(random note, anyone miss my old food pictures? no? well here’s one anyway. My grocery haul after getting back from Christmas in Atlanta)
My dogs continue to be an endless source of amusement, of course
There have also been several moments of “Piper, go pee! It’s way below freezing out here!” “But mom, the snow makes my tongue feel funny *nom nom nom*”
And Christmas vacation brought a new appreciation for Atlanta. It only took a year and a half. The skyscrapers, running through Piedmont Park or Tech’s campus, walking the BeltLine and seeing neighborhoods grow and develop new personalities, visiting all of the places where I formed my best memories.
Driving down 10th St or Monroe, through Virginia Highlands or Inman Park, wandering Lenox Square, wandering the zoo and finding new faces (panda twins!).
I’m not moving back any time soon, at the very least I have grad school to finish, but I have more reason to look forward to trips home.
And really, I absolutely adore my friends here.
