Over the course of the week in Georgia, my mom and I had the chance to revisit some of my parents’ past. This was one of the real highlights of the trip.
Here’s my mom’s house when she was growing up (Athens, GA):
My dad’s when he was growing up (Athens, GA):
My mom’s house in college that she rented with some friends (Bishop, GA):
Here’s the river at Memorial Park my mom and her two friends used to hang out at:
And here’s one my mom’s aforementioned friends (Deirdre) and one of the nicest, coolest people I met this week. In this picture, the three of us are at The Last Resort in downtown Athens. Despite the restaurant name, this was by far the best meal we had. Sorry for how dark the photo is.
After dinner we went to Deirdre’s house and met her husband and bunnies, and looked at all the artwork she’s created and collected.
As demonstrated by the above image, She might (might) be more obsessed with Bemelmans (anyone read Madeline as a child?) than me. I was very jealous. I need to get some artwork.
