What I have been up to:
Since baby Allison's birth, we have celebrated my son's 18th birthday.
And his graduation from high school (bittersweet)
A lovely well needed vacation to Hilton Head Island, S.C.
If you have never visited Hilton Head, I highly recommend it
There are so many fun activities
as well as miles of wide open beaches to walk and lots of natural treasures to discover.
But the most important thing I have been doing during my break from blogging has been focusing on my health, after all I am a nurse, wife and a mother and my health must be a priority.
You see this person in the black top, well that's me last fall at The Southern Blogger's Conference.

Since that time I have made multiple lifestyle changes, diet and exercise have become a intricate part of my everyday routine, and I'm happy to say those lifestyle changes have resulted in a 40 lb. weight reduction and a new outlook on life.
I have been a bit hesitate to blog about my lifestyle changes, but after much thought I think it's time to share, and
I hope that I can offer encouragement to others who wish to make such changes as well as share my recipes and workout routines here on A Southern Blossom.
Thank you all for continuing to follow me and visit my page during my absence and I look forward to sharing with you my new lifestyle changes and of course we will always decorate.
