Our first stop is Phipps Plaza. After the requisite Starbucks sojourn, we make our lists, check them twice and belly up to the South's most renowned jolly old elf for a few memorable minutes of animated holiday chatter and paparazzi-ish photo taking.
After popping in a few shoppes and taking our traditional family photos behind the big tree, our party of nine then makes their way to the Nordstrom Cafe for a delectable lunch. I am still drooling over my warm goat cheese salad...
It IS the most wonderful time of the year!!!
