So, I started a blog...
But what you didn't know is this has been a dream of mine for a while and I'm finally taking the plunge.
This may surprise some of you, but I kept this dream private for a long time. My husband was even a little shocked when I told him that I've been curating this thing for over a year now. ('A WHOLE YEAR?' 'Yep, and I also want to learn the ukulele.' cue exasperated sigh, slight shaking of his head paired with a very cute grin.) He's my forever biggest fan & knows that me + idle time with no creative outlet = MELT DOWN! So he's on board with most of these crazy dreams.
Most of them...still working on the ukulele thing.
Why did I wait so long? I was approaching it like most do a college degree - you gotta pay the tuition, do all the research & do all the work, then you graduate...
But I was so WRONG! And I realized that if I waited to launch until I figured EVERYTHING out, I'd NEVER launch this thing. The stress and pressure to figure it all out disabled my ability to JUST GO FOR IT.
So, this is me letting go of my inhibitions and jumping in head-first.
This is me not allowing negative thoughts to crush my ambition.
This is me bursting forth & allowing myself to give it my all - finishing empty every day.
Southern Refinement is a reflection of my passions for easy personal style, unique home design, love for my home state, capturing snip-its of this roaming heart & (of course) all the yummy yummy foods. (Is there a time when food should not be a passion? I mean, girls gotta eat!)
Out of the many millions of blogs on the internet, I sincerely hope you find something here that resonates with you.
Thank you for being kind
