If you read my blog, My Southern Heart, from May 2008 to August 2012, then you’re going to think this looks totally different. You’re right – it does. All the entries from my time in Oregon have been archived and I’ll have a book printed just for me. Five hundred pages full of reflections, photos, family, farm life, gardening, travels, the Pacific Northwest and so many delicious recipes. But it was time to put it all away and start My Southern Heart all over again. (The posts that you see in the pages and archives here are from My Southern Heart…the Stories.  These blog entries were compiled in a book and copies given to my family one Christmas.  The personal stories are here if you’d like to read them…and for my safekeeping.)


There are so many things I want to write about.  A lot of the categories on the righthand sidebar.  I’ve been working on family history for two decades. I can’t think of any better place to chronicle those stories of the South than here. That’s just a start. Right now, I’m in the midst of laying out the website and working out the kinks, so it will be a work in progress for a bit.  I’ve purchased a few photos with a personal license (like the beautiful magnolia) and I plan on taking lots of photos with my new Canon EOS Rebel T6i. For the moment, it’s over my head but I will learn.  One is never too old to learn.

I appreciate those of you who noticed I’m writing again and reached out to me. Thank you.  If you’re following along, welcome!
