Let the birthday freebies begin 🎈
Today, I took a trip to Atlanta. Originally, I planned to bike the Silver Comet Trail and venture to get some birthday freebies afterwards, but the rain switched my plans around.
Before biking, I ended up going to the Corner Bakery Cafe in Buckhead. For my free birthday reward, I could get any bakery sweet. I had never been to Corner Bakery, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when I saw the blueberry handpie staring back at me from behind the glass display, I knew that was going to be my freebie. A pastry stuffed with gooey, blueberry, goodness, all free and all mine — yum.
Then, I was able to drive right down the road (surprisingly, traffic wasn’t too bad considering I was in Buckhead), and get my freebie at Caribou Coffee — a free medium beverage of my choice. I had never been to Caribou Coffee either, so I asked the barista some questions about the coolers and signature drinks, and quickly decided to get a blended Turtle Mocha — a cold, blended beverage mixed with coffee, milk, caramel, and your choice of chocolate (I chose milk chocolate, upon the barista’s suggestion). SO good, and free.
Since the rain didn’t seem like it would be letting up anytime soon, I happily enjoyed both the handpie and the turtle mocha while working on some job applications for the Mile High City – oh yeah, did I mention I’m moving from Atlanta to Denver in less than a month?

forever frugal & free,
