Monday Musings: Finding My Voice, Southern Accent and All, Y'all



I have been so wrapped up in completing a work deadline these past few months,my blog makeover (still working with the talented Kelly Christine on it), and the One Room Challenge; that I had forgotten to take time to figure out what journey I really wanted this blog to take. The past few weeks have felt like a rush to just get the ORC post up on time!

I have been trying to decide how to Revamp, Renovate, & Resuscitate this blog of mine. I had become SO sporadic in my posting; which is a shame because writing is one of my first loves. As I tried to figure out this process of redesigning and taking more time to write; I began thinking about all the different blogs that I love to follow and what makes them so wonderful.

It's truly amazing how we all chose to share such wonderful, different things on our blogs...recipes, home decor, party ideas, fashion, etc to even using it more as a personal scrapbook or journal. I realized it's not the choice of subject on these blogs that stands out but rather the personal spin/polish is what makes each one so engaging.

I started this blog off all cutesy pink and green with the cartoon created from past pictures of me and the pups; hiding behind the small amount of anonymity those provided.  So much has changed since then: I am older, married, a business owner, and have started to find the voice of this blog.

Yes, I am still very proud of my southern heritage, quite involved socially in my community, and love to entertain, cook, read, garden and design. I have decided all of that mixed with my love of history, story telling, adventure, and laughter is the path I am going to let the Southern Socialite take.

My point to this cathartic ramble is I hope you will join me on this journey of musings, recipes, things I find inspiring, and even the mishaps and misadventures of a Southern Socialite who embraces the past and looks forward to the future! I will definitely be injecting more of me into this blog.

To all my favorite bloggers out there, please keep posting! I love my regular doses of spiritual, fashion, decor, entertaining, and cooking inspiration!
