just a girl from Arkansas

Good Morning!
 I had a wonderful weekend at home in Arkansas celebrating the marriage of my two friends, catching up with friends from college, and baby squeezing!
On Sunday, I took the scenic route home through Northeast Arkansas to enjoy the unique beauty of my home state. It seems that every time I cross the state line from Tennessee back into Arkansas my radio dial gets turned to country music, I talk a little slower, and enjoy taking the back way home. 
Yes, Arkansas might live up to some of the unfortunate stereotypes, but despite its imperfections, it is and always will be mine. 
Joy, Arkansas (this is the one of the 5 houses that along with a gas station make up the town)
The landscape was painted with yellows, reds, purples, and every color green paired against the ice blue sky
All rivers flow towards the mighty Mississippi
So much character
A little slower way of life
No matter where I go, a part of me will always be just a girl from Arkansas
P.S. stay tuned for an afternoon post about my weekend activities


  1. It's so nice to get a glimpse to rural America .It's also nice to appreciate nature and the slower pace of life.

  2. We are good representatives for the Natural State!
