I really enjoy your blog. I just wished I lived close enough to enjoy everything Decatur has to offer.

Thanks for kind words! If you want a really convincing excuse to come to Decatur, how about The Decatur Arts Festival on Memorial Day Weekend? All the activities are free and open to the public, so even with the high gas prices you can still have some good, cheap, artsy fun!
