Finally Settling In “Two months before we knew we were in a pandemic, I left Atlanta and moved to Athens, Georgia. The business I run with my two partners, The Bitter Southerner, also relocated to Athens. Here, I've bought my first home in many years. It's in the historic Cobbham neighborhood, a stone house that (we think) is 113 years old. It's so nice to put down strong roots in a town filled with so much music, art, and creativity. I filled my collection with crafts I'd like to live with and in. To be surrounded, in this new (old) home of mine, by the artists of the American Craft Council? Well that would make my ‘settling in’ pretty perfect.”
