What a great day! It was filled with several firsts and memorable times.
We are in Atlanta to see our Wake Forest Demon Deacons play Georgia Tech in their first ACC series this year. Normally we wouldn’t travel out of town so far to follow them, but yesterday there was no school, and I arranged to do some jewelry work while I was here so it worked out well. This allowed me to cover more than one first in a day: visiting Georgia Tech AND meeting up for coffee with a friend from college.
The baseball game was on the Georgia Tech campus. It was a gorgeous day for a ballgame. The campus is smack in the middle of Atlanta. Getting there was enough to require Prozac since I get super anxious in traffic and we weren’t quite sure where we were going. When we made it onto campus, we had to travel around before finding a parking deck for the game so we got a spontaneous tour of Greek Row on campus. Eventually we parked and made it into the baseball park. E had arrived hours earlier as he rode the team bus and went with the team.
He stays in the dugout during the games. He has a uniform and is really made to feel like one of the guys. Such an awesome program TEAMImpact is! Here is a picture of the guys during the National Anthem. Obviously, E is the shortest one with the gray jersey. The best part is the team won 12-7! Their record when E is at the game? 9-1!
After the game, I met up with a college friend of mine. I have not seen her since college (that was quite awhile ago for those wondering….). She brought a friend of hers and I shared about my jewelry business and line. Yay! Get to visit an old friend AND count it off on taxes. Awesome! I love that they loved the jewelry, but I loved visiting more. Nothing better than catching up with friends while enjoying some yummy gourmet coffee.
All in all, a fabulous day! This is exactly the way firsts were meant to be enjoyed!
