Hi, I’m Holley. My family roots are in the deep South but I now call the California beach town of Santa Barbara home. My blog synthesizes the Southern traditions of hospitality and grace with California’s emphasis on local, seasonal food and the environment. I believe the two are intimately connected. Southern hospitality is really about honoring your family and friends, and the California lifestyle is all about honoring your body and your environment. Together they represent the ultimate approach to a life lived with love, integrity, and respect.
