Welcome to Simply Southern Mom! We’re so glad you’re here! Here’s the lowdown on us:
I’m Pam, a small town Georgia blogger, who lives between Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Atlanta, Georgia. I relish life near the “big city.” I’m an imperfect of mom to a family that includes a daughter, her husband and baby, and a son. I am passionate about rescuing abused and abandoned animals and our menagerie keeps expanding, much to my husband’s chagrin. We have a small flock of sheep, a donkey, three rabbits and five (gasp!) cats. They are all very spoiled.
In my past life, I was an elementary school & special ed teacher. In my spare time, I like to read, cook, travel, work on DIY projects and find ways to live the good life on a budget. I’ve been known to drag my kids to tons of educational sites while on vacation, many of which they have actually enjoyed.
I am constantly attempting to develop new dessert recipes and adapt recipes so my Celiac and lactose intolerant daughter can eat them. I am also learning to adapt recipes for the baby who has a severe dairy allergy. There are lots of successes, but quite a few flops as well! I encourage my kids to join me in my cooking and am always thrilled when one of them offers to cook dinner. My guilty pleasure is Historical Romance novels.
I am a huge travel buff, honed when my husband worked out of town for weeks at a time. I would grab the kids and accompany him. I still love to travel and enjoy press events, fam trips and traveling with companies whenever the opportunity arises. Oh, and traveling with my family too, of course.
I’m Brittany, a twenty-something living near Chattanooga, TN, with my husband and our menagerie of pets. I am a first-time parent to an adorable little girl who was born this spring. Despite living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Celiac Disease, and Myasthenia Gravis, I love to travel. I’m always up for a good road trip, and my favorite part of travel is getting to try local (gluten-free) dishes that I’ve never had before. When I’m not blogging for Simply Southern Mom or on my personal blog, A Southern Celiac, you can find me curled up in my hammock with a good book and a cup of tea.
And of course, we can’t let you leave without a cute snapshot of the baby!
