Winter is finally upon us here in Atlanta, stepped outside yesterday and for the first time ever wanted to immediately crawl back in to my burrow. Going from 70's one day to nearly 30's the next makes me want to sleep until spring. Oh and lets not forget that our dear friend Mercury is in Retrograde yet again. Yay! hahaha just kidding, Mercury hits me hard too. Back to Atlanta, oh Atlanta a city that is still growing and still trying to enter my heart. I have always had a love/hate relationship with this place. When I first moved into the city I was so hopeful, had so many intentions of what it held for me. Now moving back into the city I have those same feelings. Atlanta really has a lot to offer and really isn't that bad.
There are so many hidden spots and new places to discover, the old places you love just get better and now we show the world our city through movies. I can't lie it does bother me a little when I see shows and media portraying us as one side of the spectrum or the other. We are either super southern or all rap stars. When it couldn't be more than wrong. This city is one of mixture, of diversity and like any other city we are a mixing pot of amazing people. While there are exceptions to the rules we are all here together and it is what makes this city so eclectic.
We have areas to fit any one of your moods, from tea houses to music venues Atlanta is great for finding something to do and somewhere to go. I often find myself walking around and just looking around and looking up. Getting away from the phone, the computer and not looking down at the ground. I trip on flat surfaces so I am often looking at the sidewalk. One of the best walks I have ever took in Atlanta was when Snowpocalypse happened a few years ago. The city was absolutely beautiful and everyone was full of smiles. I even got to see people ice skating down Peachtree street. If you aren't from here it is one of the major streets here in the city. It was amazing to watch. Everything was covered in white, people were falling all over the place and laughs were spread throughout the city. I even got to sled in Piedmont park, on a boogie board. It was awesome.
So why am I writing this blog? It started with wanting to just write a blog about this city and it's potential. But I realized that there is so much more to Atlanta than one blog entry could hold, so that's when I came up with the idea to start Tuesdays in Atlanta. That way I can showcase something wonderful about our city each week. Something more than just writing about our crazy traffic. Cause hey you might as well love the city you are in right? Plus if I had to give this city a word I would say , potential. That's what Atlanta offers. Cheers and heres to Tuesdays in Atlanta.
