OSP South part One

When I arrived in Atlanta yesterday, it felt like I returned to an extended piece of home, or like walking into the back door of your best friend’s house. The familiar sights and sounds had a reassuring effect and I immediately craved sweet tea.

Liana picked me up and we made our way to her beautiful home. The air was frigid—like the way it feels when you reach into a portable cooler. Not cold enough to huff personal clouds, but frigid. All of a sudden I realized that my ‘thick’ winter coat was definitely categorized by my West Coast conception of autumn. I made a mental note that this will call for an emergency shopping trip.

When we arrived, Crystal greeted me with a warm hug and a huge smile. Typical Crystal. She’s from Conway, Arkansas and just about the sweetest thing I know…she ranks right on up there with Godiva truffles and chocolate pecan pie (oh, yes, I ate this slice of Heaven last night for dessert!). We spent the rest of the day talking shop and catching up on each other’s lives. I can’t describe how blessed I am to have theses two girls in my life!!

This morning the three of us made our way to Chattanooga, TN for OSPSouth and I’m loving every minute of it…or should I say, Awm luvin’ evry menit uv it! We’re on our way to dinner, so I’ll try to post more later.

By the way, I satisfied my craving for southern food last night at the Cracker Barrel. Sooooo good. And not in the healthy way. ;)

I so wish I could have come to OSP South. Take lots of photos so I can live vicariously through your blog.

I totally didn't eat Cracker Barrel when I was down south last week. Is it good? As good as BJ's and Pizookie? I don't think anything could be as good as that! Have fun! Wish I could be there!
