You’ve probably heard of the theory of six degrees of separation. It’s this idea that everybody and everything is connected by six degrees or less. There even used to be a social media site around this back in the late 90s, early 2000s (it’s where I met my husband, actually). In the south, it’s a […]
We Southerners have a reputation for laziness in certain sectors. One of the most well-known is in how we deal with soft drinks. All soft drinks/pops/sodas (for you Yankees and midwesterners) are Coke. I actually come from a Coca-cola family (my great granddaddy owned a Coca-cola bottling plant in the Mississippi Delta forever ago), so it’s […]
I love this old abandoned store from Grits Photography. I keep wanting to take one and restore it for somebody in Wishful. It reminds me of what Taylor Grocery would be if there wasn’t so much love keeping it running. Also in the realm of southern, I’m getting back to my food blogging over at […]

I’m up to my eyeballs in the final stretch of my book, so I’m turning this over to three other writers who have captured the absolute effervescent joy I’m feeling over the Ole Miss and Mississippi State victories this past Saturday. 1. One big Saturday in Mississippi: Ole Miss upsets Alabama as Mississippi State […]
Because, OMG I need a laugh today, and I’m short on time…Episode 3!
I’m on the road today, so I leave you with more of my favorites from the Southern Women Channel on Youtube.
