Southern Traditions that Y'all Should Know About

Southern Hummingbird Cake with Tupelo Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js Do you have a favorite cake? Funny enough, I associate a specific cake with each of my siblings. My sister, Tara, is without a doubt "Pineapple Upside Down Cake." It's one of her faves and I enjoy making them for her when I can. My twin bro, Ty, is Coconut Cake. We grew up…

A Twist on a Southern New Year’s Menu

//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.jsI am a girl who loves tradition. Love it. And apparently y'all do, too!

Atlanta Fall Bucket List

Belle & Beau on the Dixie Highway 90 Mile Yardsale

Nothing says "family time" like packing up the kids and dog and heading out to spend the entire day yard sale hopping. Oh, who am I kidding? I forced them to go, all of them. But since I put in almost 5 hours sitting at the ball field for soccer tryouts this week, I figured…

Summer Bucket List & Atlanta Summer Bucket List

We are gearing up for SUMMER! Fall is my favorite season, but summer is close to my heart. It's my time to spend with my kids -- making memories, reinforcing values, focusing on Christ-like behavior and studying His word, and family bonding time. We sat down the other night and made a list of the…
