My family definitely needed some Mississippi/Tennessee time this summer. We just returned home and it was a fantastic visit. The theme for this visit? My husband and kids are simply too good to be true and I am freakin' unbelievably lucky to have been blessed with this family. Theme #2? I love my life.
Here are some pictures, in no particular order:
|Did I mention that we drove? Here the kids are in Arizona.|
|We stayed with my Daddy. Love the area around his house.|
|His house is in Hernando. I love Hernando's Courthouse Square.|
|We often had ducks as sentries.|
|You can never have enough kudzu.|
|When visiting with my daddy, there is always some of this...|
|And some of this...|
|And a lot of this. (This is a hole in the wall place near my dad's house.)|
|Did I forget this? Dale's is the yummiest (other than home-cooked.)|
These greens and purple-hull peas were a little piece of heaven.
|But my favorite things are the views...|
|We even went by my elementary school: Southaven Elementary School. |
I did go to Hope Sullivan for a year and a half, but this was the school that I remembered most.
|Old church/schoolhouse out on Malone Rd.|
|Look at these adorable "churn."|
|Visiting my mom's gravesite.|
|We had to visit Graceland, of course.|
|So many choices for an Elvis fan. #TCB|
