A Visit to the BB&T Atlanta Open

Yesterday I had the awesome opportunity to head to the BB&T Atlanta Open that's held every year at Atlantic Station. This week-long tournament has been a part of tennis since 1921 - isn't that crazy?! And even crazier, I had never attended a professional tennis match (I'm a baseball kind of gal) until yesterday, and it was so much fun! 

Not only did we get to sit in the shade (a luxury at this particular grand stand), but we were treated to beverages, brunch, and great company. I had so much fun mingling with passionate tennis aficionados and other spectators who were excited to be there, too; we met some great women who helped us novices understand the game more and gave us all kinds of insight. Plus, it didn't hurt that the players happened to be pretty cute, too. Just sayin'.

We saw Jack Sock vs. Denis Kudla which was a great match to watch and ended up being close in the second set. Kudla was the victor, but luckily for Sock, he still has a chance with doubles. Whew, learning more about tennis is definitely in my future so that I can understand the matches even more...apparently some matches have been known to go on for hours. 

If you're in the Atlanta are, there's still time to check out the tournament this weekend. There's all kinds of tournament events around Atlantic Station going on, so there really is something for the entire family. Tickets are still available, and if you're lucky, you'll get to see John Isner, a Georgia bulldawg, claim is third BB&T Atlanta Open victory in a row. 

Thanks so much to Kelly at Kale Me Kelly for organizing this event for all of us! 

P.S. There's still time to catch some great behind the scenes action of the day on Snapchat. Follow me there @nicolemelv!

Take Me There: Watercolor, Florida

Every year, we head with my husband's family to Watercolor, Florida. Watercolor is a quaint neighborhood right next door to Seaside where picket fences and pastel paint colors rule the design aesthetic. Not only are the beaches beautiful, but the towns themselves evoke nostalgia and embrace the small town lifestyle (if you want to read more about living in Watercolor year-round, check out Seleta's blog). We are incredibly blessed to spend an entire week at the beach with our entire family. There's something for everyone, and each year the trip is filled with relaxation, celebration, and good family fun. 

Instead of sharing a whole bunch of family vacation photos, I thought I would share the home that we rented this year. With five bedrooms and a carriage house, there was a place for everyone to sleep (including adorable baby Jack). But, the decor of the space was absolutely stunning, and it is definitely a home I would rent again and again. If you're interested in renting this gorgeous home, you can find the listing here. I cannot recommend it enough for a large family or group!
