Johns Creek, GA

Johns Creek is where I grew up. My parents still live there, so Andre and I visit often; also, my siblings and friends are in neighboring cities, so it is nice having everyone nearby. When we moved to Jacksonville from Pittsburgh, it definitely cut down on our commute to see this set of our people, which was one of the many benefits of our move south. If you do get the opportunity to visit Johns Creek in the future, you are in for a treat. The city is just north of Atlanta, so there are plenty of things to do.
