Holiday Home Tours Around West Cobb & Metro Atlanta

Holiday Tour of Homes Around Metro Atlanta

So now that Labor Day has come and gone, and I just finished the Fall Season magazine, it seems OK (maybe?) to publically state that the holiday season around West Cobb is coming quickly! In fact, some of the Holiday Home Tour ticket sales will begin next week. This is my favorite time of year and it seems to go by the fastest with so many things to do! Some events happen so early, they are almost missed. So this post is to let you know about some of the events coming up and how to make sure not to miss them.
