There were so many cute stores that carried some of Tim’s favorite clothing lines that he can’t find in Tampa, and I picked up birthday gifts for my dad and sister as well as a fun coffee mug I had pinned on Pinterest. We stopped by the toffee store, Let them eat Toffee, and were overwhelmed with the choices. We got a bunch of toffee, some chocolate covered bacon, and spiced chile mango. It has all tasted delicious. We also each got a King of Pops pop. I had the key lime pie, which had a graham cracker frozen into it, and Tim had the coconut lemongrass.
They had four painted horses on the corners of the town square, so I had to find out what they were there for. It turns out the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society had commissioned them to raise money. Sponsors paid for them and then the sponsors got to keep them after they had been on display or they could gift them to the town to continue the display. I loved that element of the town! It added so much to them. It reminded me of other exhibits of similar nature in bigger cities (like the cow parade).
We left Saturday afternoon to head to Atlanta to celebrate our first anniversary. That Friday afternoon/Saturday morning experience in Newnan was so wonderful. It made me think about how we need to spend more time exploring little towns and what they have to offer. What small towns have you been to that you love?
Linking up with Sami!
