Destin to Atlanta

Sometimes even those of us who live in "paradise" need a vacation. You know, Destin, Florida- sugar white beaches, emerald green waters, the "world's luckiest fishing village". After having worked what seemed like eons with no vacation, I needed a break. My husband and I did just that this weekend. We went of all places, to Atlanta! You know, it's usually Atlantans that come to Destin. But I needed my "city" fix. I mean, more specifically, my shopping fix. We drove six hours to stay at the J.W. Marriott in Buckhead, attached to Lenox Square with about 250 stores, and across the street from Phipps Plaza, 150 more. We're talking electronics, clothes, furniture, make-up, The world's largest Pottery Barn, Apple, Sephora, soap stores, clothing stores, Neiman Marcus, Gucci and more. And my favorite shoe place, Macy's.... (why isn't there a Macy's in Destin?) We did enough walking that the incredible food wasn't a problem. Orange-basil salmon, mounds of sushi, French cheese cake, chocolate torte and sambuca. We must have walked ten miles. What did I splurge on? A lip-stick red humongous tote that I saw in the window of Crate and Barrel. And a Turkish robe and slippers. Not for me, but for my husband! Atlanta- ahhhh.... You've soothed my spirits and energized me with your sophisticated shopping, gourmet delights, brick Georgian homes and metro flair. I'll be back.

It's Wendy!
