#intheATH: Mr. and Mrs. Goose

In May, a pair of geese decided to make their home on one of Target’s parking lot islands. They were there for over a month and it such an odd thing to drive by. In defense of humans, I think we all kept a respectful distance, but there’s no denying these love birds got a […]

#intheATH: Burned Wendy’s

Back in February, the Wendy’s by my office caught fire. It remains closed but the menu was updated with delightful nightmare food. Forget french fries. Get yourself a Snake Burg, Dahmer Bites, or a sack of elbows! #intheATH is something my Flagpole co-workers came up with that is still really funny to me. I’m sorry […]

Endless Summer

Sometimes it feels like we left Seattle a few weeks ago, a few months ago tops. Other times, it feels like we’ve been in Athens for ages with the days just dribbling away. I was in this same limbo-funk when I first moved from New York to Seattle- and before that, when I moved from […]

Hello, 2015!

I still haven’t collected my thoughts on 2014 but I couldn’t wait to ring in the new year with fancy champagne and a new list of goals. I think this year is going to be amazing. We splurged on a bottle of Moët & Chandon for New Year’s Eve and were delighted when it was […]

Parade of Lights

Last week, Dean and I walked Downtown to see the annual Athens Christmas parade with J ‘n’ J. We had a great time and were on the way to coffee when the sky opened up for a two minute rain storm. My co-worker took this excellent video of Monsoon playing on the Flagpole/Athfest/40 Watt float: […]

Life Lately

This past Monday was so freakishly warm and lovely, I almost forgot it was November. The east coast has wilder weather swings than the west- that’s for sure- but we’re loving the extra sunshine. Dean snapped this photo on our walk around the University of Georgia campus. My October reads (still reading The Bone Clocks)|Lunch […]

Carlton Daytrippers

A little bit ago at work, I’d spotted an ad for ‘Neat Pieces’ in Carlton, Georgia and kept it in mind when we visited Watson Mill Bridge Park since Carlton is so close. It is definitely worth the trip! Jimmy, the owner, has amassed a staggering amount of old books (history, war propaganda, vintage picture […]

Southern Living

Athens, Georgia has been our home for about two and a half weeks now. Little by little, we’re furnishing the apartment and I started a new job last week so things are goin’ well. Still, we’re homebodies and slow adapters. The most excitement we’ve seen so far is our ill-timed walk through a torrential thunder […]
