This week I am really excited to share with you one of the coolest businesses I have encountered. When I was at Auburn, I was an Agriculture major and actually received a minor in Fruit and Vegetable production, so farms are my favorite businesses. While I was in school, one of my classes took a field trip to Hornsby Farms. After our visit, we decided to do a community service project where our class helped out at the farm. We split into groups and each group helped with different things such as delivery help, planting and picking weeds, and my group helped Beth make some jam! It was such a fun experience with such a wonderful family, I just had to reach out to them when I decided to do this blog segment. Enjoy!
Recently, for my Public Speaking class we were assigned to write an informative speech on something in regards to the state of Alabama. Well there are so many cool things about Alabama, and while I was researching I cam across all these really neat facts that I never knew about my great state. So I thought I would share with you as well! Enjoy!
Recently, I had the great opportunity to talk to the new country duo “October Rose”. The duo is made up of Derek Allan and Leanne Weiss who were previously solo artists before linking up to form the duo. I got to ask them a few questions and learn more about their music! I hope y’all enjoy as much as I did!
For this weeks Hometown Focus I linked up with some good friends of mine, The Frye family. They run a family farm titled Alleluia Acres and offer some really great product. I hope you enjoy learning more about them below!
Yes, that unfortunate looking child in the picture is me. I sacrificed my dignity for the sake of my blog.
I was scrolling through Facebook the other day and came across an article called “Honestly, Daddy-Daughter Dates Are Anything But Innocent”, and I had to read it because I thought, this can’t be a serious article. Unfortunately it was and the writer referred to daddy-daughter dates as “creepy” and even said they sounded like a “porno”. I shared with my friends and the response was equal to mine. I understand that everyone is different and am thankful that I live in a country where I can share my opinion, even if it opposes another. So thats exactly what I’m going to do.
For my second edition of Hometown Focus, I linked up with a local Birmingham business City Bee Company, a business that provides products such as skin care and local honey. I was able to get a little more information about the company, which you can read about below. Enjoy!
This week I had the honor of emailing back and forth with Bailey Callahan, an up and coming country music singer. I was amazed when I heard her voice that she was only 16 years old, so I had to get the story behind her music. Below you can read the interview I had with Bailey, I hope you enjoy her as much as I did!
I’m sure some of you are reading this out of pure curiosity, and that is exactly why I made the title so intriguing.
Welcome to Sweet Southern Sugar’s first installment of our newest blog series “Hometown Focus” which spotlights Alabama small businesses and people making an impact on the community.

You can read more about this business and even receive a special offer below. Enjoy!
They never told you that…
There will be nights where you cry yourself to sleep from missing home
Living in a dorm is not “fun” it is absolutely miserable
You won’t be able to make it to your 8am, so don’t even sign up
When you see that online class that looks so tempting, avoid it like the plague. You won’t pass.
