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.
Because this dapper gent, Lindsay Bierman, is our Editor-in-Chief.
Because we get to do stuff like watch Steel Magnolias while sipping pink lemonade. It’s research, we swear!
Because 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.
Because this is just another day at the office for Homes Editor Jennifer Kopf. And by office, we mean the Antiques Road Show.
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.
Because “Happy Hour” isn’t just a phrase thanks to our Friday Cocktail Cart. Cheers!
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).
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.
