So long, fair well... I am leaving this blog. I AM FREE! Just kidding. I am moving on over to It is my new spiffy blog, that I am still working on with the help of the computer fairies at Maiedae, but I am not going to post any more blog posts here on Young Roman, so I thought you might want to know where to find me. I know, sad. But my new blog is way better, trust me.

I love to love. It is one of the things that I enjoy doing, I love doing. I love to give to those that I love. I love to spend time with those that I love. One of my favorite people that I have fallen in love with is Emily. She is my soul sister in laughing about random insurance nightmares, crying over stupid people, caring for each other in faith. Emily has become my cheerleader, my comforter, and my light. I have enjoyed spending more and more time with this wonderful lady. I thought she deserved her very own post, to know just how special she is in my life. Thank you Emily, thank you for being you.

“May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.” ― Mother Teresa

When I have a really big high, like I did after this weekend of amazingness it normally doesn't come crashing down quite so fast! First the goodness that was this past weekend.

Some of my friends got together for a cook out this past Thursday night, and Mark was the main grill master!

 Then Sir Glenn took me on a surprise date to Shakespeare's Tavern on Friday night. It was so much fun! A for sure recommendation for a date night and/or for a guy to get out of the dog house, it worked for Glenn =)

Date day with Savannah! We got the opportunity to go to a craft festival of sorts on Saturday morning and then we had a great time exploring the Food Truck Park in Atlanta. You can read more about our adventures here and here.

On Sunday, Glenn came over and we made a yummy breakfast together followed by meeting up with friends by the river. I enjoyed talking with Jenny and watching our boys play soccer against kids half their age. They lost.

This morning I drank my morning coffee out of a mug that Rachel got, that I absolutely loved the saying! It is so true and little did I know that it would come in handy later in the day.

After the meltdown. I am now in Nashville and apparently so is the rest of the world. I could not find a hotel anywhere. I was stressed to the max of thinking that I might have to sleep in my car, because I did not want for my company to have to pay for a hotel room that cost $400 a night. That is the price of the only hotel that was vacant. Ridiculous. I finally settled on a hotel about 30 minutes outside of Nashville so a commute will be in order for the rest of the week. After pure panic induced by the thought of homelessness, I found a sushi restaurant within walking distance of my newly acquired hotel room. I knew it was meant to be, because the name of the restaurant was Sake.

Now it is time to begin my Skype date with my main man, and then hopefully get lots of sleep for the Tour De Colleges: Nashville Edition comes tomorrow!
