Fred's Meat & Bread

Atlanta, GA

Here's a blanket statement: I love a good burger. My favorite burger in Atlanta can be found at Holeman and Finch. Even when I'm trying to be good about avoiding dairy, and I order that burger without cheese, it still goes head to head with Thanksgiving dinner in the taste department, and that's saying a lot. The downside is that every other "craft burger" I try around town gets compared to H&F. I do it subconsciously, but J is quick to take one bite and say it's good, but it's no Holeman & Finch. Shake Shack? Not bad, but it's no Holeman & Finch. Grindhouse? That hit the spot, but it wasn't no Holeman & Finch. Bocado? Okay, it's up there... but it's still no Holeman & Finch.

It's a buzz killer.

It's basically like we're on the hunt to find a burger tastier than H&F. I've had a few places in my Yelp bookmarks for a while: Stockyard Burgers and Bones, The General Muir, and Fred's Meat and Bread.

I know this is vague.


Just sharing a few photos from Laura's birthday earlier this month. 

It was one of those days us ladies have, where you meet up with a bunch of wonderful girlfriends, most of whom you haven't seen in months (or years), and there just aren't enough hours in the day to properly catch up on each other's lives. We spent the afternoon at a wine tasting at Marietta Wine Market, and then we walked over to Taqueria Tsunami for an early dinner. I walked away with even more love and gratitude in my heart for all the gloriously beautiful women in my life.

The month of March was super stressful for me. There were changes in my professional life, changes in my personal life, changes regarding future plans, and probably more changes that I can't think of at the moment. The thing is, they're all good changes (don't worry - not pregnant). They've all seemed to happen at once, and they're still happening. I've hardly had time to stop and process. I know this is vague, but I'll find time to sit down and do a proper update in this space soon.

Soon come.
