a lifestyle, motherhood, & running blog



Hi, I’m Chesson and I’m the southern thirty-something voice behind Magnolia and Main.

If you’re new to the blog, here’s what you need to know:
I love Clemson and everything to do with Clemson, but especially football.

I’ve run 42 races {36 5Ks & 2 8Ks & 1 10K & 3 half marathons} over the last 5 years but I’m #stillnotarunner. Maybe there's hope?

Kiawah is my 2nd home and you can find me there most non-football weekends.

But when it’s football season, you can find me at either Clemson or USC games {I know, I know, it doesn’t make a bit of sense} and this blog will revolve around all things football related.
This awesome guy proposed to me on August 29, 2015.

We were married eleven months later on July 30, 2016!

We purchased our first home together two and a half years ago, and are slowly making improvements around our 53 year old house. Most recently? We're adding a nursery because baby girl is on the way!
