Loving Atlanta!

Well I've been here in Atlanta for a little over a week and I've already done so much. It's even more amazing than I thought it would be. I'm not having any problems adjusting to the 70 degree weather, walks in piedmont park, bike rides exploring midtown, cocktails on the patio and so many other things.

The people here are very friendly. Rex and I got invited to a "Yappy Hour" at the park near by on Fridays. I've been taking him running with me and it turns out he is even more out of shape than I am. I might do a 10K in July...I'll keep you posted on that.

My apartment is great and is in the perfect location so I'll be walking or riding my bike to class. I have everything set up and organized so it feels like home. Elyse (Audra's sister) moved in today. It's nice to have a familiar face around.

Here are some pics to better sum up the past week...

1hour to go...

Rain is welcoming me to GA., but that's ok...I'm feeling optimistic so I'll consider it a sign of luck. I've been packing all week (with lots of help from mom) loaded the truck this morning, and left Ohio around 5pm. Audra and I have been driving for 10 hours straight and we have discovered that rex has a bladder the size of lake Erie because he has yet to pee. He has been such a good boy though. The ipod hook-up i had installed before I left has been a life saver for the trip (again...thanks mom) no static and good tunes make for a great road trip. The reality that I'll actually be living here still has not set in but something tells me that next Friday after Audra leaves and as I'm getting my bookbag packed and ready for school, it will hit me.

Miss you all already!
