|Reading in bed...wonder who he takes that after??|
"Duh, Mama," he replied, not looking up from the page. "We are living here, we're living here right now."
It was a reminder to be in the moment. And I loved it.
The trip was an example of my financial philosophy, 'Live simply, but live as though money is no object.' My friend Debby, my son Eric and I stayed at the Embassy Suites in Buckhead, an amazing hotel that I can't say enough good things about. The indoor pool and jacuzzi alone made it worth every penny.

|At Phoenix and Dragon the next day!|
The next day, we visited Phoenix and Dragon one last time before heading out. It was great to see my Atlanta friends again. I was excited to learn of the High Museum's coming exhibit of the works of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I've already made plans to return during my upcoming February long weekend and take in this exhibit.
|The kids amusing themselves while the moms shop...again!!|
But not today. Today, I live here and must focus on this time, this present, this now. Now I am buying a house. I'm not buying clothes for a year, which means when I want something new, I have to make it. I'm going vegetarian again, or rather attempting to, and I'm getting ready to train for my level II Reiki certification. I'm helping my son with homework and exploring the new interests he's developing. I'm planting hundreds of flowering bulbs donated by Jackson-Perkins to our community garden and launching a line of gratitude-based greeting cards, featuring my own art and quotes/poetry.
I'm enjoying living here, right now.... very very much.
