I just made it home from an amazing visit with my family in Georgia. I am so very thankful for my family and having time to spend with my clan. One of the highlights of this trip was the introduction of my niece and nephew to an entire branch of our family.
I started my week off with a very budget friendly night on the town at Smith’s Olde Bar with a quick detour over to HobNob.
I love that I’ve found a way to hop into The City and catch up with my friends for a little quality time when I visit the A. The music was definitely on point and we had a great time.
Next up it was time to prep for the arrival of the California Colliers! I decided to make them homemade pizzas for their welcome to Georgia.
Y’all have heard me gush over my niece and nephew before but these moments are so precious to me. I only get to see them in person once or twice a year because they live so far away.
I also allowed myself the opportunity to wrestle one of my fears to the ground this trip and wore my 2-piece bikini out in public for the first time to the beach. Might sound like a small thing but it really was big for me and I know it helped that I was surrounded by my family. 😆🤗
I’ve got to cut this one short because work calleth and I have been out for a week. 😊
