A glorious trip to Indianapolis resulted in a very inglorious defeat in the Big Ten Championship Game to Michigan State. That said, we had a great time with friends, and I love my Buckeyes no matter what. Beat Clemson!
Was scheduled to simply drive through Atlanta this year on my trip to Naples, Florida for Thanksgiving, but unfortunately, plans changed. My father was diagnosed with cancer this year, and we were forced to abort our trip in lieu of his radiation. (Update: Dad is finished with radiation, and appears in great form!). That said, decided it would be fun to head to Atlanta anyway (thank you freedom) and explore some of the dining and fun spots. The aquarium was awesome, and I discovered my new favorite coffee spot, Octane (gasp!). Had a great time. Be sure to get down to ATL if you get the chance!
I have two businesses that have some operation down in Texas, so I like to get down there quarterly, if not more frequently. This trip was especially fun. Weather was warm, business was hot, the Buckeyes won, we test drove some cars, my girlfriend came down to visit (another perk of her being an entrepreneur as well), and we ate some serious bbq and fried chicken. My good friend Chris Rhodes took us through downtown Ft. Worth, and it was really a pleasant surprise. The Water Gardens are especially beautiful, and we had some delicious food out on the town. All in all, was a great trip. Now off to Atlanta in 2 days!
