Photo(s) of the Day: Vacation Reveal

For those of you who have been following my blog the last couple of days, you may or may not have guessed where we traveled. The answer….

Atlanta, Georgia!

Amazingly, I actually won an Atlanta Getaway through Passports With Purpose. They raised over $100,000 through the raffle to install water wells in Haiti (which is a passion of mine). I spent $40 on 4 raffle tickets, and I chose this one because I love scuba diving/marine life. I have no idea what my chances of winning were, but I do know they were very slim. I figured the $40 would be a nice Christmas donation. I had no idea I’d actually win. The prize package included:

  • A two-night stay at a suite in the Omni Hotel (thank you Omni for donating the prize package!)
  • Tickets to the Georgia Aquarium and diving with whale sharks (the only place in the world you’re guaranteed to swim with them!)
  • Tickets to the CNN World Headquarters Tour
  • Tickets to the Coca-Cola Factory
  • A $200 spa credit at the hotel

It didn’t take long for me to find available dates, book the trip, and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience! Below are a few photos of Atlanta. More photos of the trip to come.

Project 52 Week 25: Biker Blur

Wow, last week was such a busy week! I had a tough time deciding between photos of a triathlon, Grandma’s birthday, drag queen bingo (I can admit to it since it was a fundraiser), or two pool parties with friends. Oh … or the gorgeous rose vase we received as a wedding gift, shattered in a thousand pieces after a cleaning incident. I actually cried.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a creative photo, so I thought I’d take a chance with this one. What do you think? Is it creative, or just a big blur?
