I’ve been to Atlanta, part 3

This post will conclude the Atlanta trip, and basically it’s a post that has information that I forgot to put in the other posts 🙂 If you’ve been following along, you already know how great this trip was. There was dancing. There was delicious food. There were meerkats. All of it was awesome.

Sunday morning we went to Louie Giglio’s church and it was such a memorable experience. Sometimes when you go to these big churches you might get lost in the lights and “show” of it all, and to be totally honest, I thought that might happen with us. But I was woefully mistaken. The worship was incredible. To be totally honest again, I thought, “OK, what I get from the sermon won’t… no, CAN’T… outshine the worship.” Then I was wrong again. Louie spoke about the spiral of sin and like one of my pastors here in Nashville says, I thought he must’ve been reading my journal. It was amazingly relevant to my life and something I needed to hear and be challenged by.


Something else I need to mention because I haven’t yet… the games we played! Sequence Niece challenged us to a game of Sequence Garage Sale Mania and once again (because we’ve played this together before), I lost. I was so close to winning but Dancing Niece got the luckiest ‘detour’ card and made it to her home spot before me.


The night we went out for Mexican food included a few games of pool. I’m the worst pool player but it was fun to play with both nieces.



The trip wrapped up with a final dance at the Atlanta Convention Center, the home base of all things dance this weekend. My niece’s team won first place in a few categories for their last performance, and it also got 2nd overall. It was a really well-choreographed dance and I’m so proud of her!

Thanks for following along with my first trip to Atlanta. Hope you enjoyed the read and if you have any Atlanta experiences to share, comment below. Till next time…
