Off Betsy Goes, literally! Ready to hit the road this summer in my new Outback! I love adventures…and this blog is certainly one as well! I had the idea to begin something like this in late winter/early spring. One Sunday morning drinking coffee on my front porch I decided I could do this too! I began posting pictures on Instagram and now I’m ready to start this blog! Exciting!!
Southern. Style. Adventure.
Southern – Born and raised in Georgia. Can’t get more Southern than that!! I love the Georgia Bulldogs, Sweet Tea and Southern Manners. Now, I love a Georgia peach 🍑 but I must admit…. South Carolina makes some good ones too! I’ve been known to pull off the road to buy a fresh peach or two. I’ve got frozen peaches in my freezer year round… Nothing like a good peach cobbler. My Mama can bake a cake better than Paula Deen. My Daddy makes the best cornbread you’ll ever eat. Basically #healthy. Carbs = Clearly why I go to barre!
Style – I’ve basically been obsessed with style since I can remember. In high school I even kept a daily journal of what I wore so that I wouldn’t repeat an outfit. #crazy Some of my favorite memories include shopping… When I was 6 years old, my MiMi and Mama took me to NYC. We left early out of Atlanta and got into the city before anything was really open. I remember going on a buggy ride though Central Park but thinking “why aren’t we going to Bloomingdale’s?!” Ha! Little did I know that the stores weren’t open yet. My mind was on shopping, not sightseeing! I’m lucky to live close to Atlanta. There are several great malls, lots of outdoor shopping areas and tons of adorable boutiques!!
Adventure – GO might be my middle name. I am ALWAYS up for an adventure. Now, I had a little accident ten years ago that kinda changed my outlook on life. Not to say I didn’t love traveling before…but I wasn’t one to hike, kayak, bike, camp, etc. When the doctors told me I probably wouldn’t ever walk without a brace… I decided that I most certainly would! #stubborn I am very blessed to have this leg and I am very thankful for the adventures I have experienced with it! I feel like I’ve already been on an adventure this summer (insert: Bonnaroo) but I am more excited for what’s to come! Summer Seventeen is gonna be fun!
Off I Go….
