Welcome to Atlanta!

After leaving Utah Friday afternoon (July 31), an overnight in Farmington New Mexico, and a 2 day stop in Texas to visit/rest at Brant's folks place (driving a moving truck at 55mph solo across the country can be exhausting for anyone!) we arrived in Georgia- a huge Huge HUGE thanks to Brant's brother Justin (the Utah to Texas leg) and then my sister Shannon (the Texas to Georgia leg) who helped drive our second car out.

As expected, Brant bonded immediately with the moving truck when he picked it up in Utah and was disappointed the day we went to return it in Georgia. I snapped this photo as a momentum for him during the last time he pulled in a gas station to tanker up.
















(Photos will be blurry for a while since the focus on my lens broke and I'm in the market for a new lens)

After unpacking the truck and setting up camp, first on the list was a quick visit with Brant's friend Philip (we missed you Megan!) who was in town from Washington D.C. for work. We wanted him to have a very authentic Atlanta experience, so we took him to eat at the Varsity in Atlanta located across the street from Georgia Tech.















Next order of business: a Braves game and find a house! we're in temporary place until then.

P.S. While in Texas we stopped by the Grapevine Mills Mall where I had my eyebrows threaded for the first time. It was fast, clean, and way better than waxing or tweezing- I'd recommend it if you get the chance.

Welcome Home!!! :) So sometime when you have a minute, I'd like to know about your threading experience. I've heard of it but never tried it. How does it compare to waxing? How are you both doing?

Glad to hear you guys mad safe and sound! I laughed when I read that Brant loved driving the rental truck, I could see Mike falling in love with driving one too:). Good luck house shopping!
