  Destin, FL, USA
Well, we're back from our vacation in sunny Florida. Lots of good eatin' including a couple of trips to the Cracker Barrel in Dothan, Alabama.

We had a great view from the condo to the beach below. The first one shows how humid it is down there. My lens fogged up the second I stepped out onto the balcony.

The condo was very cute. The owners decorated the kitchen with these multicolored fish. When I was reading the guestbook, I saw a note from a little girl who said she was leaving nemo with the other fish so he wouldn't be lonely. I hadn't seen him before, but after searching, I realized that he was still hanging out up there.

Hey, Austin!

  Anniversary, Magnolias and the old Jones Law Office comes down
Yesterday was fairly eventful with all of this stuff going on. I won't have internet access, so I won't be posting again until Memorial Day.

  This time last year...
Tomorrow, Austin and I will have been married for a year. The family got together today for my father-in-law's birthday (his actual birthday was Thursday) and Jake's birthday (he was born 25 years ago today - the 23rd). Anyway, it was funny to think that we were all together this day last year too for our rehearsal dinner. Sometimes it feels like it happened yesterday, but sometimes it feels like forever ago.

  Happy Birthday, Jake... Whirlyball!!
Whirlyball is a strange sport/game that we discovered through Matt. Austin and Jake really enjoyed it when they played it at Matt's bachelor party. Jake wanted to go back for his birthday. So that's what we did and we had a blast. Some of these pictures are really awful, but I liked a lot of the blurry ones because they are so funny and I thought some of them looked pretty cool. Anyway, enjoy...

  Alissa's wedding
Alissa was probably my best friend in elementary school. She had her very beautiful wedding in the UGA chapel on Saturday. The reception was at the Taylor-Grady house. I took these pictures when we were in Athens.


Well, one of my mom's best friends, Jeannie, lost her husband to cancer Saturday. It is so sad that he got it, but once he did, it was good for him to go quickly with as much dignity as possible. I'm very sorry for this loss. He was a very nice man.

  Goodnight Seattle
Well, the series finale of Frasier was probably one of the best last shows of a television series. It kept the integrity of the show intact right up until the very end. It was right up there with The Wonder Years and Sex and the City as one of my favorite finales. It was funny, smart and not overly sentimental. But it did bring a few tears. And it had a happy, but slightly ambiguous ending. But most importantly, it didn't overexplain anything, but left the viewer feeling hopeful. Very good.

  Graphic Design
Well, alumni night was last night. Ashley and I went. Jennifer McGann was there (actually that's not her name anymore since she got married last July). She's working at CNN and seems to really like it. I saw Meredith, Jason Crosby's girlfriend (she's so nice). He couldn't come though. She just graduated with a degree in scientific illustration and in graphic design- wow! Ashley was good. She is working at a new job that is like 2 minutes from her house. I think it is called Mouse design. She seems to like it so far. Jennifer Akridge (now Odom) was there and she seems to be doing well at Porter Design. Anyway, it was great chatting with everyone and good to see all of our teachers. We went to Maggiano's to eat and it was fantastic, so all in all, it was a fun evening.

  The Last One
Yes, I realize that in the grand scheme of things, the final episode of Friends is no big deal. But in my life it is kind of the end of an era. I watched it from the beginning. I even vaguely remember the advertisements they played before it started. One said "you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose" and I think that was all it said. Yes, silly, but it got my attention. I can't remember if I was in the 10th or 11th grade when it first came on, but it was on opposite My So-called Life which I didn't watch, but most of my friends did. It wasn't on for very long, though, and soon, almost everyone I knew was watching Friends.

I remember recording the episodes and bringing them into yearbook class on Fridays. We would skip going to lunch in the cafeteria, but stay in class, watch Friends and order pizza. My freshman year in college, I can remember watching it with Amanda and Corinne our dorm rooms. The next year, when we were living off campus, I think it was the season finale that was on at the same time a tornado was headed for Athens. Ashley was living in the dorm at the time and she remembers having to take cover in the lobby. One of the girls on the hall risked her life to run up to her dorm room to record Friends so they wouldn't miss it.

As Ross and Rachel struggled through their on again off again relationship and Monica and Chandler found each other, I grew up. And as I sat there watching the last episode, I couldn't help but feel like a huge part of my life was over. I know the next era will be fun and exciting too, but it is sad letting go of the past. The last scene in the empty apartment made me think of an empty dorm room, and the empty apartments that I had to leave, and the empty house in Loganville that was the first place Austin and I lived as a married couple.

I know change is good, and I am completely aware of the fact that I watch too much television. I just want to pay tribute to a show that has brought joy and laughter into my life.

  We've moved!!
Well, Jones Law Firm has officially relocated into the new office. I'm pretty much settled in my office upstairs too. I was there this morning, but the DSL isn't hooked up quite yet and I had to email an ad to someone, so I'm back home for the afternoon probably.
