Southern Plunge

Submitted by Christi

My metamophosis today isn’t something you see. However, there is definitely something different! I moved servers this weekend. It is something I have planned on doing and I finally took the plunge.

The new server is faster and better. So, I’m very happy about that. There are more things coming soon to A Southern Life that I am currently working on. I hope you stick around and see what happens.

Things that you don’t see are often very good things! Let’s see, there is the air that we breathe and good thoughts for those we love.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and that the wonderful week starts today!


Go check out Blue Monday at Smiling Sally’s and Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch for a great way to start your week!

    We’re on a Zuke kick at our house this summer. This sounds like even I can do it. Tomorrow.

    I’ve never made a squash parmesan, only eggplant. Sounds delicious. And what a great capture!

    I so enjoy your recipes, Christi, and those are some pretty blue pictures you are sharing with us, too. Sometimes I just want to go out and buy bubbles and blow them. I think adults stop doing things that delighted them as children, and I think we ought to spend time doing those delightful things again. Wishing you a week of blue skies!

    Happy Blue Monday…


    Sheila 🙂
