogs).
Yes, those are dogs. They wouldn’t stay still long enough for me to get a good picture of them!
After dinner we headed downtown for AthFest. Drew is a sponsor this year so we had passes that allowed us to go anywhere with no cover. We checked out a lot of bands. Some good, some entertaining and some just ridiculously loud and bad.
I only have this shot of the guys.
It was a late night. I was exhausted when we finally got home at 2 a.m.
I started today with coffee from Jittery Joes. LOVE.
Promise to take more pics today! We’re heading back downtown to watch the USA World Cup game and then day two of AthFest.
