My daughter, Megan, has accepted a new job in Atlanta, Georgia. She asked if I would help her make the cross country drive and get her settled in a new place. I've been to Atlanta only twice, but loved it each time. So off we went across Arizona, New Mexico. Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and finally Georgia! I have to admit the Southwest can appear pretty boring - at least from the freeway. But the Southeast is already abloom for Spring with flowering pear, redbud, forsythia, and tulip trees. We ate some delicious meals, checked out new shopping venues, visited with dear old friends, and generally had a great time! (And we're still speaking to each other after having spent 24/7 with each other for the past 8 days!) I think she's really going to have some exciting new experiences.
Good luck, Megan!
Here we go!
Snacks for the car.
We had to stop at Bubba's!
Yes, this is the World's Largest Cross.
Welcome to Georgia!
Meg's new apartment- on the third floor, again.
I ordered some fabulous new Spring and Country French items for my store!
