Time Travel to Huntsville {plus winner revealed}

We're in Huntsville, Alabama, {my birthplace} this week.  Jonathan is working with a client over here while Brody and I enjoy a change in scenery. 

Though I was born here, my dad's job relocated us to Florida when I was around 18 months old.  We never came back to visit when I was a child, so I am not familiar with the city whatsoever.

The first time I came back to Huntsville, I came with Jonathan on a business trip because I wanted to see where I was from.  We were talking just last night and trying to remember when exactly we were last here.  We tried to remember Brody tagging along with us {thinking his age would give it away}, but we quickly realized he wasn't with us. We knew I was pregnant either {as I can remember doing cartwheels in front of my parents' old house one day}. 

So, I went searching through over 18,000 pictures on my computer to find the pictures we took when we were last here.  Turns out we were here in April 2008, over three year ago.  Time flies!

I was joking with Jonathan about the value of blogging; and how, if I had been blogging back then, we could have quickly looked up when we were last here and read about all that we had done. Since I didn't, we can't. 

However, I can provide a flashback with two pictures we took last time {so at least we will have this reference point next time we are here}.
The hospital I was born in.

The first house I lived in. {I was doing a cartwheel because it symbolized where I would have grown up playing if we had never moved}
Thanks for following me down memory lane.

Now it's time to reveal our winner from last week's giveaway. The winner was randomly chosen using www.random.org

Congratulations, Chenoa! I think the perfect winner was chosen this time as we celebrate preemies this month.  {I promise I did not rig it this way} Chenoa is a brand new Mommy to a sweet little miracle named Sophia.  Go check out her blog and their amazing story!

And I want to say a very special THANK YOU to Emily from Purple Possom for sponsoring this giveaway!  So many of you expressed how excited you were about the chance to win onesie stickers.  I'm sure Emily would love to hear all about how much you love her stuff to, so please take a moment to stop by her shop and let her know you came from Happily Mother After!

I'm headed there soon to purchase some gifts and maybe something for myself!

  1. I am not sure I know how to do a cartwheel anymore haha. Once I get my shoulders stronger (I have a shoulder injury)...I totally want to try this.

    I couldn't go 3 years without visiting home. It's been less than 6 months and I get watery eyed thinking about it haha
