This past weekend I helped my older brother move to Mississippi! Now as most of you know, the state of Mississippi is close to my heart as I graduated from Ole Miss. Oxford is a great little college town that’s perfectly Southern- housing the the best tailgate ever, The Grove, and in my opinion the best little local stores and restaurants on The Square. Due to this thought process, I hate to admit that I very rarely (actually never) ventured out of Oxford except to fly out of the airport in Jackson or Memphis just a number of times. Well this weekend changed that and I now regretting my lack of local travel throughout my four years at Ole Miss.
This weekend I discovered, Clinton, home of Mississippi College. Although we were so busy unpacking and organizing, we took Saturday afternoon to explore and I am so glad we did. Clinton reminded me of Oxford but on a smaller scale and it was ADORABLE! I wish I had taken more photos to truly capture how picturesque this place is but we were in a rush. In the short time we were there we had the opportunity to eat at 303 Jefferson. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a picky eater and this place was delicious. We also hit the local coffee shop, Cups, as well as the bakery, Meme’s Brick Street Bakery, because this girl always needs a sugar cookie. To say I had the best time is so true! Being from a large city, there is nothing I love more than experiencing small towns and all that they have to offer, especially when they are located in the South. Luckily for me, I now have a reason to go back and visit more places like this in Mississippi. And of course, plan a trip back to Oxford very soon!
