November 13, 2013 | By | Comments (0)

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Well, Jack needs to visit Southern Living and meet the staff who produce the best recipes, travel tips, design inspiration, and gardening secrets every month. See for yourself why we’re thankful to call SL home.

Bow Tie Wearer in Chief

Because this dapper gent, Lindsay Bierman, is our Editor-in-Chief.

Steel Magnolias

Because we get to do stuff like watch Steel Magnolias while sipping pink lemonade. It’s research, we swear!

Grump GardnerBecause for the past 30 years, we’ve been learning from one of the best gardeners in the land, Steve Bender—Grumpy by day, Crepe-Murder Avenger by night.

Antiques Road Show

Because this is just another day at the office for Homes Editor Jennifer Kopf. And by office, we mean the Antiques Road Show.

Making Groceries

Because, as they say in New Orleans, our Test Kitchen knows how to “make groceries.”

And speaking of the South’s Most Trusted Kitchen, we’re thankful they’re always recruiting taste testers.

Cocktail Cart

Cocktail Cart Friday

Because “Happy Hour” isn’t just a phrase thanks to our Friday Cocktail Cart. Cheers!

Sheryl Crow

Because we get to listen to (and meet!) some of the South’s best musicians. Here’s Travel and Features Editor Jennifer V. Cole with Sheryl Crow (above) and, Brett Eldredge and Holly Williams (below).

Steel City Pops

Because we love our hometown of Birmingham where local businesses, like Steel City Pops, share their sweet treats with SL.

OK, we’re done bragging (and will resume our selective memory on deadlines). What’s your favorite part of your job? Tell us below.
