The Blogging While Brown Conference was really good and I am so glad I went.
The pre-conference and the in-between conference time was were the bulk of my fun happened! First up, hanging at Braincell, A Store for Dogs owned by the veritable Dr. Torrance Stephens. I had a great time checking all the stuff that exists for dogs...who knew! His son is as equally charming and intelligent and engaging. He has the entrepreneurial bug too! Yes the apple does not fall far from the tree!
My Blog Brother Tony OH! toured me all over Atlanta...even shared with me, where I am going to stay when I come back (smile). We dined at The Thumbs Up Diner...thanks Rich. OMG! I had catfish, scrambled eggs, potatoes, orange juice. I was in heaven! Heaven I say! I hung out at the High Museum checked out the Louvre Atlanta exhibit and the Civil Rights exhibit. WOW! It was exhausting, and delightful!
For night life, Sista GP, Mizrepresent and I all hung out at the Fox Sports Bar & Grill in Atlantic Station. Sista GP was bit concerned about Miz and I...we can throw back a few drinks...and we did. But we were all good...no worries! I met some nice Brothers who were sitting next to us hanging out on a Friday night. They were very nice and not from Atlanta but living here now with their wives and children...SMILE!
Atlanta has that affect on you..makes you want to come home to it. I actually know folks from Connecticut who have moved there. Now I understand.
Atlanta is indeed seductive and vibrant and southern.
Could I live there...YES! Will I move there...YES! YES! YES! All my "True Love Friends" have long since believed I should live in Atlanta...long before I even considered it. I mean I am a Yankee. But I think perhaps I am more southern than even I realized. My "True Love Friends" always thought I was more southern than Yankee...I just thought I was charming. I am charming...but that's rooted in being southern...LOL! Who knew!
I miss Atlanta. I miss Atlanta in a very startling and profound way.
Ok here are more photos! OOPs I lost my photos with Tony OH and BrainCell. I will find and post...aaargh!
