Athens love

A few weekends ago, for my Brother in Law's birthday, we headed up to Athens, Georgia to see Fitz and the Tantrums. They are a terrific band but it felt a little strange being in my old college town. It's been 6 years since I've graduated. It makes one feel a bit old just being there, but oh my is everything so cheap compared to Atlanta prices. We went out to dinner and our totally was less than half what it would be in the city.  We walked around some of our old favorite haunts and rocked out to some great music. It was nice to relive some of the good memories, college, my wedding, graduations but you can't stay forever.

Planes and cars

The past few months have been hectic. I've also been busy playing. Eric and I have been flying. When we can. It is a truly amazing thing to be able to do. We've flown to South Carolina to visit Eric's parents and as far as St. Simon's island for a surprise Valentine's holiday. A Valentine's day that might just go down in my books as the best. Flying, great food, and a blue and white ribboned box. Not sure what I did to deserve it all but it was amazing.

When we haven't been flying we bought a new car and it drives like a dream. That picture is from a drive we did on the Dragon's tail this weekend. It's Eric's new baby. We also have been tweaking my Mini and making it better. It had a power steering leak and Eric and I fixed it! I am really proud of that. Finally having a true garage has allowed us to do actual work on our cars when we want too.

Next up is breaks on my car. I am excited about it.
