A lot has happened since my last blog, to say the least...
1) We moved to Fairhope, AL...and love it! What an awesome community. After many long discussions, we decided the only reason NOT to move was the distance from family. However, still being within an afternoon's driving distance from everyone, the good outweighed the bad. Great schools, tons of family activities, beautiful, safe, small, and...THE BEACH!
2) We started new jobs.
3) We quit new jobs.
4) We started our own business. To elaborate...for quite a while I've had an entrepreneurial spirit, I just haven't been able to put my finger on what I wanted to do. The past year or so, it has been a restaurant. However, despite my business plans and recipe development, I still didn't have a clue about how to actually go about doing this. So, after talking with some good friends in Chattanooga who have been in the restaurant business for forever, and started their own place (a successful place) 2 years ago, we decided to open their 2nd location. So...in about a month, Todd and I will be opening and running Champy's Famous Fried Chicken in Daphne, AL. It is a Mississippi Delta-based, blues-listining, beer-drinking, laid back place to be...and the food is FANTASTIC. Made to order fried chicken, homemade hot tamales, homemade sides like fried green tomatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, and to top it all off, homemade key lime and Mississippi Mud pie. YUM! So, if you're headed to the beach this summer, stop in and see us (because we'll be too busy to come see you)!
Here are some recent pics of the kiddos.
