– a quick stop in Greenwood before heading to Nashville –

One week into my #TourdeSouth, and it feels really great to be home.  I spent the first few days in New Orleans, then onto my hometown of Columbus, MS and a quick stop in Greenwood, MS before heading to Nashville today for the weekend to catch up with my pregnant bestie who is due with her first baby in less than a month!  I can’t wait to see Kady preggers – she’s like a sister to me, so it’s so crazy for me to think she’s going to be a mom in just a few weeks! She’s going to be a natural, I know it – but I have to see this pregnant belly in person.

I’m hoping to do a whole recap post of my two weeks here at the end of the the trip, and my sweet parents have been such awesome troopers taking all my photos (and getting Christian off the hook, which he’s totally fine with). Both mom and dad have photographed blog posts and all my insta snaps of my #TourdeSouth, so thank God for them!

Because I’ve been in three different towns in Mississippi this week, I do feel the need to address all of the news about the controversial law that recently passed.  I absolutely do not support the Governor in this initiative to discriminate anyone for any reason.  I was not raised that way, and everyone that I’ve spoken to in Mississippi is honestly embarrassed and disappointed at this misrepresentation of so many of us from this state.  I think Ellen Degeneres said it perfectly – this is about human rights and I will always support equal rights for everyone.

I SO appreciate all of y’alls sweet comments and recommendations on my trip down South – like always, you guys are the nicest.  Don’t forget there are still some awesome sales going on if you’re in the shopping mood! Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. I feel the same way about the Governor’s decision on this. I feel that it misrepresents the majority of our state’s views on what hospitality is. It makes me sad to see us portrayed in this way. But, I have enjoyed your positive Mississippi posts this week! It has been refreshing!

  2. Bravo on your anti-discrimination stance :)))! In this day and age, it’s just shocking that we’re still dealing with this kind of judgmental holier-than-thou crap. Sigh. But, to be fair — just look at the progress we’ve made!

    And HOLY ALL – – excuse me, THAT BED…?!!?? Just stunning, truly. I’m dead over it. I have the same headboard as you (from Horchow) which I flippin’ adore to no end and it does kinda make me feel like a princess. But your Mom’s bed (yes, I left out Dad on purpose bc this is MOM’S) — now she is the absolute queen of queens sleeping there. What’s cool though is that even though it is big and a statement piece, it’s not over-the-top in an ostentatious way or anything. It’s just simply beautiful! Where on earth did she get that thing??? #KathleensMomCausesExtremeEnvy

    Like your Momma, I too am an abstract artist so I’m pretty sure I would dig her entire aesthetic at this point.

  3. I would love to see a post about how you packed! That is one of the things that stresses me out the most! (plus I have three kids to pack for- not sure how anyone pulls that off, with any style)
    And your parents bed, Oh my goodness! It looks like you lead a charmed life in MS! So glad you get to be back there for a visit. Xo, Tara

  4. I love seeing the lifestyle, style, architecture, and decor of living in the South! I’ve never been so this gives me such a great inside peek 🙂 Thanks for sharing! I’d also love to hear about how you pack for such a long trip with lots of obligations and different events!

    1. Aw that makes me so happy – thank you so much for sharing! You know what – that’s a great idea. Thank you for the suggestion!
