Sorry that it’s been a little while! Things have been so busy.
This past weekend I went back to Jackson, TN for the first time since early summer. It was SO wonderful to see so many friends and to revisit a place that taught me so much! It was really hard to leave. Everyone had told me that there would be some kind of emotional letdown after college, but I hadn’t gotten there yet. Things at Shades had been so busy and had just taken off since I started in June that I guess I hadn’t really thought about it. But a good, soothing, tearful drive does wonders for the heart. Mrs. Vicki told me that maybe it’s because Jackson feels like home and Birmingham feels like the real world, and I think she’s right. I absolutely LOVE Birmingham and am so sure that this is where I’m supposed to be, but I spent a lot of time investing in a lot of people in Jackson. So, needless to say, I’m ready for all my friends to graduate so that I’m not quite so attached. BAH!
This weekend my parents and grandparents are coming to town! I’m so excited to see them and show my grandparents my Birmingham world! My dad and I are going to the biggest high school football game of the year. Hoover v. Vestavia. It’ll be an exciting evening for sure.
I can’t believe it’s October. I can’t believe that it was 90 degrees today. Thank you, Birmingham.
But I can believe that the Colts beat the Chiefs. Love you, Peyton.
And I’m loving an Alabama football fall, but I’m SO READY for Kansas basketball.
