Georgia On My Mind

The Great State of Georgia

I love the State of Georgia and am so incredibly proud to call it my home. Georgia is a beacon of prosperity that has seen so much growth in the past decade that the U.S. Census bureau, in its most recent Census estimate, has allocated an additional Congressional seat to accommodate its growing population. In addition to being a hub of growth and innovation, Georgia is filled with such a lush history that volumes upon volumes of historic accounts and literary masterpieces have been crafted based upon the monumental events and people coming out of this state. ·I hope you will take the time to explore all that Georgia has to offer and I have included some resource below to help get you started in your journey.
