In almost 25 years of being married and raising a family I have made bread that looks, feels and (maybe) tastes like a rock. Baked thousands of chocolate chips cookies, at least a batch a week. Tried recipes that have failed to impress my family and lots of others that have been declared instant “keepers”. I have also planned family vacations on a shoe string budget. Caused tears of frustration during traveling and have even endured a vicious stomach bug that sent a couple of my children into projectile vomiting in our hotel room.
Through all the ups and downs, tears and laughter I have learned some tips to created simple meals to keep the family and Mama happy. I have discovered ways to plan family vacations with activities that can appeal to a broad age range and still stay in a budget. I have also discovered that while I enjoy celebrating Holidays and events, keeping the planning simple is best.
I started my blog, Creative Southern Home, as a way to connect with other moms who want to feed their family delicious meals that are simple to make. I also want to share some of the travel tips and destinations that I have found that are family and budget friendly.
