clear / confusion

I drove up to Athens and spent the day with T on Saturday - we had a wonderful time. We met for lunch at a little place called "Five Star Day Cafe" and talked about the houses the girls wanted to check out. T and her roommate plus 2 other girls have in mind that they want to get out of the dorms and into a house or apartment. They claim that the close living quarters and community bathroom is just too hard to bare another year. Well we'll see. We saw some adorable houses that were built especially with college students in mind - rows of brightly colored houses built in a craftsman style with sidewalks in front, and hammocks hanging on the porches. Who wouldn't want to trade a tiny dorm room for that? It's just not that easy. I think the girls got a little confused with all the choices and things they have to think about in order to make this move. It was a long day of looking, but it was a beautiful, warm day and we had fun. To end the day we went to dinner at a nice restaurant called "Casa Mia" - wrapped it all up with coffee and Tiramisu - yum!

Good luck, Taylor, on your house hunting, moving, etc. Leslye, I love that you embrace this and help and encourage. And. Give Taylor the wings she needs.
