Home sweet home

Well we made it to Alabama!!! (:

We had a good trip from Memphis to our new home. The waffles were my favorite!!! (;

Alabama is incredibly gorgeous!

A lot of things are different here. Jack In The Box is Jack's here. Carls Junior is Hardy's. Neighbors all talk to eachother. The traffic lights are on strings and the road signs are to the side (instead off of the traffic light). People are very polite. Left turns are all yielded instead of protected lights. Of course everyone has accents and bible verses on signs are common. College football is life and its important to pick a team.

We are enjoying it though. (: We are learning a lot about ourselves and our trust in the Lord as well.

New Alabama love. - Monica

You've already picked up the football allegiance, huh? I hope you make the right choice. ;)

I am so excited for you! You are going to LOVE Alabama. I mean, I've lived in this great state since I was four. I'm going to have to try and convince you to choose Auburn- it really is the better of the two. War Eagle!

In response to your questions on my blog, my instagram is leadam, I'll go follow you! Sunday Sparkle is kind of like Project Life of Project 52. I came up with it, but it's basically just pictures of the "sparkle" in my life! :)
