Georgia on My Mind

* Y'all, this whole moving thing is becoming more real each and every day! It's so overwhelming to think that in less than two months my husband and I will have moved ourselves, our cats, and our stuff to Georgia. 

Woah baby.

Last week, I told my employer that I was moving and I did not expect to respond the way that I did. I cried like a baby. My boss/supervisors/co-workers have been a part of my life for two years and it's going to be tough to say good-bye. I also had a Realtor come by the house on Tuesday so that we could talk about property management...what reality check. We. Are. Moving. Wow...

* While we haven't found anyone to rent our house yet, we did find a place to live in ATL! Until we sell our house we will be renting the cutest little apartment! It's quite spacious, has a fire place, vaulted ceilings, and a balcony...can we say YES!!! Not to mention that the community offers free tennis lessons AND has direct access to the Chattahoochee River...need I say more?? (Those lessons will come in handy to help me scratch # 15 off of the list!) I am so pumped about our new home and can't wait to move in and decorate! :)

* For a few weeks Keith and I have talked about freeing our turtles. These little guys have been in our lives for 2 years but lately we've felt that they were just miserable. The tank was not anywhere near large enough, and now that we are moving we definitely needed to make a decision...


Besides the fact that I sound like a 5 year old (and that KC kept telling me to back up) I really love this video of our turtles. (Don't you just love the half sunken sign??) The last one did eventually dive into the pond. :) This pond is in my bro/sis-in-law's neighborhood and is supposedly "safe", but I did see this sign...


Not sure how I feel about that! According to KC, this sign is just a precautionary measure. Allegedly. 

* That's all I've got for now with my ATL updates. My sis and I are meeting Keith for the 4th of July so that we can explore our new home, catch a ballgame (I think I am becoming a bit of a Braves fan), and visit the apartment complex. 

Happy Thursday!

Oh! You'll LOVE Atlanta. A very good friend of mine lived there most of her life and I adored visiting her, and she's just counting the days until she can move back! Happy packing! ~Kristin (from Windy Poplars...now from Vignettes)
