Hello, I’m Lindsey!

I’m a Simple Southern Mama to two girls, Sophia and Moreaya, and one Aussiedoodle named Collie. I love to write about my favorite things, people, and foods – and everything in between! Thanks for stopping by!

One thing you should know about me is that I’m a Dollywood super fan! I’ve written so many articles about my favorite place on Earth that you can spend lots of time browsing – from the best Dollywood rides to important Dollywood hours and dates for 2021.
