John and I had a great Valentine's Day--nothing sappy and romantic AT ALL. We left around 8:30 or 9:00 this morning and rode over to Warm Springs, GA. We went over to Pine Mountain about 3 years ago for our anniversary. While we were there, we went to Warm Springs to FDR's Little White House and browsed through all of the neat little shops. We were really looking forward to going back to a couple of the shops today, but it just isn't the same as it was. The Courtyard area is basically empty. There was one shop that was worth our time. We got a couple of birdhouses that we're going to take up to the lake. The couple who run that shop are moving to Manchester so they can "do things the way we want to." Apparently, changes have taken place, and from what we saw, we're not so sure it's for the best. The main street area was still a lot like it was 3 years ago, though.
After we left Warm Springs, we rode to the downtown area of Pine Mountain. We spent maybe an hour browsing there. One of the shops we went into (a gallery) had the. most. comfortable. sofa. ever. Seriously. We've said that our next set of den furniture will be leather. It is so hard to keep dog hair vacuumed off the fabric. If I have anything to do with it, we'll be going back to Pine Mountain to make our purchase. It won't be anytime soon, though. Probably not before we build (if/when) at the lake.
We stopped to have dinner at Milano's, a restaurant in Valley. Delish! And I'm still stuffed. And I have horrible garlic breath. But it was SO good. No need to worry about vampires tonight. :)
I noticed that I've had my 10,000 visitor since I installed the counter on my blog. I don't really remember how long that's been, but I know it's been SEVERAL months. I think my average number of visitors per day is probably between 40-50. Some days I have more visitors; some days I have fewer.
That's about all I have for today. I hope everyone out there has had a wonderful day with someone that you love.
Have a GREAT evening!
