fall, fall weekend

There is something about fall that is so life-giving. Even though it means the trees are dying and, in Atlanta, the 80+-degree weather is far different than the crisp Indiana days I grew up with. It's light and invigorating. It makes me want to speed up and slow down all at once. Hurrying to do every activity, and yet sipping slowly on my iced pumpkin lattes, which, I would personally like to rename Iced&Spiced. 

Saturday was one that was both restful and busy in the best way. It was a cup-filling, heart-happifying sort of weekend. 

Saturday morning we worked out outside, so excited for the cool morning. After that, we headed over to Grant Park for Root City Market, which is a pop-up shop that brings local artists together.

I finally tried Octane Coffee (Bucket List #78) and I can firmly say it was worth the wait. 

After that we visited my awesome roommate, whose business, Lily & Lucille, participated in the Salvage Market downtown. I loved seeing Melissa and Stacy's shop in action. 

Saturday night, Duke and Sam and I went to Antico (Margherita pizza + fall brews, yes!) for dinner, then a Nathan Angelo concert. 

It was the perfect mix of a planned and unplanned day, exploring this city that continues to feel like home, and always stays a little unfamiliar, a little surprising.

Other weekend highlights include an 80s benefit at Monday Night Brewery (first time there - loved it!). A new haircut Sunday (it's short, eek!) and a dinner at the W Buckhead Sunday night. I was all over this fine city! 

I hope your weekend was crisp and smooth, just how fall ought to be!
