One Week Down...

Yep, that's right.  It's been one whole week since we relocated to Georgia.  These are some things that I know...

1.  We are going to be okay.  It's in the little things, really.  Finally figuring out how the major roadways connect up (as I told you yesterday), meeting lots of sweet people at the church we've visited, seeing Andy happy with what he's doing, visiting some of the "sites" in Rome, finding that the Wal-Mart is less shady than the one I was accustomed to in Nashville, and much more.

2.  I like being close to Atlanta.  It's this sweet little nugget of knowledge I carry around with me each day.  And when I visit the local TJ Maxx to find that they have NO decent men's clothing options for Andy, I smile because I know I can talk my other half into taking me to the big city.  It doesn't have to be a major production complete with tanks full of gas and hotel stays, just a day trip to the city will do.  I've got him right where I want him, ladies.

3.  God has a plan.  We have recently discovered even more about Andy's path to working in Rome, and let's just say, it didn't just happen.  We have also discovered numerous connections at the church that we've visited that have helped to make us feel right at home.  I feel more certain all the time that we were meant to take this path.  Where it will lead, I am not quite sure.

4.  I'm thankful to hail from many places.  Andy and I have come into this "smaller" town with a broader perspective since we are coming from Nashville.  We are seeing the beauty in Rome, yet we also know beauty can be found in many other places.  I know my piece of the world is still so small, but I am thankful for the perspective that comes from living in different areas.  Collectively, this makes the fourth state lived in for the Bozemans (Andy--Alabama, me--Kentucky, both--Tennessee/Georgia).  We are just a pair of Southern Belles, are we not?

5.  Duncan is our constant friend and companion.  This move wouldn't be going nearly as well without him.  He's sort of that glue that holds us together.  He's our little buddy, and he is perfectly content just being with us where we are.  I believe he can make any place (even a little apartment) feel like home.

6.  We will ALWAYS have a special, warm, fuzzy spot in our hearts for Nashville.  It is where we met, fell in like and love, married, and became somewhat adult-like.  We made life-long friends, made two houses homes, and gained work experience we might not have gotten elsewhere.  We were within a couple of hours of both sides of our family, and we were in the heart of Predators country (did I mention there isn't hockey down here?!?).  The Music City will always serve as our home away from home.

Well, one week down.  Many more to go!!!
