Why I Love Atlanta

Doesn’t that title sound like a fourth grade essay?

I have enjoyed being here so much. I seriously miss my kids, but I know they are having an absolute blast. They don’t miss us, from what I hear! I’m so proud of their behavior since we’ve been gone. It makes me feel much better as a mom, knowing that I’ve sort of taught them how to not act like wild animals away from home.

But I love Atlanta because the buildings are so pretty at night. I am a city girl, but probably not a BIG city girl. However, I love a big city. I told Michael that if we come to this conference every year, I would be very okay with that. It’s a beautiful place.

I also love Atlanta, because when your husband is at an engineering conference and takes you to the trade shows, the old men there think you’re pretty. I had a very nice man who is apparently a bigwig somewhere tell me that I make the room look good. I was the only female in the room, so I put no stock in that compliment. It just made me laugh really hard. He was probably 75 if he was a day!

I also love Atlanta because it has an Ikea. And Ikea is blue and humongous.

Finally, I love Atlanta because I’m so relaxed and happy right now, and my sweet husband has treated me like a million and twelve bucks. I don’t ever think I deserve a break, because my life is pretty good as it is. I have kid stress, but I would never be one to say, “I DESERVE to get away!” But it does feel good to be treated special and not have to be responsible for anyone but myself.

So thanks Atlanta. You’re pretty, you have good food, the shopping is beyond my wildest dreams, and you’ve brought out the best in my guy. You’re at the top of my list as of today.

But tomorrow…I’ll be home.

No contest.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
