April has been blogging for a while about her adventures on the World Race, her job hunt in DFW and being married to me. I have blogged a little myself but since I write everyday at a newspaper I usually get tired of it quickly.
When we bought our house, we thought it would be fun to write about all the projects and maintenance a 100-year old house will require. It will hopefully serve as an entertaining, an update to our friends and family and maybe even a DIY guide for someone.
She’s been writing about the fun and also challenging sides of being a newlywed and her adventures with our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share. We get a box of veggies every-other week from our friends’ farm and they aren’t always vegetables people cook with regularly. She’ll post a fun recipe every week or so.
A little about who we are:
We’re both in our mid-twenties and live in Tupelo, MS, the birthplace of Elvis. We actually live a mile outside of Tupelo in Verona, MS where we just bought our new house.
I moved to Tupelo in February of 2012 and then April moved in November of 2012, after the wedding. She came here from the DFW area, and I came from Memphis.
April has multiple jobs, including being a barista & sandwich runner at Cafe 212, administrative assistant at our church, an essential oils consultant, and is starting up her own doula business. I work at the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, writing about crime and the justice system.
We are heavily involved at Origins, a small church in town for people who don’t like church. April is on staff part-time helping to keep everything organized and working with the children’s ministry. I slap the bass in the praise band.
Tupelo isn’t where either of us thought we would be, even after getting married, but we’ve plugged into such a great group of people and really love the community around us.
What do expect:
We meant to stick to a strict schedule to provide you with lots of reading material for the week, but have been falling short of even writing one post a week! Our posts are a combination of DIY, misadventures in home ownership, the little intricacies of marriage, and our favorite forms of media. We hope you enjoy what you read!
