Life, interrupted

It's not that I am overly busy, but I just am not sure how to capture everything that I have been doing lately. I really feel very blessed at the moment and I am really enjoying just breathing in that feeling.

My small group has been going really well and we have been working together to grow our relationship with God. I love being able to watch people I admire walk with their Savior!!! I feel so privileged to be a part of that group.

I have been able to have a lot of fun with friends lately too! This past weekend I was able to watch Lynnette do her thing on the tennis court... and win!! I got to meet some of the people she plays tennis with and chat over dinner, which was great. I am also watching Lucie (who I have watched a few times before and blogged about) so I was able to take her on walks around the block as well as a walk to Lenox Park with Erinleigh and her dog Bauer. I hadn't been to Lenox Park before so that was fun too... it was beautiful!!!

Recently I went with Victor and a group of old co-workers from Cbeyond to Luckie Lounge to chat and catch up. The sun has come out and warmed up Atlanta enough for me to be sitting on my roof again so I have been enjoying some relaxing time in the sun. I have also enjoyed a few dinners on my roof with friends. I love being able to share the view from up there with others!!

On a bigger note... I have been praying a lot about something else in my life... the possibility of settling down. In a condo. A few weeks ago Victor questioned me (for like the 100th time) about why I haven't purchased in Atlanta yet. Generally I have a lot of great answers why not. However this time I didn't. That got me thinking. I am feeling like Atlanta is home, I love my friends, my job can't be beat, and I am financially ready to have a place of my own. So, I have been working with Marcus, who is not only a great friend but a realtor, on house hunting. I have looked a lot online and have talked with a few places about acquiring a mortgage. Tonight we are supposed to be looking at a few places. Wish me luck and send a few prayers my way. This is just such a huge decision and I don't want to screw this up. Luckily it is a buyers market so I should have a few options once we have done some looking!!

Congratulations on the decision to get a place of your own, Kristie! Sounds like a good plan. So glad you have someone you know that is in the business to help you look, should be helpful in knowing what to look for.
My prayers will surely be with you.
