We’re spending the night at Ben’s parents’ house in north Mississippi tonight to go to the Ole Miss game tomorrow, and because they live in a parsonage a few hours south they mostly treat this as their vacation home. Or “the farm” or something. You get what I’m saying. The heat is out but no problem–there’s an honest to goodness wood burning fireplace in the living room that’s hopefully going to hold out for a few hours and keep us warm while we sleep. That smell is in my top 5 favorites in the world.
We also finally got to meet our new nephew Preston! Tom and Allison had him a few weeks ago and while he slept through our visit, I can tell he totally loved us.
