I am currently a long way from the Dixie. I’m sitting in a hotel room in Barcelona, Spain, waiting for my husband to get back from his conference. This is my first time ever in Europe and I’m thrilled to be here. It’s Day 4 and I’m having a great time. I knew I would… Read More Worrying About Worrying
This week I was reminded not once but twice that I am not as young nor nimble as I used to be. The first incident was brief yet painful. We had a day of sleet and freezing rain last week here in Northern Virginia. Then the temperatures dropped into the 20’s overnight. School was canceled… Read More Being Southern Doesn’t Always Mean Having Grace
This is a 4-part Generation Gap post because we’ve all 3 been there at some point…living with family. Not the typical husband and small kids but mothers and in-laws and grown-kids, maybe a grand-kid or two. We will each share our experience and in the final post, share some advice for those families considering this… Read More GG: Living with Family
I am definitely a planning, resolution-making, goal-setting type of person. The week between Christmas and New Year’s Day is one of my favorite times of the year.

Welcome to Gen Gap where we discuss current issues from different generational perspectives. This week’s topic is Politics. It used to be considered impolite to discuss certain topics, politics being one of those. With the current political climate and the widespread use of social media, that seems to be changing. How do you feel about… Read More GG: Politics
I visited my grandmother, Lorena aka Nanny, last weekend and one of our projects was to go through some scrapbooking photos and memoribilia I found at my house. I wasn’t sure why I had this box that was clearly full of her very old photos. After getting together and finding scrapbooks we had already worked… Read More Remembering the Story
This started as a simple conversation between my mom and myself. She was exploring blogs, reading, writing, etc. I was lamenting on how I didn’t want personal stuff on my professional art blog but I couldn’t seem to keep another blog going on my own. The light bulb went off and we started brainstorming about… Read More What’s a Southern, Creative Blog?
