A Pretty Day in Tupelo

16 Apr

Quite an adventure was had this weekend in Tupelo.Church

It’s your classic Mississippi small town: churches line Church St., shops line Main St., and shop owners know you’re not from there as soon as your walk in the door.

My friend Amanda and I did a little shopping, where I found these beautiful tea towels for the new kitchen…

…and ducked into this cute dressing room at a lovely little boutique (and bought that green dress).

We also did a little exploring and ended up at Elvis Presley’s birthplace.

Quite a humble beginning for the man who would end up in the leopard printed world of Graceland.

After driving around to the “Azalea Festival” (there were more confusing signs for the “festival” than there were people in attendance) and seeing a deer mounted on the hood of a Chevy (I will forever regret not taking a photo), it was time to meet up with some friends and see an amazing concert.

We had a great day exploring Tupelo and an even better time at The Avett Brothers concert.

How was your weekend?

    Looks like you’ve had a great weekend. Mine was all about staying home and dating my bed. Cheers!

      I’ve never heard anyone say “dating my bed,” but it sound lovely!
