Lots of News

So much has happened since last blog.

1. Atlanta
Will and I went down to Atlanta for the weekend and the Red Sox games. My friend Harry treated us like royalty: he gave us tickets about 30 rows behind home plate, passes to the 755 club (private club on the field), and even MARTA tokens. Thank you SO much, Harry!

We stopped by the CNN Center, and were able to see some of the people I had wanted to--Dennis, Yuliya, Unni, David, Firf, Greg,and of course Harry. We were unfortunately too late to see Mark, Mark,, and a few others. Never visit on a Friday! However, we did head over to Turner Field to tailgate with Lance, Laura, and Corny, before meeting up with Steve and John. The game was awesome. The Sox looked great, our seats were amazing, and it was great to be back at Turner Field.

The next day we were up early to head to Vinings for the June Birthday Trip--each year Derek organizes a party bus to a ballgame, and it happened to be to the Sox game this year. We hung out with the gang: Fronja, Radio, Mary, Chris, Larry, Jamie, the Riegers, and some fun new folks. We spent a couple of innings with them at the chophouse before heading to our seats for the majority of the game. Too much fun. Then bus it back.

Unfortunately, the game proved a bit much and we were unable to meet up with Greg and Deirdre, as we fell asleep at about 8pm. Sunday morning we were up early to have lunch with Suzanne, which was just wonderful. We spent Sunday at the pool, with a brief lunch with Blair and Pamela before heading out to the Botanical Gardens and finally the airport. SUCH a great weekend. Thanks to Will and all my Atlanta friends for making it so special.

Since then, I have started my new job at Nimalex. I am LOVING it. The first day was overwhelming (as first days usually are), but the second day (yesterday) I settled right in and had such a productive day. It's fun to sit with Yoav, and he has been doing a great job of getting me up to speed on the company.

Yesterday, I was able to have lunch with Will, and ran into Alli on my way back to the office. Dudes, I'm loving this. I 'll write more on the job later.
