Where I grew up, we made our own holiday decorations, cooked family recipes, and drank a lot of sweet tea. We said “yes ma’am” and “no sir,” and always referred to a group of people as “y’all.” We never missed the chance to crack a joke and we rarely took life seriously.
A social media addict and web-obsessed 20-something, I got my start in the blog world with a local, monthly news site before moving on to The 20 Somethings – one of Asheville’s leading culture, style, and personal interest blogs.
Leaves and Beards is my little corner of the Internet – celebrating all things home, decor, do it yourself, cooking, and drinking.
What’s your blog’s name about? I love leaves (I even have a tattoo of one) and I’m a fella with a beard. Makes sense, right?
