Chuck Obremski

Today was the annual Chuck Obremski golf tournament. For those of you who don't know, Chuck Obremski was the founding Pastor of Kindred Community Church. He was an incredible man of God who showed the love of Christ to others until the Lord took him home after fighting his battle with cancer. He taught me so much and still does through all of his sermons on Cd's. There is a website now up and running where you too will eventually be able to listen to his sermons. Go to for more info. After the tournament there was a nice dinner at the golf club which was great. Tim Salmon gave a great message and spoke about his friendship with Chuck and how he touched his life. I miss that man so much! Tonight there was also a raffle and silent auction that went on and.....I was a winner!!!!! I can't tell you how excited I was (and still am!!). I jumped out of my chair like no ones business and ran down screaming. I won a big and beautiful Dooney and Bourke purse. The best part was I only paid $20 in raffle tickets!! Woooo! Thank you Jesus! It was definitely time for a new purse. It is only a "thing" but I love it and am thankful for it! I will probably never be able to live my reaction down but I couldn't contain myself. Just a good thing we didn't win the flat panel, I probably would have broken my back all over from jumping up and down. Ok...that's it. Time to fill my new purse!

Sorry, I'm excited!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
