Welcome to Magnolia & Main

Hey, is it just me, or does something look a little different around here today?

Welcome to Magnolia & Main!

Otherwise know as the much needed name change {& actual domain!} that I've been putting off for the last few months. To make a long story short, A Southern Twenty-Five was no longer cutting it around here. It was the perfect blog name {you know, until I turned twenty-six...} but it was time to move on.

So yay! New blog name!
But why Magnolia & Main?

... I just really like the word magnolia. You can blame Chip & JoJo for that as well as Hart of Dixie. It's a word that's stuck with me for awhile and reminds me of all things southern. So for me, it was an easy transition from using the word "southern" in my blog title to using the word "magnolia" instead.

This one has a little more behind it. If you had to ask me where my very favorite place in all of Columbia is, surprisingly, it isn't the zoo. Or River Rat Brewery. It's actually Main Street downtown. I love Main Street. One of my favorite stores {Uptown on Main} is located here and my favorite Saturday morning market {Soda City} takes up several blocks of this street. I've been known to take a lunch time stroll or two over here on weekdays {despite working a 10 min drive away} and I find any reason to come to this street. 

It wasn't always that way. Main Street several years ago was a whole bunch of nothing. It was kind of run down and not worth going to. I've loved watching it grow and watching new businesses and restaurants pop up along it. Uptown, Mass General, Bourbon, Cowboys, Persona, etc. It's such a cool area and I love what's being done to it. It's my little place in Columbia.

... and that's how I ended up with Magnolia & Main. Exciting, right?

You'll still find all of your favorite things here:
Clemson football
Wedding posts
Excessive pictures of alligators
Fireflies baseball
Southern road trips

There's just a new name to put it all together under. It's something that's been a long time coming and I am so glad to finally see it come to life.

Welcome to Magnolia & Main, hope y'all enjoy the new space as much as I do!

  13. sometimes we just need a rebrand. my old blog used to be "vodka and soda" but as i crept closer to 40 (aka old hag status), that just didn't suit me anymore because these days, i'd rather shut up and drink coffee in quiet.
