Our last Georgia visitor, one of my best friends from back home, flew in Friday and left today. We were able to hang out in Atlanta for a while, a city I will truly miss (not the traffic and crazy drivers though - oye!). We hit up the World of Coca Cola. Walked through Olympic Park and ate at Hard Rock Cafe before driving back to Augusta. The rest of the weekend was spent doing a canal boat tour down the Augusta Canal, hitting up the Saturday Market for the best ice cream I've ever had and eating lots of good food. We also went to the pool for the first time with Grace. She LOVED it. We watched movies, stayed up late talking and took lots of pictures.
I'm so glad that Kara was able to make this trip to see us. We have been friends for basically ever and she is one of a few friendships that lasted into our adult life. We are at completely different places in life, but it doesn't matter - because we just pick up where we left off each and every time.
But now that the guest bedroom is empty, it is time to get down to the nitty gritty. I'm not really ready for pictures to come down off of the wall and rooms to start being packed up. But it's time. We've got a handful of weekends left - already packed with things going on. Our going away dinner is on the calendar. Orders are in hand. So ready or not, let's pack?
What is your best packing tip?!
