We had a pretty busy Saturday this past weekend. After our usual Saturday morning visit to the post office to send off orders, we headed out to THYME AFTER THYME for ONE MORE last time - Missy ended up winning a RAFFLE they had last weekend, and we went to go pick up the steel SHEPHERD'S HOOK she had won. They told us that we could look around and buy any more of their remaining plants at a deep discount, and we couldn't pass up that offer...
Afterwards, we headed back into Athens and stopped in at COMMUNITY, this really cool downtown clothing and accessories boutique. They had just started carrying some JEWELRY made by Missy, and we dropped in to replenish their stock (more on that later)...
Then, after Community, we headed over to BEAR HOLLOW PARK where they were having their "ZOO DAY" event. We got to pet some animals (one of Missy's favorite pastimes) and, best of all, we got to see the BLACK BEARS up close, having an afternoon snack, all before heading back in-town to attend the PULASKI STREET ART CRAWL (more on that later...)
