An Atlantan Adieu | a few of my favorites

Updated: Jan 24, 2023

We moved! After ten incredible years in the beautiful city of Atlanta, Georgia, my husband and I squeezed our lives into a 10ft U-Haul and drove to a fourth floor walk up in New York City right before the New Year. The experience as a whole - signing the dotted line to moving in - took place in a matter of weeks. And while our goodbye to our beloved city felt brief, the impact it left on us will last a lifetime.


In an effort to bid Atlanta a proper adieu, here are a few of my favorite things I will continue to hold near and dear to my heart!
