Dear Atlanta

This upcoming week will be extremely hectic as we finish packing our belongings and head out of the city we've been living in for the past three years, Atlanta and drive back to Miami. While we are excited for the change and all the new things to come it's always hard leaving family and friends. Goodbye's are never pleasant.

After living in "the South" for sometime I can truly say I am a sun and beach girl at heart, however this city definitely has its charm. In an effort to make the most of this last week I decided to make a list of some of the memories I'll always cherish from my time in this city, I'd like to think of it as my "thank you" card to Atlanta.

  • While living here I got married to my husband (even though our wedding was actually in Puerto Rico) we were living here in Atlanta. 
  • Experienced snow for the first time!
  • One day in the city I had an epiphany and realized what my true passion was and subsequently changed my major from Political Science to Journalism.
  • Graduated from college
  • Was able to land an amazing internship at one of the top broadcasting companies (later becoming my full-time job) where I have learned and trained next to some of the best and most talented individuals in the industry.
  • Being away from what I was used to allowed me to grow and mature in a way that I may not have otherwise.
  • Lastly, where I took the leap of faith and decided to start my newest project, this blog, which has opened my eyes and creativity in a way I will always be grateful for.
