3 Southern Girls: Blog Changes + New Beginnings

Happy happy happy Thursday ladies and gents!! Thursday's are so splendid because it means we're just that much closer to awesome sauce Friday's! Holla....

Welcome back, or if this is your first time joining in, welcome all around to 3 Southern Girls' Throwback Thursday Link-up. I'm not going to bore you with the deets right now (that's down below - be sure to link-up ya'll!) but I am going to jump into my #tbt bit for today.

This here bloggy is a dear love of mine. I can come here to share my thoughts and experiences with some unlikely friends that I never thought I would have the pleasure of meeting. Also, it has been a great way for my family and friends to be able to keep up with me and the happenings in my life. I'm a busy gal ya'll!

Over the past several days, I have felt like coming here was work now. Don't get me wrong, I know sometimes you have to work at something you enjoy. But it got to the point where I realized that I was now coming here to post something because I knew people were expecting it. Family, friends, blog friends were expecting to see a Southern Komfort Blog post on their Bloglovin feed each morning.

And that became such a daunting task to fulfill.

Thus, I decided to go back to my roots. Go back to why I started blogging. Like I said earlier, this blog is a place to come and share my life. With that being said, SoKo will still be around and I will still be checking in and posting things to this corner of the interwebs. Just not every single day of the week (with the exceptions of weekends - I stopped doing that a long time ago). I want to be able to enjoy coming here with all sorts of great things to tell you guys! I didn't want this blog to become mundane.

So, hang with me if ya'll still want to. Or don't. Either way, this blog was designed for me to share the beauty in this world with all you lovelies, so you can take it or leave it.

As far as the "New Beginnings" part of the title goes, I met the sweetest gal last night at dinner! A good friend of mine and Hunter's has been dating this gem of girl for awhile now. They did the long distance thing and she was finally able to move down here in July and start their lives here together as a couple. She is such a sweetheart, so bright in every way, and ya'll, she speaks sarcasm!! When Hunter and I left dinner last night, the first thing I said was, "I absolutely love her!!"

Jessie, if you're reading this, it was truly a pleasure meeting you and I can't wait to see where this friendship thang goes. Welcome to the south sister! And always remember, bless someone's heart.

Welcome back Y'all to another week with the 3 Southern Gals. 
 This Throwback Thursday Link Party has been such a blast.
We have met some amazing bloggers and read some incredible post.
  As always thank you for sharing and linking up with us!!  

So what  is so great about this link party?  Anyone can link up!!  You can share a post you wrote today that shares old pictures and/or stories...  But if you already have something else scheduled for today, or maybe you just found this link-up, no up an old blog post.  We just ask if you link up a previous blog posting, that it be older than a week old.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask one of us.

Cat @ Yes DEER :   Bloglovin / Twitter / Pinterest / Instagram / Facebook

Before you link up please read and make sure you are following the party guidelines :)

The Rules are Simple:

1.  Make sure you are following ALL 3 of the Southern Gals Blogs.

Cat   //  Kelly  //   Tela

2.  Link up your throwback blog post.  This includes a post where you share old pictures and/or stories.  OR you may also share a blog post that was posted prior to last week.  
In other words please do not link up to your blogs home page, a post you wrote this week that does not include something from the past.  

3.  Please no giveaways, shops, or other linkups. 
 (as these would also not fall into the throwback category)

4.  Share our party button and/or link back to our party.

5. Don't just link and run...check our some other TBT post.

6.  HAVE FUN!!!


  We want this to be a fun link up, so link up your post!!  Lets reminisce together.  All we ask if that if you link up, PLEASE follow ALL the rules.  We really do not want to delete links.  Honestly this is the last thing we want to do, but these link parities take a lot of our time an effort.  In return we just need for you to be respectful to our party and to others.  In the past linkups  we have had a few each week that have not followed all the rules.  Going forward we will have to delete any link that does not follow the party rules.  



  1. Great minds think alike :) Seems we are both getting back to our roots!! Love ya

  2. I have taken a few lil bloggy breaks and feel way better! I'll miss you every day though ):

  3. I've had the same feelings before, it's so easy to get lost in all the scheduled posts and chaos of keeping up with daily posts- I actually enjoy reading about people's daily lives since that's really why so many of us joined this world!

  4. I have pretty much had an entire summer off, and I feel so refreshed. I have missed you terribly though! Can't wait to keep reading about your lovely life sweets!!

  5. I've been feeling the same way, Kelly. That's why I've only been posting 3 days a week and I may post even less. Once it starts feeling like work when it should be something fun, we should back off. I just don't want to lose friendships so know that I'm still here! I'll try to remember and email ya just to say hi every now and then!

    By the way, I finally found my burlap squares and I'm not sure if they're colors you'd want. There were 8 (I think) dark brown ones and 8 (I think) sage green ones. I know those are unique colors but just if you want them, let me know.

    Have a great weekend, friend!!

  6. I have been feeling the same, Kel! It's definitely good to take breaks... or not... or to do whatever you feel like doing. We will support each other no matter what, that's just what we do. XO!

  7. Amen sister. We should never blog out of obligation, but instead because we truly have something to share because we want to. Once you realize you ARE doing it for those other reasons, it takes the fun and the purpose out. I have to remind myself that too! It's soo easy to get caught up and try and do more than you can, or what feels right. But you'll always have readers no matter what approach you take, so come when you want and make it funner and easier for yourself!
