I’ve been so busy going places and making new memories that I haven’t blogged about our UR reunion in Atlanta that took place back in February! My friends from college are some of the most genuine, adventurous, loyal, caring, curious, and intellectually stimulating people I know. We come from all different backgrounds – some are from the North, some from the South and we are in a variety of professions – lawyers, doctors, dentists, professors, managers. Our differences unite us and our bond is strong.
Since 2005 (year after we graduated), we have been having an annual reunion. We are geographically spread out around the United States, so we rotate houses each year. There are about 10 or 12 of us that try to make reunion. This year, only 4 of us could make it as it is getting increasingly more difficult with pregnancies and babies. Eventually, though, I hope and imagine us having family reunions with all of our munchkins running around as if they were “cousins”, and Brad being "Uncle Brad" and spoiling our kids because he doesn’t want any of his own and can’t imagine why the rest of us would think becoming parents is a good idea (love you, B-rad)!! I guarantee you he will be the one that buys our children the toy that the kid thinks is the absolute greatest yet according to the parents, it is the most annoying. You know the ones I am talking about - Ones with the never-ending beeps and sounds. Yeah, I am in for it, one day. I just know it.
Our 2013 reunion was in Atlanta at John and Alyssa’s house. I’ll pretty much let the photos speak for themselves. We ate a lot, but I didn’t get many photos of the food. By the way, you know you are a blogger when you become crazy about taking photos of food. I mean you just might need to show the rest of the internet how delicious you meal is, right? So, no photos of my meals out of the house, but my favorite place we ate at was this adorable restaurant in Decatur called Sun in my Belly. I wanted to go every day. I asked if we could go every day. I got overruled. We couldn’t go every day because we had so much more to see and experience.
|Decatur, GA. We had fun doing a little shopping and eating at Sun in My Belly|
|No Sun in My Belly today. Homemade crepes instead!!|
|Hanging around in our jammies! Just like college -- sort of|
|We tasted a ton of Coke products. Inca Cola? GROSS!|
|Waiting for the Coke movie. The glasses were much more fun than the movie!|

What a fun trip with such dear friends! Sun in my belly, for sure.
