In the words of Dj Khaled, Another one! So SisterAv was on the road again with another quick weekend trip to ATL Shawty (we just like saying that). This weekend was jam packed with goat farms, 3 am cafe talks, and some cool filing cabinets?! Let's just say it was an experience, which had to include a first time trip to Waffle House.
We saw a different part of Atlanta this weekend, one that didn't fit the mainstream idea of what it means to visit the "A". We feel like one of the best experiences about this trip was visiting the Goat Farm. Now you might be thinking, "You went all the way to Atlanta to visit a goat farm?", but let me tell the uniqueness of this place. Not only can you find goats, but there is so much more. The were over 500 shops on the property that catered to local artist of all kinds, whether it be print, metal, or web design we saw a bit of everything, but the best part of this place was the photographs we took. This has to be one of the dopest places to go shooting, it's like a photographer's holy grail as far as locations go. Down below were some of the shots we were able to capture at this mystic place.
As I write this blog the word that I keep wanting to use is experience, because that is what the weekend was, an experience. If you want a great view of the city.....You know what views I'm talking about, the one's in the Tyler Perry Tv shows, the infamous Jackson Street Bridge is the place to go! When I tell you views for days and there is no exaggeration in that statement. You can see the whole city's skyline.
Another place with some killer views was Piedmont Park. It's located a mile from downtown and gives off those central park New York vibes. One thing that I absolutely loved about this park was that at any point, there was some type of beautiful view. This was one of this parks once again you just had to experience. Not to mention the casual roll down a giant hill that was the highlight of our day! We topped off the day, with Pizza from a Antico's (linked the website for my fellow foodies) and a stroll through Atlantic station.
If you ever wonder what it's like to have conversations at 800 feet in the air. Take a visit to Stone Mountain. For some reason the air was much clearer at the top. It might be mind over matter, but as soon as we stepped off the sky ride onto the top of stone mountain I felt so much clarity, almost as if I could breathe better. It's amazing that there is so much beauty in the world, that we sometimes forget to take a step back and appreciate it. We get so consumed by the hustle and bustle of daily life that we must remind ourselves to STOP and take a moment to experience and appreciate the vast beauty that is sometimes right in front of us.
What can we say, other than The Atlanta Experience was short and sweet. We lived and laughed with old and new friends. Had a blast searching for secrets locations on a goat farm, to being such posers on a the Jackson street bridge, to sky riding up a mountain while stuffing our faces with all the glorious food in between. Let's just say, that is was an experience!
