A Secret Oasis

Don't you just love when life presents a beautiful moment.  Saturday night my husband and I were walking back to our car after going to a hear my niece in a concert.  We'd parked several blocks away from the venue and for the first time in several weeks, temperatures in Atlanta were perfect so it was a great night to be outside walking.  
As we strolled along we walked past a hotel that I have really never noticed even though I drive by it often.  
From the sidewalk I spotted a courtyard.
The sun had gone down and the courtyard was filled with twinkly lights. 
 There were people gathered to celebrate a birthday and they invited us to join the party.  An unexpected surprise.

I'm so happy to have found this lovely getaway located in the city.  I'm looking forward to future summer evening escapes.  


  1. Sounds like a really nice place to hang out. Somehow, I cannot view the pictures.....Christine

  2. What a sweet blog you have and I soooo love your name and banner image. Pure joy! I will be back! xoxoox

  3. Hi
    I can't view the photos either I just wanted to let you know that. Yes, it was so nice out other night wish it would stay that way. Too hot for me too humid.
    How are you? Any fun trips?

  4. Wonderful to find an unexpected treasure in your own city.

  5. How beautiful! I do hope you joined in the fun and made some new friends...I suspect you did!

  6. Oh C that sounds like the beginning of a very good novel! What a perfect evening it must have been.

  7. It looks just amazing and what a find and even better being asked to the party.
    I once put a pin in a map and selected a holiday from that pin prick. The place was amazing, a quiet beach on the west coast of Scotland. I had one of the best holidays ever.

  8. It looks like a place out of the past...as if the Great Gatsby was going to walk through the door! How nice to be invited to a party like that!

  9. That isn't the Georgian Court is it??.....it's lovely....
    where in town is it? Isn't that what we all love about living in Atlanta.....how friendly the people are to invite you to join in their party....I am so glad we have decided to stay here....
