Happy New Year’s Day {and a reSEAlution}


I can hardly believe that today marks my ONE year blog-a-versary. One year ago today, I started my blog by introducing myself to you along with my likes of all things Southern. Check out my very first post: Ringing in the New Year with a new blog…


Throughout 2012, I shared many things with you. I hope you continue to follow my journey through great shops, restaurants, and bars. I will continue to share the many things of life that I hold dear. Through projects and decorating, 2013 will bring much more of the same stylish living through the eyes of this Southern boy.

In 2012, I shared with you the tour of our first floor of our home. Review the tour: Perrier Home Tour {Downstairs} page


This year, I’ll share with you the upstairs and any tweaks I’ve made downstairs.


I kept my New Year’s Resolution of bringing you one blog post per day in 2012. In 2013, I do not promise one blog post a day, but I will bring you posts when I deem them appropriate. I love doing this, and I hope it shows.


My New Year’s Re-SEA-lution for 2013 is to visit my favorite locales: Grand Isle, Bay St. Louis, Fairhope, Orange Beach, Destin, Tybee Island, Amelia Island, Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island. I am always in need of some good ole “vitamin SEA”.

Did you make a New Year’s resolution?



Happy New Year, y’all!


  1. Happy New Years! Looking forward to reading more in 2013 :) You should add Nantucket to your vitamin sea locales!! Tybee is on my list....

  2. Happy New Year to you and Jeff! I can't imagine not having my morning coffee without reading a daily blog from you, but I certainly understand the time it takes not only to do one daily but also to do it right and make it interesting. So, I'll take what I can get in 2013. :) P.S. I hope you make it out to the beach soon for some "vitamin sea"! Have a great day! <3
