Where I’m From. Where I’ve Been. Where I’m At.

I’m a little drunk. Ish. So, i have been thinking about my neighborhood a lot today. A friend from my old neighborhood is grappling with the whole educating-a-kid-in-intown-Atlanta-schools issue. She asked my opinion on a living in my old neighborhood (EAV) vs. living in my new neighborhood (Northlake Mall/Lavista/Briarlake) vs. living in the real OTP […]

Sitting On the Edge Of My Future

I am pretty sure that Facebook is slowly eating my blog. . . . However, here I am. I have been scanning more old photos, and came across a great set of pics from college. They are mostly from my college graduation. Here is the whole set on Flickr. A few things that initially struck […]

All joking about reading addictions aside, Evan’s wedding was a blast. Can you say Tiki bar? How about Shrimp and Grits?

Humiliating Photo of the Day

1990_0018.jpg Originally uploaded by Dogwood Girl. This one almost needs no description. I guess I took this photo (thank god for little blessings) and I am not sure how it came about, but dear lord it makes me laugh just to look at it. I still talk to Owen, Brett, Camille and Jason. No clue […]
