Deep South Moms Blog

Deep South Moms Blog, a sister site of Silicon Valley Moms is a collaborative group of women from the southern U.S., where the tea is sweet and the top-shelf margaritas are flowing strong; where moms mix old southern roots with new southern charm, never wear white after Labor Day, and know what "Bless her heart" really means. Y'all come back now, ya hear!

Our writers are working moms, stay at home moms (SAHM), city moms, suburban moms, rural moms--but, most of all, they are opinionated moms. Check out some of the classroom proposals based in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina that we have selected by clicking on them below.
