An Overdue Update

I will try to make this as short and sweet as possible. I will use the help of photos to tell the story:

The month of May was a whirlwind of a month because not only did we move out of our apartment before the lease was up, we bought a house, I graduated college, and I bought a car from a friend.

Charlotte was thebomb.com!
BBA from GSU
2011 Toyota Rav4

Fast forward to September 14, 2021 and the following has occurred: We got a new roof, my fiancĂ© is a US citizen (finally!!), and we’re fostering the most adorable dogs.

A huge expense, but definitely needed.

Between today and May, we’ve

  • watched our friends get married and then move to California
  • gone camping in Acworth, GA
  • attended a Fernbank After Dark event in Atlanta
  • attempted to vacation in Florida, but then got caught in Hurricane Irma
  • babysat our neighbor’s children (2 young boys)
  • built some benches
  • lit some fires
  • cooked and baked a lot of new foods
  • supported delicious local Filipino vendors (https://kamayanatl.com/)
Fernbank After Dark events are awesome! 21+!

Camping Adventures!

On Sunday, at 7:30PM, my fiancĂ© and I made a last minute decision to go on the camping trip we planned one month ago. Earlier in the morning on Sunday we decided we were not going to be going because the weather forecast showed nothing but rain, but then it got to be later in the day and the rain had disappeared. I didn’t want $26 dollars and our smores supplies to go to waste, so we drove up to Red top Mountain and spent the night.

We pitched the tent in the dark, my flashlight died, we roasted weenies, burned marshmallows (okay, that was just me), and we woke up to a beautiful autumn view on Lake Altoona. I forgot how much I enjoy camping and we will definitely be doing this again, but maybe with friends! Camping is such a cheap and rewarding leisure activity; it is also a nice way to unwind if you feel you’ve been spending too much time around technology, work, and the general stressors in life.
