Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Annual Lights

*soft inhale and exhale* Ahhhh! Don’t you just love this time of year? A belle most def does! Thanksgiving was wonderful (I hope yours was too), and we are more excited about the new season upon us. It’s the season of gorge holiday lights, cookies and plenty of hot chocolate. You know what I’m talking about! Speaking of lights, the sis and I had the opportunity to check out ATL’s Botanical Garden’s 2nd annual light show and it is beautiful.

Seeing lights has been a holiday tradition since the sis and I were little girls. Ma would take us around nearby neighborhoods to check out all of the houses decked in the most fab decorations. The Atlanta Botanical Garden has taken the cake, y’all! There’s soooo much to see and they don’t disappoint with the lights and extreme designs.

We ooohh and ahhhed over the snowflakes, flowers, trees, choochoo trains, and more. Check out some of what we saw:

These lights are magical and they have the ability to bring out the inner child in any adult. It’s nice to feel like a child every now and then, right? Anytime we can ditch the stresses of life and enjoy the simple things (lights included) we are all in. ‘Garden Nights Holiday Lights’ is a must-see and worth any drive to see it.

Get your tickets and let us know if you eat at MetroFresh, the garden’s café, where you can purchase some of the freshest eats. Tweet a belle and tell us how much fun you had sipping on cocoa/cider, chowing on hot chili/soups, and roasting your own s’mores at their fire pit.

Before I forget to tell you, do dress warmly, wear comfy but cute shoes and head to see the lights. The show ends January 5, 2013 so there’s plenty of time to check it out!

* Disclosure: We were provided tickets during a media preview.  As always our opinion is a belle’s own. Special thanks to the Atlanta Botanical Garden and Danny, our sweet personal tour guide, for showing us nature in lights!
