Welcome, y’all! I’m Donya, the life behind A Southern Soul and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. This site is where I share recipes, some home & garden ideas, DIY projects and stories about my life and family. I’m a southern girl who learned to cook by watching my grandmother and aunts. From those incredibly talented women, I also learned how to make my home into a place where people feel special and loved.

Here’s a little bit about me ~

Years ago, while working in corporate America, I met, fell in love with and married an awesome boy from Indiana. We’ve had quite a life of ups and downs but always knew we’d rather go through it all together. We are tough like that. Along the way, God bless us with two sons. We love each other, are each others biggest advocates, push each other to be the best person they can be and are always, always there when one of us needs something.
