The Perfect Weekend Getaway for History Buffs, Foodies and Art Lovers.

8:24:00 PM


The other day I began doing pirouettes and arabesques in our living room. Why? Well, I was trying to show my two year old that I was as cool as the cartoon ballerina on Doc McStuffins. Her natural reply was "Mommy, stop, you not a 'rina". Which, I sadly concede is true. BUT, there was a time, when I could claim with great pride to be the real thing. Before marriage, kids and the extra 40 pounds that live around my waist, I lived at the ballet studio. And I spent my summers traveling to various intensive programs. My favorite and most influential summer was spent at Ballet Magnificat, in Jackson, Mississippi. There, I made new friends, Honed my craft and strengthened my faith.

Funny, enough, the same day I was trying to impress my talents upon Holland I was invited to share this new docu-series with you, which is all about Jackson, a city with soul! And I couldn't pass up such an amazing coincidence.

Even though I've spent a decent amount of time in Jackson and still pass through on occasion with my family, I learned so many new things when watching these episodes. Whether you are nearby like me or far away, you should take a look at this series and see if Jackson sounds like the kind of place you would want to pass a weekend! Spoiler Alert: It will be.

I've embedded one video from the series which highlights the aspect of Jackson that calls to me most. The Arts!


But please, head HERE to see more about it's rich civil rights history, festivals and delicious food! And if you are ever in the area, send me a shout out so we can maybe meet up! (If you're lucky, I may even demonstrate some of my amazing dance moves...)

 XOXO
