March Madness

March is National Women’s History Month. Did you know that out of the 13 honorees in 2017 under the Theme of Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business, 5 of these women are from the southern states of North Carolina, Alabama, Virginia and Mississippi? Now these are some Strong Southern Women. When I think of March, I think of basketball – TheContinue reading “March Madness”

Why She Writes About Women – Welcome, Amy Rivers

So, to quote a former late night television personality, “How hot is it? It’s so hot, chickens are laying hardboiled eggs.” Yep, I don’t have to tell you that it’s hot down here in Georgia. Even my pup, Bella, won’t stay outside very long. She lies in the mulch where it’s cooler on her belly forContinue reading “Why She Writes About Women – Welcome, Amy Rivers”

A June Welcome to Melanie V. Logan

Hi y’all! I had a wonderful long weekend spending Friday through Tuesday at St. Simons Island, Georgia with my husband, Mike, and our mini-Australian Shepherd, Bella. After three relaxing days of sunshine, beach, and just being lazy, I spent Monday and Tuesday soaking up knowledge which flowed from the speakers at the Southeastern Writer’s Association Conference. AsContinue reading “A June Welcome to Melanie V. Logan”

A Previous Connection

Don’t you just love this time of year? Football, cool nights, warm days! Knowing that the holidays are right around the corner? So you plan. I’ve scheduled a few things—a day trip to the mountains, a long weekend on Sanibel Island in late fall, and the date for my large family’s Christmas gathering which willContinue reading “A Previous Connection”

C is for…

Meet Buzz, named him after the Georgia Tech Mascot. He’s my Russian Blue, but he was born in Atlanta so he’s a very southern feline. He’s my constant.  Do you have one of those? A constant (not necessarily a cat)? I’ve had pets throughout my crazy life. They have always been a part of me. Sara, theContinue reading “C is for…”

May Days

Whew! I’m back from the crazy for awhile. Deadlines have taken up my life for the past month and now I can breathe. All right, who turned on summer in the South already? 90 degrees. I think somehow, I missed spring and it’s only May. Oh well. It’s really okay because so much can beContinue reading “May Days”

Southern Snow

We love the snow here in the South, but we respect it even more. Maybe it’s because those of us, who are born and bred Southerners, didn’t grow up with much white stuff on the ground, so we revere it and cower to its authority. When we hear the weatherman on Channel 2 say the words,Continue reading “Southern Snow”

“Monday, Monday…can’t help that day..”

Here in Kennesaw, Georgia, it didn’t snow. We just have a miserable, cold, rainy Monday. On a gloomy day like today, my mom’s voice says to me “It’s a soup day…got to be a soup day.”  So I pleaded with my sweet husband, and guess what’s for dinner. You see, he’s a much better cookContinue reading ““Monday, Monday…can’t help that day..””
