This week on our drive we are driving around the community of Milton. It’s a more rural suburb of Atlanta that features beautiful estates and horse farms. One of the most beautiful collections of horse farms is on Brittle Road. The estates have softly rolling hills with horses grazing, a picturesque pond that if the sun is hitting just right then you can spot some very large fish, and at the very end of the road is an old truck with an American flag in the back. I walk on Brittle Road often, it reminds me of home. I grew up on a dirt road with horses and a barn that my dad built. After a scenic drive down Brittle Road, turn right on Bethany Road and then a right on Providence. Follow Providence Road through the traffic circle and on the right, you will find The Union. This is definitely a local favorite! May I suggest starting with a Troublemaker and the Black Bean Quinoa Cake appetizer and for your meal the Curried Chicken Bowl? After lunch, you should definitely take a drive down Freemanville Road. You will see many lovely estates, horses, goats and donkeys and when you come to this barn you'll know you're almost there! This barn is just before the turn into my neighborhood. Which means since you’re over this way, you should stop in for a visit! We can talk about art as long as you want!! After our visit, it may be time for dinner so we should head up the road to Birmingham Crossroads. At Seven Acre restaurant, you will find delicious dinner and drinks and the opportunity to sit on the front porch and enjoy the evening. After dinner, you may as well walk next door to Waltzing Matildas and enjoy an outdoor concert. This will be a day to remember!
