I've been a bit silent from the blog world this week, because I was in Mississippi for work. I got to Jackson early (early as in 1:00 a.m.) Monday morning. I had never been to Jackson before. I've read and seen The Help, so I was constantly thinking of that storyline as I stayed in downtown Jackson.
We started driving home on Thursday and stopped in downtown Vicksburg, MS. for shopping and lunch.
My grandmother was born in Mississippi, and her family is from Mississippi, but I've never spent much time in the state. There's a ton of history there and lots of landmarks to see. If you live a day's drive from either of these towns, I encourage you to take a day trip to see these historical places.
