Beautiful Earth Organics in Peachtree City

One thing I've learned in my nearly three years as a freelance writer and editor is that I have to be intentional about scheduling time for my own projects. Last week, I planned ahead and actually had Friday listed as a sacred writing day on my calendar. It's taken me a while to learn this, but my commitments to myself are just as important as my commitments to clients and everyone else. And so it was that I was looking for a coffee shop where I could spend a few hours and focus on editing my first cozy mystery. A little Googling and I discovered a new-to-me place just ten minutes up the road, in Peachtree City, called Beautiful Earth Organics. It's at 300 Willowbend Rd., located near First Baptist Church of Peachtree City.

When I looked online, I saw they had great reviews, and it sounded as if they were quite open to visitors who wanted to come in and sit a spell. They offered organic coffees and teas, I learned, so this looked like a place I needed to know about.

The other thing that lured me there was a review I saw of something they call the "Fayette Fog." Peachtree City is in Fayette County, and their Fayette Fog is a creamy Earl Grey concoction, and Oh. My. Goodness. This drink was incredible, with a delicious Earl Grey (they fill the silken tea bag themselves with fresh loose leaf tea), infused with vanilla and then a little froth on top. Heavenly!

I'd also read on their Facebook page about their Green Tea Cookies. What I did not realize until I was there in person is that these were mega cookies, about five or six inches in diameter. Mine was fresh out of the oven and brimming with white chocolate chips and sultanas. Again: heavenly!

Best of all, I spent several hours there poring over my manuscript, noting what works and what doesn't and what I need to rewrite before I submit my novel for publication. It was definitely time well spent, and the delicious new treats made it an enjoyable as well as productive day!

  10. Had to chuckle about the giant cookie, so American, big! It did look delicious. They are just the right color for a St. Patrick's day party.

  11. Angela, this new place is where I am sure locals will find you. This sounds like a wonderful place and close to your home. I am sure before long you will find the chair and table or counter space that you call your own. That is what I do at our bistro a few minutes from where I live, and they have gigantic chocolate chip and walnut cookies here, too. Love your posts and you, blessings, Nancy Carr
