This week on VIP Home, I am taking a break from chatting about my home to talk about a place that will always be home–sweet home Alabama. *Cue Lynyrd Skynyrd* Sweet home Alabama. Where the skies are so blue! Sweet Home Alabama. Lord, I’m coming home to you!… Sweet home Alabama! Where the skies are so blue! Sweet Home Alabama. Lord, I’m coming home to you! Here I come Alabama…
My grandmother and her family are from Alabama…my parents married in Alabama…I met the band members of Lynyrd Skynyrd as a kid while vacationing in Alabama–and I even had the great pleasure of living in The Magic City for a few years. No matter where I may roam, I will always see Alabama as home sweet home. So, when the Alabama Tourism Department reached out to me about their fabulous Alabama Road Trip giveaway–I just knew that I had to share it with y’all!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for the very first outfit of the VIP March Madness outfit series! Yay!
I have been living in Alabama for a little over a year, and I have yet to accomplish the things on my Birmingham Bucket List. The first thing on my BBL was Vulcan Park, which is one of Birmingham’s most popular tourist attractions. I have been to Vulcan for parties and events, but never as a tourist. Let me tell y’all–I truly enjoyed the experience of playing tourist in my own town and being at Vulcan. Oh, it is so gorgeous! Overlooking The Magic City from the tower at Vulcan is exciting, scary, and peaceful all at the same time! Now that I have visited Vulcan during the day…I am putting “Visit Vulcan at Night” on my BBL list because I so desperately want to overlook the Birmingham skyline when it is all lit up at night. :)
