summer in the south

“I’m thrilled to announce the birth of my sweet new grandbabies, Bobby and Claudia’s beautiful triplets, Olivia, Amelia, and Linton Deen. My family means the world to me, and we are abundantly blessed by these adorable additions. It has been a joy to see my youngest son and my daughter-in-law become parents, and I can’t wait to spoil my precious grandbabies!”—Paula SUMMERTIME IS HERE IN SAVANNAH, and I’m giddy with excitement. I love this time of year when my kitchen and garden are filled with fresh produce, my grandbabies are out of school and ready to come to Guinny’s, and potlucks and parties fill up my calendar.

a taste of summertime

MADE IN THE SOUTH ADAMS APPLE MERCANTILE Theresa Adams, owner of Adams Apple Mercantile in Columbia, South Carolina, recalls being 5 years old at her aunt’s farm and becoming fascinated by her family making apple butter in a copper kettle. Her love affair with the spread only grew throughout her childhood and into college when she started experimenting with her own homemade butter. After two decades of trial and error and fatefully marrying an Adams, Theresa started her business in 2014 and began selling her locally famous apple butter along with fruity jams, chowchow, and salad dressing.

salvation army holiday donation

This past holiday season, Paula and her family adopted several families through the Salvation Army of Savannah, Georgia, to help them provide gifts for their children. Each family sends a wish list of presents along with clothing sizes, and the Deens purchase the gifts and wrap them. Paula’s generous partners also participate by donating new items for parents such as small kitchen appliances, cookware sets, and bath and body care items. The week prior to Christmas, the Deens distributed the wrapped gifts to the parents so they could be given to the children from Santa. Paula and her family have participated in this holiday initiative for several years in a row. The Bag Lady Foundation, named after Paula’s first business, provides hope, inspiration, and support to women and families during their…
