With just 2 months left until the big move, JP and I figured we should find a place to live. We planned a long weekend down in Atlanta with LOTS of apartment viewings and some good meals sandwiched in between. We used a service called Promove that I can’t recommend enough. They lined up all of our viewings and mapped out the best route to get to each of them.
We stayed at a cute boutique hotel called The Artmore in Midtown.
It was in a great location and very affordable. I think the hotel’s biggest selling point was its courtyard. You can sit outside and enjoy a drink (or two) and at night they have the fire pit going.
Ok, back to the apartment. We looked at a total of 8 or 9 places. At this point I can’t even remember. There were several that impressed us, but in the end we wanted to be as close to Emory, where JP will be working, as possible so to avoid getting a second car.
It didn’t hurt that the winning apartment had this…
And this is just 1 of 3 pools in the complex. Now all apartment complex in Atlanta have pools, but this was by far the nicest and we’ll be living very close to it.
Some apartment highlights…
The neighborhood which doesn’t feel like an apartment complex at all!
Perfect for walking Remy 🙂
Balcony (perfect for that glider we’ve always wanted?)
What our view will look like
And some of the inside…
Nice and open so that I can cook and watch housewives at the same time 🙂
I’ll be sure to post more pictures once we make the place our own.
Some other highlights from the trip:
A long lost love
Some grits with hot sauce
Nighttime stroll through Atlanta
A new food shopping love
And of course making new friends!
We can’t wait to go back and make Atlanta home, but next time we plan on taking this girl with us.
