Three weeks from today I'm making the drive up to Indy. It's a scary thought, but I'm getting more excited every day! Dena, whose 2 amazing children I babysat for in college, told me the other day that she thinks it's the friendships that form when you're vulnerable that really are your lifelong friends. I think she's on to something! Don't get me wrong, I've been very blessed in Atlanta and there are certainly people here that I will keep in touch with, but I'm so anxious to get closer to those people that have been there through EVERYTHING over the years. I have some really phenomenal friends in the midwest that I cannot wait to be closer to.
Anyway, I officially have an apartment! I'll be in the Meridian-Kessler area of Indy and have a great neighborhood. I have a two bedroom apartment in a small building with only 12 apartments in it. I think it's going to be a great fit! The movers are hired and I'm now the proud owner of 41 moving boxes thanks to Craigslist ($20 for the boxes and 3 rolls of bubble wrap - can't beat it!). I'm going to wait until Memorial Day Weekend to get packed up. It's really hard for me to live in chaous.
Wow....3 weeks left in Atlanta. It's sad, but it's time too.
