Fall Foliage! Ride the Rails

There is something holy about Appalachia.  On "the third day," God separated the land from the seas.  I imagine his fist crashing into the ground to create the Grand Canyon. But for our southern mountains, he pressed his thumbprint into hollows to push up the…

W-S Bloggers to Read ... Rebecca Subbiah of Chow and Chatter

The tag line of Rebecca Subbiah‘s Chow and Chatter is, travel, good food and nutrition. It is perfect.  I’m always learning a little tidbit from her either about how to grow vegetables, or traveling back to Scotland, or a savory recipe to try. I also am a huge fan of her twitter feed.  She always has something interesting to share.…

Southern Food in The City

One of the things I love most about my job is getting to go to different events across the city and meet new people. LA is a total melting pot, filled with some of the most fascinating people. Sometimes it can feel a little overwhelming though, because there are days it seems like a city of strangers. There's a special bond between southerners though, so any time I meet someone from the south there's an instant connection. Last night I met someone from North Carolina, and of course we had…

When home is on the coast

Within the category of "Southerners" is a sub-category of "Coastal Southerners." Not just the ones who have second homes on a sandy shore, but those who live full time within a hop-skip-and jump to the beach. 

Living in a coastal town year-round means you have to endure summer crowd explosions,…

#tscsummit Charleston takeaways

To kick off my sabbatical, I spent 4 days in the "Holy City" with some of my favorite people. It was just what I needed to get re-inspired and excited about writing and social media.  I hit the ground running (literally) to the American Theater on Wednesday morning to help set up with the rest of the summit team. As usual rain followed us to Charleston, but if you've ever attended a previous summit, you know that rain can't get us down!…

It's About Time

I find myself wishing for a number of things these days, but nothing as much as time. The time to reflect, to read a book. The time to truly do nothing at all. Living without that has become the norm.

Work steals most of my attention, but that’s not shocking. After work, there is another set of obligations: the social obligations and the little life necessities we all have. The little errands that won’t do themselves, the phone calls that need to be made to check in on loved ones many…

An Insider's Guide to Charleston

When I first heard about the inaugural Southern C Summit in Jekyll Island, GA last year, I was more than excited.  It seemed too perfect to get to spend two and a half days surrounded by and learning from creative Southerner's while attending cocktail…

South Mississippi's Best Kept Secret

It's the birthplace of artist, Walter Anderson.  It's sleepy and quiet and tucked quaintly on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  It's where I fell in love with my fiancé, and it has some of the most breathtaking views in the south.  It's the town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

I have fallen head over heels in love…

CINEMA: Photos from the set of Anchorman 2 on St. Simons Island

Did you ever get a chance to see the cast/crew of Anchorman 2 while they were filming on St. Simons Island last year?  Well, that silly ol' sequel officially cleared the $100 million dollar mark at the box office last weekend.  With a payout like that, let's revisit the excitement of Ron Burgundy sightings,…

Let's pig out.

Pork has long been a New Year's Day tradition. The custom is based on the idea that pigs symbolize progress. The animal pushes forward, rooting itself in the ground before moving. Roast suckling pig is served for New Year's in Cuba, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, and Austria—Austrians are also known to decorate the table with miniature pigs made of marzipan. Different pork dishes such as pig's feet are enjoyed in Sweden while Germans feast on roast pork and sausages. Pork is also consumed in…

Cheerwine and Bourbon: The Cocktail of Southerners

Southern Women are a breed all their own.

Alison Glock said it best:

“For better or worse, we are forever entangled in and infused by a miasma of mercy and cruelty, order and chaos, cornpone and cornball, a potent mix that leaves us wise, morbid, good-humored, God-fearing, outspoken and immutable.”

My friends and I are Southern Women and quite proud of it. This means when we get together there are things you should know that are going to happen:

1. We’re going to…
