Gallivanting. It's one of my all time favorite words.
According to Merriam Webster to gallivant means:
to go about usually ostentatiously or indiscreetly with members of the opposite sex
Since college graduation, my best girlfriends and I regularly enjoy a "Girl's Night Out" together. (It's also known as GNO in email language.) My husband affectionately refers to it as "gallivanting." During our college years, we made the most of our time socializing at "University of West Georgia" located in the quaint southern town of Carrollton. After graduation, we all got smart jobs and enjoyed discovering the nightlife of Atlanta. I suppose at that time in our lives these GNO could accurately be described as gallivanting. How else were we supposed to find single, eligible Southern Gentlemen?
We went to the beautiful Reynolds Plantation this past weekend for our "GNO." We spent the first few hours catching up around this amazing kitchen island and indulging in some adult beverages. Thanks to my sister's gracious in-laws for letting us borrow the house for the weekend!
And of course, no true southern kitchen would be complete without Paula.

Later, we relaxed poolside.
We had such a great time at the pool and hanging out at the house that we never made it to the world famous Ritz-Carlton as we had planned. But don't worry, I'll be returning very soon to explore the Ritz a little bit more and I promise to let you know just how fabulous it really is!
The next morning we woke up to these glorious Georgia Pines, drank a lot of coffee and returned home to our sweet little families. Until next time....
