Hello everyone! I'm Anna. My middle name is Frances named after my Nona which is how some of my dearest friends gave me the nickname Annie Frannie. I love all things antique, old recipes, my friends, family, and Jesus. I enjoy college football, completing house projects, watching our little one grow up and baking. I am a mom-taught, grandmother-taught, great-aunt taught baker. Join me in my journey as a wife, a new mom and a baker as I learn to balance all of life's aprons.

A deeper look into my story...
I was born in Greenville, Mississippi and grew up in Orlando, Florida. I have an older sister, an older brother, a twin brother and two wonderful parents. I am a wife to my amazing husband Joey and a mother to our precious angel Ava. I graduated from Saint Leo University with a degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching for 8 years.
In the fall of 2012 I met the love of my life at the Bushnell Fall Festival.

On September 6, 2013 Joey proposed to me with some cupcakes from our favorite cupcake truck. Of course I said YES! I made him take 967,856 silly selfies with me to capture the moment. In reality, I just didn't want the night to end.
On April 26, 2014 we got married at the Saint Leo Abbey and began our journey as Mr. and Mrs. Thompson.

Soon after we became FIRST time home buyers and have been enjoying our home ever since.
Our furry baby Georgia loves our new home. She is able to run in the yard and play. She is the biggest sweetheart and loves the water hose, chasing squirrels, and playing with lizards.
In December 2014 we found out that we were expecting!

On August 17, 2015 we welcomed our baby girl Ava Lynn Thompson into this world. She weighed 6 lbs and was 19 inches long. We are truly blessed!
