Independence Day Festivities

Well, we ended up having a rather lovely weekend. We just hung out on Friday and had dinner with our friends Matt and Jenny that night. On Saturday, we watched the women's final at Wimbledon, prepped dinner, and then enjoyed a day at the pool with about everyone in our condo buildings plus 10 of their friends. The pool was slammed, but it was a lot of fun. One of our good friends lives in the same condos, so I think about 1/3 of the people at the pool were our friends, and said friend got a keg. Good times. We enjoyed burgers, corn on the cob, fruit salad with yogurt, and fruit pizza for dinner with Matt and Jenny again before heading off to watch the fireworks in Buckhead.

My good friend, Lauren, ended up getting access to a penthouse condo at 10 Terminus Place, a condo development by her employer and my former employer, Cousins Properties. I underwrote a lot of that project, but I actually hadn't seen the finished product. It was very nice, but definitely the most impressive thing was the approximately 1500-2000 SF of outdoor balcony overlooking the best city views in Atlanta. (Something was on my camera lens, and I didn't bring my good camera, so pardon the pictures - my battery died so I didn't even get any firework pictures, but we were so close!)

We began packing on Sunday. I love packing. Not. At least we will be settled somewhere for the first time in our adult lives and we won't be moving for a long time, God willing!
