Can we borrow one of those vintage cars for the ride?
With all the promotion and praise Ben and Erin Napier offer for their homebase of Laurel, Mississippi, the two deserve to be honorary tourism ambassadors. Now, Erin has whetted our appetite to visit the small town about 90 miles outside of Jackson even further.
The #ILiveInLaurel enthusiast took to instagram to share a captivating photo of the city illuminated by holiday lights. Her snapshot comes complete with cozy storefronts and the American flag waving proudly in the background. Fans expressed their pure glee with comments ranging from “Reminds me of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.' Magical!” to “...It's like something out of Gilmore Girls.” Stars Hollow references aside, the idyllic avenue sure looks like a spot where we wouldn’t mind camping out for a few hours.
Until we plan our visit, at least we’ve got more scenes of Laurel to look forward to in the couple’s HGTV series, “Home Town.” Season 2 kicks off on January 8th, 2018.
