Moving Day

Our bags are packed and we’re ready to go…

You might have noticed that there hasn’t been a whole lot of cooking in my home recently.  I’ve cooked on the Eastern Shore, in Richmond, in Alexandria, but not in our little Atlanta apartment.  That’s because our apartment looks like this:


Yup, we’re moving.  We only have two bowls, two spoons, and two glasses that haven’t yet been packed.  We initially moved to Atlanta for just one year, but we’ve decided to make Atlanta our permanent home and we couldn’t be more excited.

In the last few weeks, however, we’ve been dining out a lot more than normal since our kitchen and entire apartment are in a state of chaos.  Boxes are everywhere, we’ve been in and out of town, and well, it’s just been easier to go out to dinner.


Check out some of the meals I’ve enjoyed while my apartment is full of boxes:

Miller Union


Veggie Plate

Remnants of Feta Snack

Urban Pl8


Yeah! Burger


Taqueria del Sol


So today we move into our new home.  So long, one bedroom apartment.  You’ve been a great home for the last year but I must admit, I’m excited to have a little more space…a bigger kitchen, a dining room table that we don’t have to pull out from the wallwhen we have guests over, a fireplace, a fenced in backyard.

Our life has had a lot of transition in the last few years so I’m excited to be here, in our new space, cooking away, and enjoying our life in Atlanta.

As my grandmother says, “Home again, home again, quick as a jig.”

    Yayyy!! Enjoy moving in! I love unpacking and making a home for things. I mean, is there anything more gratifying than organizing?! Well, a successul home-cooked meal is right up there … See you soon!

    Can’t wait to hear about the first savory meal prepared, cooked, and enjoyed on Mantissa, B!
