I’m sure I missed a ton of stuff, but no wonder the past 8 years have flown by. 
When DH and I were first married, we were dying to move out of this city. But, after looking at other options, we decided to stay, and I’m glad we did. It’s home for us now, and we’re happy to be bringing up our two boys here.

  1. We honeymooned there– I drew a circle around our wedding site on the map and it was a day's drive away and more affordable than New Orleans. Nice little city.


  2. nicoleandmaggie – I didn't know that! Very cool 🙂
