Guest Feature at Dixie Delights, a blog affair


Today, I am so happy to have been invited to write a guest feature over at Dixie Delights. Mrs. Dixie Delights herself is a great friend and is the reason I started my blog experience, Uptown Acorn on January 1. Amanda has taught me so much about blogging. She answers every question(no matter how trivial) with utter patience.

I will always cherish my Atlanta days of doing lunch with Amanda at Taqueria del Sol, dinner at JCT Kitchen, and our “Buckhead Betty” days of shopping til we dropped along with her sis, my BFF Melanie, at some of our favorite Atlanta haunts- Boxwoods, B.D. Jeffries, Love Street. I love Dixie Delights style and joy for life and family. She is a consummate entertainer. If any woman can “do it all”, Amanda can! And she does.




Hop on over to Dixie Delights to check out my guest feature: Click Here!

And while you are there be sure to take a “tour” around her great blog. Her own home posts are remarkable and inspiring. You also have to love a girl who has a love affair with the oyster, too!

Thanks again, Amanda. I am so flattered that you respect my talents so much to feature me on your wonderfully popular blog.

I miss you and hope to see you soon!

P.S. I also wish my BFF and Dixie Delights sister, Melanie, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Cheers!


Dixie Delights, y’all!
