So this weekend JT and I went on our anniversary trip to Serenbe, some 1000 acres of farmland with a guest house and private cottages set against a backdrop of horses, chickens and goats, walking trails, a small lake, rolling countryside and just downright peace and quiet. It's only 40 minutes south of Atlanta, so you feel out of town, but can zip right back to reality in minutes (that part is a little sad) But after the required decompression time, it was just a lovely place to relax and do nothing. We felt far away, and that was certainly the goal. February is not necessarily the best time to be here, but it was tranquil and very laid back. I do want to come back and see the wildflower fields and walk to the waterfalls. It was pretty cold, so more time by the fire and less time hiking around! Dinner at The Hil in the community nearby was outstanding. Organic food and delicious wine hit the spot. A place to remember.
