withering sunflowers… a for sure sign of summer’s end and it’s been a busy one, to say the least. this past summer we managed to moved to the Mid South for Jacob’s job, sold our beloved house in North Dakota and found out that we’d be adding another babe to our little family, which we are very excited about!

so here we are. living back in the south again and while I definitely didn’t miss the southern heat, it’s good to be back. we’ve been spending the summer u-pick farming, exploring all that memphis has to offer and eating tons and tons of popsicles. we found a great little popsicle shop here that has the best homemade popsicles ever! They even dip them in chocolate if you’d like and it’s so incredibly good.

Moving this go around hasn’t been the easiest. I miss my house and all the little things that were so near and dear to us up North, but like all of our moves, it’s working out. we are glad to closer to family and currently trying to figure out our living situation. we will be in here for at least three years with Jacob’s work contract so we’ve started house hunting again. I keep dreaming of a southern farmhouse, complete with chickens and maybe even a milking goat if I can twist Jacob’s arm… we shall see. 😉

Until then, we will be busy taking advantage of all the great things the south has to offer and I will be shoving my face full of fried bologna sandwiches and deep fried chocolate pies.

My sweet boy headed back to school this week and I can’t even believe it’s already the start of another school year! Seriously where does time go! Anyway I thought I would share some of his favorite back to school items. The book “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School” is a must! -xo
