drawing challenge theme / coca cola

This week's theme for the Drawing Challenge comes from none other than
 Atlanta, Georgia.  Did you  know that Atlanta is the home of Coca Cola?  


This morning I had a request from Ariane for a video from Atlanta.  I took a video while the kids and I took a walk to a nearby park that we love for it's trees, the pond, and all of its birds.  Our neighborhood is named Inman Park and is the very first suburb of Atlanta.  The streets are lined with historical homes and giant live oak and magnolia trees.  It's perfectly shaded for a nice morning walk during the hot Southern summer.  But from what I hear, we aint' seen nuthin' yet!
The video may be a tad boring and it's pretty shaky, but the song...the song is definitely worth the 3 minutes and 36 seconds.  Enjoy.

Hi Rachel, gosh it's pretty in Georgia! And your little ones are so sweet. Mine never walked nicely together, always had one pushing or taunting the other...lol. It's lovely to get a little intimate look into your family.

I don't drink pop, especially not coke, but have loads of bright red pop cans in my mind. I'd love to join the DC and come up with something. :)

Good morning from the cool Pacific Northwest, Rachel. My husband the Sailor called me from his ship in Brunswick Georgia yesterday evening and told me how hot it is there. I love the dreamy quality of your video.
I think I have an idea for the Coke DC - please count me in. -sus

Rachel said...

Susan, I've been to Brunswick. We stayed on st Simons Island just off the coast there. It's a beautiful part of Georgia. I'll count you in!

Hello to Georgia, Rachel! Totally love this song (I even did before) and your video works perfectly with it! It was fun you took me along on your walk through your neighbourhood! It looks wonderful! I was quite surprised to hear Coca Cola's from Atlanta, I didn't know that. As I loved Coke through all my teenage years and even once collected rare foreign cans, you can surely count me in on this theme! See you!

Hi Rachel, I love your lovely video & photos of Atlanta. My family are from Ga. so I do know that CocaCola comes from there. I am new to the drawing challenge but I do have something I would like to add. So could you count me in? Thanks!

I really like your blog....glad to meet you.
