it feels like forever since my last post! i have been all over the place these past couple days. on friday, my family headed to atlanta. we got there pretty late but still had time for dinner with some friends. i had the most incredible chess pie with strawberries that had been soaked in brandy. so wonderful! on saturday we did some shopping at ikea and then headed to lagrange, ga to see some of our dearest friends. sunday morning, after a few wonderful meals and a showing of bridesmaids (which was very funny, by the way), we headed back to tennessee. last night we had a little birthday celebration of five guys and gigi's cupcakes. mom and my brother, zach, got birthday surprise, dad got cherry limeade and i got champagne, of course! this morning i flew back to new york where i am now trying to finish my final paper before my birthday tomorrow! i'll be back soon with some lovely links and the first update on mine and mackenzie's big adventure!
