Southern Flourish


We returned from Blowing Rock, N.C. last evening. It was great spending time with family and navigating the gorgeous grounds of the Chetola Resort. Now we have come down from the mountain and must prepare for the final packing for our big move this weekend. I think I’m in a certain level of denial about this. So, I'll continue to keep my head in the sand and focus on all things pretty and Southern. Sound good? Okay, let's go!

Props to my aunt in Charleston who recently made me aware of a fabulous new publication, Southern Flourish. Their slogan is: Simple. Chic. Modern. Southern Style. Sounds like many of the lovely ladies in Blog Land, huh?

From what I’ve seen online, it’s a fun lifestyle and shelter mag. The all-digital publication is staffed by editors and writers who live across the South, so they bring a combination of views from the many great states below the Mason-Dixon Line. And several of the contributors are some of our favorite bloggers, such as Style Court and Young House Love.

So, in a day and age where we've seen many of our favorite publications fold (RIP Southern Accents and Gourmet), it's nice to see the arrival of a fresh, new read on the periodical landscape. Best of luck to Southern Flourish - I'll check back often.

I heard a rumor that Southern Accent may be making a return ... crossing my fingers.

Oh! My mother and her bridge club are going to Blowing Rock next week at one of the lady's summer home. Wouldn't I love to be a fly on the wall for that week?!?!?

I really need to go and visit N.C. Mostly I make it to NY and then somehow get stuck there, sometimes not even leaving Manhattan. I know, it's embarrassing...
