Over the years, as the kids have grown and our needs have changed, we’ve acquired quite a bit of clothing that [...]

I’ve had a lot of people asking me why I don’t update daily anymore like I did in the first week or so after the accident. It’s simple : I want you to stay awake. Seriously, my life right now is pretty boring. I mean, I have two broke legs. I ain’t going anywhere. I [...]

Today’s journal entry may come across as harsh and blunt. I don’t mean to be harsh but I can’t excuse the bluntness of it. You know that inner drill sergeant I talk about from time to time? Well that’s the one who wrote this. So brace yourself, because my inner drill sergeant doesn’t dance around [...]
A field trip, a tv appearance, some awfully kind folks, and a whole lot of life still going on!

I strive to make SouthernPlate.com a place where people of all faiths and walks of life feel welcome, because you are. This is my virtual kitchen and I want any one of you to feel like you can just walk in, prop your feet up, and visit a spell. With that in mind, I’m letting [...]

Family Adventure Days began when my husband and I realized that while we were all together at home on the weekends, we weren’t actually tuning into each other as a family. With the temptations of video games, tv, and the internet at home, we decided to set aside one day each weekend (or sometimes a [...]
