Memories of Atlanta

Betsy at Stone Mountain, Georgia.  June 2, 2009.

Betsy at Stone Mountain, Georgia. June 2, 2009.

One of the advantages of having so much rain over the last few days is that I’ve had the opportunity to work on some of my older pictures that had been copied to disk to be worked on ‘later’.  Well, ‘later’ came this past week, and I have enjoyed working with pictures that I had practically forgotten about.

One of the folders I found was of pictures taken in Atlanta, Georgia, in June, 2001, about three weeks before Betsy and I were married.  We had been invited to the wedding of the oldest son of one of Betsy’s childhood friends.  Since Betsy and Susan, the mother, were good friends, we were invited to come down early for the rehearsal dinner on Friday evening.  I got to meet another of Betsy’s childhood friends, Nita, and learn some things about my future bride that I didn’t know (all good, of course).

Saturday morning Betsy and I went to Stone Mountain Park outside of Atlanta to enjoy the day and see some of the scenic attractions of that beautiful area.  After an enjoyable few hours at the park we went back to the city for the wedding and reception.

    Love you,

    I had forgotten all about that place & didn’t remember it being in Atlanta – Learn (or should I say… remember, in this case) something new everyday! hehehe

    Many years ago, I did get to see stone mountain. My son was living in Georgia at the time and that was one of the things he took us to see.

    I’ve never been there. But I do have a Stone Mountain leather purse. ha ha! I think they’re made there. ??

    Great picture of Betsy…I’d like to go to Stone Mountain sometime. We had the pleasure of visiting Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge on our way to Virginia in late May.

    You two are such a “happily ever after” story 🙂 God knew what he was doing when he brought you together. Did your mutual love of waterfalls come before or after the marriage?
