Earlier this year I met my good friends Cynthia and Anne-Murray in Oxford, Mississippi for the initiation of Anne-Murray's daughter, Mary Lant, into our sorority's chapter at the University of Mississippi. I had never visited the Ole Miss campus before and was completely ready to go back to college after spending a weekend there! The campus itself is beautiful, with gorgeous old buildings and lots of school spirit and tradition, and the town of Oxford is utterly charming, with an historic town square filled with darling shops and fabulous restaurants. We had a wonderful time and are plotting another weekend there soon!
Crossing the Mississippi River as I flew into Jackson. My friend Cynthia picked me up and the airport and we drove the 3 hours north to Oxford

Look at all of these wonderful pastries!

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
