Hi Everyone!
I'm so excited to find this team!!
I just moved to Mississippi 5 months ago with my fiance Michael. Our wedding is in 4 weeks in Orlando Florida, where I was born, raised and have lived my entire life. Getting settled here has been a huge adjustment for me since all of both our families live in Florida.
I fell into opening a shop Etsy when I discovered how much I love weddings while planning my own.
I love making handmade floral and many other creative things.
I just wanted to say hello and meet some fellow Mississippians!

Welcome to Mississippi. If you don't like the weather, wait a will change that quickly on you. I have visited Orlando before....very nice place. You aren't that far from me....awesome! I work at the Michael's on Ridgewood Court on the weekends...teach classes there. I think you will love it here. There isn't any thing super exciting to go and do here, but there is still tons of fun to be had. Make sure you check out the MS Children's Museum. Not just for kids. :)

Thank you for the welcome!
I actually really love Mississippi. It's nice to be somewhere other then tourist central. :)
I live in Michael's! I've probably seen you since I'm in there at least 2x a week.
I will definitely check out the museum sounds fun!.. :)

Welcome to Mississippi. I moved here 8 years ago with my husband and our kids from Boston about a culture shock! Adjusting has been easy, cost of living is much cheaper and I can't think of a better place to raise my family! I love it here. We get alot of tourists here. I live in Tupelo, better known as Elvis' birthplace. I live not even 5 minutes from downtown Tupelo, but its so nice. I love it!

Thanks for the response Meredith! I am shocked by the cheaper cost of living here! But it has been a nice adjustment I'm looking forward to the future! :)

Welcome to Mississippi! The Ridgeland/Madison area is a great place to live...lots of fun things to do. You have to try Ely’s Restaurant - expensive, but delicious!

Good luck on your Etsy store!
