HIII GUYS!!!! I'm back!!

I promise I'm going to start doing more regular blog posts! Honestly, writing is not my strong suit but I love sharing my life and favorite things with you all, so it's definitely something I'm going to work on.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I Iove to eat. A lot. Not only do I love to eat, but once I find something I like, I stick to it. There are few things I love more than fine dining, and I'm lucky enough to have found my soulmate who also feels the same. 

I thought this requested topic would be a perfect place to start. Any of these restaurants are great for date night, special occasions, visiting Atlanta, or if you’re just looking for a good meal and a good time. So without further adieu, here are my current favorite restaurants in Buckhead AND what to order!
