A need to get out of this town and hit the big city, of Atlanta, even for a few hours was needed for some soul recharging and a bit of fun family time. There is just something about driving into a city and seeing the beauty of the skyscrapers that makes my heart pitter patter. When we lived near Philly, it was the same way. Does that make me a city girl at heart?
Little one loved the Aquarium --crazy busy as it was Saturday but fun. The Beluga's are absolutely beautiful and I could spend a lot of time just watching their giant gracefulness. Peace was the word that came to mind.
These little guys were a hoot and putting on wonderful fun for all the camera's.
The really cool part is the underwater walkway and seeing all the different species co-habitate with each other. The guide stated that there is sometimes an 'unwanted snack' by the bigger one's. Ohh...that's not nice fish business :) He stated they feed them all ALOT.
The whale shark was 30 FEET long--can't even think about that one.
This guy was really smiling at me, kinda scary! Freaked little one out.
This sting ray had to have been 6 feet wide, it was HUGE.
All in all, I even enjoyed the 2 hour car ride there and back. Yeah, it was needed that bad.
So today, I stood in my craft studio door and stared. Yeah, stared, at the heaps and the mounds, papers, ribbons, buttons, artist pads, pencils, yadda-yadda.
and it sometimes takes a bit of this to get that.
A bit of inspiration for Spring 2012. Really, winter decides to show Feb 11 in the South?!
Here's to winter weather this week--no excuse for me not to have a hot toddy to warmeth my little soul. Come on over, I'll make you one too and we can stare through the door into my studio. Yeah, its that bad.
