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 them. 

So, happy 10 years to this. 

From the newly married young woman who resided in Southern California and had a passion to write and spread joy to the 30 something happily married woman with four babies on her hip living out her dreams in Tennessee. 

What a journey it's been. 

Thanks for being here. 

Stay tuned!

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! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.
