Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog! I’m Kecia, the founder and editor of Southern Girl Ramblings. I am an Atlanta, Georgia based blogger, married with two boys (ages 5 and almost 2). I pick up freelance writing projects every now and then, but my passion is my blog.
I was an Early Childhood Education major, however I took a break from college to give birth to and raise our first son. I am undecided as to when I will be returning to school, but I think my major will be changing to Marketing or Social Media because I love both!
I have been blogging on one site or another since 2005…I started with LiveJournal and finally purchased my first domain name, IamKecia.com, in 2007. I switched to SouthernGirlRamblings.com in February 2009, and have been here ever since! I’ve also been on Twitter and Facebook since 2008, and have become fairly proficient in the ways of social media.

I am married to this wonderful, 35 year old guy on the right, James. He was also born and raised in Georgia, in a town 20 minutes away from me. Funny that our lives never crossed paths before, though I frequented his city often because it has outlet stores for shopping!
James has a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Information Systems. He now works as a Database Analyst for the local telephone company (thanks to my connections for getting him the job! 😛 ). When he is not at work, he likes to work in the yard, write computer programs, and play our Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii.
Our very active, smart, and stubborn 5 year old, Sawyer, was born on September 20, 2010. James and I had been trying for a child since we got married. After experiencing one miscarriage in early 2009, we were worried that we wouldn’t become parents.
However, in January 2010, we found out that we were pregnant a second time, and the result is this handsome kiddo! He is talked about quite a bit on my blog, and I love writing monthly letters to him.
Sawyer just started Pre-Kindergarten and loves anything Minion and Olaf from Frozen. He’s so talkative, and you never know what he’s going to say next! He loves everything dealing with art and music, his iPad, drawing, and sleepovers with Nana and Paw.
Our adorable baby, Dawson, was born on December 18, 2013. He was a bit of an “oops” baby – we had planned to begin trying for Sawyer a sibling in the summer of 2013, but I found out in April 2013 that I was expecting. He is the final family member and makes our home complete!
Dawson is our very active toddler that is quickly learning to talk, and loves a wide range of foods, unlike his big brother! He also loves books as well as educational toys that sing, play music, or light up. Elmo and Mickey Mouse are his favorites!
