The ATL

2 Comments

So I apologize for the looong delay in posts. A lot has happened in the past few months. I obviously have not completed many 101 items recently, which will come back to bite me come next spring. But I’m hoping I can have time to think about those again in the near future.

Here’s the quick rundown of my recent life. In August I packed up 8 years worth of stuff from Nashville and moved back in with my parents outside of Atlanta. It was bittersweet – excited for something new but extremely sad to leave what had become my home. I started the MSW program at Georgia State and it hasn’t been exactly what I hoped (more on that to come soon).
The good news is, Atlanta is growing on me.  Luckily there were already a few wonderful people here who made it a pretty easy transition into the social scene, so I have not been lacking in things to do.

I started going to boot camp with my friend at Stone Mountain Park – which is minutes from the house and a wonderful place to escape. We spend other days there climbing the mountain and running/walking around the mountain!

I went to numerous Braves game in a short amount of time with different groups and it was a blast every time (even the last wild card game of the season….)

awesome win for Christen’s first Braves game!

We spent an entire gorgeous day in Piedmont Park playing kickball and volleyball, then went to an awesome concert at The Tabernacle – Grace Potter!!

But I have, of course, already had plenty of great return trips to Nashville for weddings and football!

Homecoming! VU-UMass

I have also been able to enjoy some wonderful new restaurants. I have met lots of new people and spending time with my parents hasn’t been all that bad 🙂 Nashville will always hold a special place in my heart, but Atlanta isn’t all that bad. And I am especially pumped to celebrate the birthday of my wonderful friend of 19 years!

Will try to not be so sporadic with posting now that I am feeling more settled and am doing lots of cool things in  new city!
