Our First Place

8 Jan

Even though Luis and I hated your long hallway, and the several doors that had to be unlocked in order to get to our door, we loved you.   The elevators were broken more often than they worked, and when they did work, they were extremely slow, we still loved you.  Our place faced away from the sun, and never shined in our window for more than a few hours a day, making all of our plants die, but we still loved you.

You had the best ceilings and windows, so tall, and gave us a nice view of the courtyard.   We would like to thank you for the two bedrooms, we greatly appreciated them, my shoes were thankful too!  I enjoyed the open kitchen that allowed me not miss a second of my reality television shows while cooking, as well as being able to keep Luis company (or completely annoy him) when he would be in the dining room while I was in the kitchen cooking.

One thing for sure, I will not miss the unfriendly asian people that never say, “hello” or “good morning” even when you say it straight to their face.

We are not sure where we will live when we move back to Atlanta for the summer, and to be honest it kind of worries me.  Where ever it may be, I am sure it won’t be as nice as our first place.

Feast and Goodbyes

5 Dec

The weeks leading up to our move we had a few get-togethers with friends, Thanksgiving with family, and a rib feast. The better memories of moving since the worst memory was Luis and I driving 15 hours from Miami to Atlanta because the truck trailer speed limit was 55 and 6 hours to unload all our stuff and into our new place. Geesh! My back is hurting just remembering it.  Did I mention the security in the building is extreme and we had to move all our stuff through 3 doors that you could only open if you have to key? Yea… it was tough.

My uncle made Luis and I an awesome rib dinner, one of my favorite meals. He spent hours marinating then smoking them. Super yummy!

Three days before our big move we spent Thanksgiving with both our families.

And last but not least… spending time with great friends

Thank-you to everyone who put such awesome parties together and see you next year!
