last notes from Atlanta

Mr. Mugwump has been reading The Adventures of Brer Rabbit to Annie since she was tiny. He would tell them to her when she was small enough to ride in a backpack, on his  back, while they explored our local park. She brings a copy in the car when she knows they will have a little time to read while I pop out to run an errand. When we were in Atlanta a few weeks ago, we made a return trip to the home of Joel Chandler Harris...the author of the Uncle Remus Tales. This was Annie's choice...her pick of the trip. A delightful guide told us all sorts of fun facts about the man and the tales he created. Since we have a copy of the book from a previous visit twenty years ago, Annie picked a t-shirt as a remembrance of our day.

Annie beamed the entire visit.

Piedmont Park was Mr.M.'s choice. This beautiful spot in located right in Midtown Atlanta. If you've seen the movie Life as We Know It, this is where "Messer" went for a run early in the movie.

This park "feels" like Central Park in NYC...and was designed by the son of Central Park's designer. We had a long walk around...Mr.M. had already run his morning eight miles here at sunrise.

There are advantages to "bringing up the rear", my whole world is in front of me.

Have a great weekend...thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

Enjoy the day,


  1. Looks like such fun! I love how you each get to pick a place to go in your travels. Mr. Harris' house looks so neat!

  2. Morning Robyn,
    Again another delightful view from your side of the beautiful.
    Annie is a blessed girl to have you both as parents.

  3. Annie couldn't have picked better parents than both of you. You are such a blessing to her and she always has a beautiful smile on her pretty face. You travel to such beautiful places.

    You indeed have the whole world ahead of you and you are so blessed. Have a great weekend.

  4. What a fun trip filled with so many memories for everyone.
    Hugs to you & Annie

  5. Hi Robyn... Wonderful scenery and fun times....sweet name...Wrens Nest...Blessings Francine.

  6. Hmm, I almost forgot about Brer Rabbit. Think there's a punchneedle pattern in there somewhere. You are such an inspiration!

  7. Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit, a much read tale. once upon a time, in our household. Annie made a wonderful choice. Thank you for sharing your trip with us! Greetings, Julie.

  8. Hi Robyn,
    I have been an abset blogger lately but wanted to be sure to pop by and say "Hi!"
    I love how you turn each little trip into a very special moment and that each one of you gets to choose what will make it even more so!! How wonderful for all of you!!
    Take care and have a lovely week!
    Warm Hugs~~

  9. The Wren's Nest would have been my pick of the litter. My family lives down in Georgia and I love the culture there. Thank you for sharing pictures of your trip. ...Blessings...Pam

  10. Ahhh, yes....another thing we have in common - "bringing up the rear...." as I seem to do with blog posts of late....

    Personally (and no offense to Mr. MW), I much prefer Miss Annie's choice. What an enchantingly delightful place to live and dream...and visit.... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
