People and places have always been fascinating to me. Specifically, I’m fascinated by how people define the word home, how they go about making new homes, and how they connect to others that live nearby and far away. In essence, I’m fascinated by how people burrow, which is to say that I’m interested in how people plant their feet in the ground and how they decide based on a combination of geography, time, sentiment, and need whether their home is one place, several places, or no place. As for me, I find it difficult to call just one place my home, so I summarize. I’ve burrowed South.

Hey there, I’m Stephanie, a writer and editor inspired by everyday beauty in everyday living. Welcome to Burrow South, where I blog about life with a southern slant.

Long story short, Burrow South is a lifestyle blog focused on the ways that everyday people (mostly southerners) make everyday life marvelous by how they live, what they make, and what they do.

That is, Burrow South is about southern homes, food, culture, and travel.

As for me, I’m a porch-loving romantic who dreams of hiking the Appalachian trail, publishing a novel, building a house, and seeing Everest. I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, but was raised in the suburbs of New Orleans. My family moved to Houston, Texas, when I was 10. I moved to Alabama for college and have spent the last seven years living in and around Tuscaloosa. If you were to ask me which of these places feels like home, I would say none of them. The place that feels like home is the tiny town of Jayess, Mississippi, where most of my family can be found living within about a 30-mile radius and where, as a kid, I spent most of my holidays, weekends, and summers.
