“The only way that I could figure they could improve upon Coca-Cola, one of life’s most delightful elixirs, which studies prove will heal the sick and occasionally raise the dead, is to put bourbon in it.” - Lewis Grizzard -
Lewis Grizzard. He was one of the funniest Southern story tellers and authors I can name. Even his accent was funny to me. And I’m a Southerner! We’re easing into a big push at the office that will run the month of March to raise awareness about the importance of reading to kids. It has made me think back on the authors and books that were popular in my time. Now, my mother was a librarian, so I’m not saying she encouraged my sisters and me to read books about drinks you sneak into a college football game, but I do remember liking to read authors like Lewis Grizzard, Erma Bombeck and Fannie Flagg pretty early in my chapter book days. They made me laugh! These days, with all the pressures and deadlines, give me an author who can make me laugh and I’ll dance at your funeral. I’m glad I love to read and consider it one of the finer things I’ve learned from my mother. >>Now, that would be a funny post. All the things I’ve learned from my Southern mother. 😂 Yeah, there’s no way I’m writing that as long as she’s stalking me here. And you can bet your tatted doilies she is.<<

Wearing jewelry is one thing. Wearing jewelry with purpose is a whole different story. So much goes into the design of our jewelry but above all, I design every piece with purpose so that you can wear that piece with purpose: with fire in your soul and grace in your heart. 💗

Stop waiting on Friday! Just go!
Today was our last day at our favorite place before heading home. And no matter how often we come, and that’s a lot, I still get sad when it’s time to go. Disney encourages us all to believe in magic and fairytales! We are able to disconnect and just enjoy this magical time with Jackson. I asked Jackson what his favorite thing was this whole trip and he said “spending time with you guys” 😱😭 We can’t wait to come back!!! Until then, I’m going to tell you two of my favorite attractions! An old school one and a new one! I love Under the Sea and Flight of Passage! I still get goosebumps when Ariel sings “Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat... wouldn’t you say my collections complete!” (If you know the rest, let’s hear it) And I have never experienced anything like Flight of Passage. I still get giddy every time I ride it. Have you been to Disney!? If so, what’s your favorite ride? Would love to know!!
While in LA a few weeks ago we ate at a great restaurant called @thefrontyardla
which was located on the property of our fabulous hotel @thegarland
After having a meltdown over how amazing their chimichurri was I decided to come home and make my version of this great sauce made of fresh herbs! In this photo I used it atop a pan seared filet!! It’s delicious...a must try!
1 shallot finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
2 tbsp fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
1/2 tbsp fresh chopped oregano
Juice from 1/2 lime
Dash of crushed red pepper flakes
Add shallot, garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper to a medium mixing bowl. Stir and allow to sit about five minutes. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Add the remaining ingredients! Combine and enjoy on your choice of meat! #thenortonrecipe #inthekitchen #cookingshow #simpleyetelegant #delicious #southerncharm #southernhospitality #chimichurri #freshherbs #tryit #instagood #homecooking #easyanddelicious #recipe #recipes

Do you ever just bake? It's something I've loved to do for years. It's a peaceful time spent just mixing and waiting for the outcome. What's your favorite recipe?? 🍪
