One last holiday event, something we planned long before the hustle and bustle of December even started.  A wonderful way to complete the Christmas Season...

Yesterday my sweet daughter treated me to a delightful outing for some hot chocolate, complete with sprinkles, (we brought our own  sprinkles  to add a little hot chocolate cheer!)

. We went to a local coffee house "on the square" in downtown Newnan  .   We also enjoyed a warm cinnamon roll, covered in buttercream. Oh Yum!!

It's so delightful to spend this time with someone so special. 

We talked of things to come, future plans.  SIL will be graduating from college this spring and they are thinking of their future, thinking of where it might take them, which might be far from me . I'm trying not to panic :)

The coffee house was warm and welcoming.  Outside we were having the coldest temperatures since last winter. It was a bracing 25 degrees, brrrrrr.  We could see the gorgeous courthouse outside our window.

After we enjoyed our hot chocolate we ventured out into the cold and walked a bit .  Downtown Newnan is beautiful.  Full of quaint shops.

This is the original library.  I heard there was a plan to return it to it's original use. I wish they would take that awful sign off of the top of the building.  

We were so excited when the bells started ringing.  First the one in the courthouse rang out. 

Then the church bells rang. The sound was wonderful,  and the churches are beautiful.

The homes in the area are very old and gorgeous and there is Civil War history here

We admired the homes in the area, then we headed home feeling quite content!  I hope you've had a lovely Wednesday.  Thanks for stopping by!
