Blogs I Love {Southern Women Edition}

This is an extremely busy week for me, between Luke’s party on Friday night and all the preparations for that, family of some kind here all day on Thursday, and trying in the midst of all of that to keep working on the house. 

Since I will probably be MIA for the next few days and the weekend since my family will be here, I thought I’d leave you with three of my most favorite blogs in the meantime. These women all happen to be Southern women who love Jesus, and their blogs are three of my absolute favorites.

You know how you’ll be perfectly content with your life and then you watch Paula Deen and you think, “That’s it, I’m just gonna stop worrying about food and start eating fried chicken and sour cream coffee cakes all day and start talking with a Southern drawl –look how happy she is!”  Okay, so maybe not everyone thinks like that, but these women will make even the most die-hard New England girl almost wish she was Southern!
So, here they are:

1.  Katie from Harrington House


I have read every blog post Katie ever wrote (possibly twice).  She blogs about her family and her house and occasional recipes.  I am definitely not Southern, and my house is anything but country style, but Katie makes you want to start saying “Honey” and “mercy” and start drinking sweet tea from old-fashioned glasses and stir it with real monogrammed silver spoons.  She is *fabulous* and has a great since of humor. 

2.  Edie from Life in Grace

I alluded to Edie before when I asked what color to paint my antique chair.  Edie is a Southern woman with a bit of funk. If Katie makes you want to buy antiques, Edie will make you want to paint everything in your house a vibrant color – like oh, I don’t know…turquoise!  She is a doctor-turned-homeschooling-mom and she has a great sense of style. 

3.  Kelly from Kelly’s Korner. 

I was apparently living under a rock for a while because I remember seeing those “Praying for Harper” buttons everywhere last year but I only started reading Kelly’s blog last fall.  When you read Kelly, you’ll want to wear dresses every day and buy fabulous jewelry and want an adorable little girl to put bows and monogrammed outfits on (what is it with those Southern women and monograms, anyway? ;).  Kelly has a great testimony for Jesus with all that the Lord took her through with their daughter.  She also has a food blog that I’ve gotten some great Southern recipes from!

Well, those are three of my favorite Southern bloggers!  Do you read any (or all) of the three?  Any to add to the favorites list? I feel slightly creepy to have posted their pictures on my blog but I just wanted to give you an idea of what I was talking about! (All pictures are from their respective blogs.)
