Happy Friday!!

These past few weeks of summer have FLOWN by...
between the moving, unpacking and getting settled into our new home, it's hard to believe that we are wrapping up the month of July.  I wanted to slow down for a minute to document the best parts of my week.

1. The first room we unpacked and set up first was our
I LOVE how it's coming together and
It was so nice to have some liveable space to hang out in. 

2. Our new neighbors have made us feel very welcome.
They've stopped by to introduce themselves, invite me to lunch, brought over treats and we found fresh flowers on our doorstep one morning.
Southern hospitality is alive and well in Mississippi!!

3. Our dining room is a work in progress but I'm head over heels for our new rug!!  I still need to style the bookshelves, put away boxes and find some curtains, but for now I'll focus on the great rug.

4. This picture makes me so happy.  After 6 days in our house, I'm beyond thrilled to report that the cats have come out of hiding and seem to be almost back to normal and Olive has figured out her routine.  Everyone seems happy and settled in our new home!!  Oh and the big windows with a view of our secret garden of a backyard don't hurt either.

5. We have been trying new, local restaurants in Jackson and we are really enjoying finding favorite spots.  This week's favorite was Two Sister's Kitchen.
I got to try friend okra, grits, collard greens, succotash and more!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
