My parents’ new house in Macon, Georgia!

Last fall my parents moved from Savannah to Macon, Georgia. So when Koen and I went in September 2012 to visit, we stayed in a new city. As sad as I was that my parents moved, I discovered Macon is a beautiful city with musical history (Otis Redding, Little Richard, Allman Brothers).

Coronas with lime and Koen’s guacamole!

I am a bit late posting my vacation photos from September last year, but better late than never! Koen and I were in America for 3 weeks, but I think it’s easiest to post photos by state, beginning with North Carolina! Growing up, my family always vacationed in the mountains of North Carolina. This was Koen’s second time coming up with my family!
