Leaving New Orleans
I'm sitting in a hotel in Birmingham, AL for Andy Penuel's wedding tomorrow night and am reflecting (and uploading pictures) of the past couple days. I drove to Charlotte Tuesday night and stayed with Joy for the night. She was gracious enough to drive me to the airport EARLY Wednesday morning to catch a flight to New Orleans. I was heading to New Orleans (along with mom, dad and Denise & Tom Akulis) to help Matt & Carly move to NC. When everyone finally got there Wednesday night, we spent the next couple of days moving furniture and boxes into a huge Penske truck. We were easily distracted by Grey, who is tiny and precious. He had a tough couple of days because his tummy hurt, but all of us thoroughly enjoyed being around him. Carly & Matt were excited to get packed up and moved out of their townhouse in New Orleans and we successfully finished everything up this morning. Matt & Carly went to closing (yay!) and the rest of us stayed back to finalize everything. I will miss our tie to NOLA but will love having Matt, Carly & Grey only a few hours away in Chapel Hill. I didn't get many pictures OTHER than Grey so enjoy.....I'll post on Andy's wedding when I get back to NC/SC.
