Our Apartment

The apartment we have been living in during our "temporary" stay in Atlanta has been very nice. We love the view of the pool, proximity to the club house, and smaller size of the building it's in. When we found out that we are staying here on a more permanent basis we decided we wanted to try and rent out this same apartment.

We found out yesterday that Marriott will end their lease tomorrow so that we can rent it starting the first of October. We are very excited that we get to stay! Now we have to figure out when Marriott is coming to remove their furnishings and when ours will arrive.

I asked Damien what he is most excited to get back from storage and he said his PS3, TV, and sound system. Of course, all of the electronics! I am most excited to get my Kitchen Aid and all of my cooking/baking equipment! I have so many recipes I've been wanting to try!

Great News

We found out yesterday that we will be staying in Atlanta for about the next two years! Damien's boss liked the work Damien was doing so much that he called corporate and asked if they could leave us here on a more permanent basis. They said yes! Damien's company just signed a new contract with the state of Georgia for two more years worth of work so we should be here for somewhere around that!

We are very excited because we really like living here in Atlanta and have made quite a few friends. The weather has still been nice and hot, low 90's in the day and 70's in the evenings, so we can still go swimming! Now we will be looking for an apartment so the moving company can send us our stuff!
