Living a tasteful life

Thoughts on Thursday

I’m switching things up a bit today and sharing some things that have been on my mind. I’m often asked what made me want to start blogging. So, I thought I would share with you why I started this little blog and my thoughts behind it, so here goes. 

I’m not a professional food blogger who whips up gourmet cuisine. I’m also not a famous fashion blogger known for stylish posts and stunning photos. Nor am I a journalist, writing magazine-worthy columns. I’m just someone who enjoys sharing my love of food through simple recipes; fashion, through curated lists of pretty things I discover; décor, through inspiration and acquisitions; and last but not least, travels, whether it’s thousands of miles away or to a restaurant down the road. I’m someone who loves to learn about new things, and I hope that I can share something new with you. I started this blog because I enjoy sharing life’s simple pleasures. Experiencing life with those who matter most and documenting it for personal remembrance, while connecting with others in the blogging world, is my goal.  
I spent weeks trying to come up with a name for my blog and narrow down exactly what the one thing was that I wanted to focus on. I soon realized that every post wasn’t going to be just about food or just about fashion. I didn’t want to limit myself to just one topic, but instead set the stage for a wide array of interests. A Polished Palate was created to share my experiences on living a tasteful life, not just through food, but life in general. So thank you to my new readers for following along, and to those who have been there from the beginning. I look forward to continuing the journey!




  1. I'm glad you started! Even though we've never met, I'm sure we have a ton of friends in common--right?!-- so it's still fun to see what's going on in Charleston through your point of view. I adore your style and you always have great food choices. Keep on blogging, girl!

  2. Thank you for the sweet words! It's always nice to hear that someone out there is reading and enjoying the blog.I also enjoy keeping up with yours. And you're probably right, I'm sure we do have a lot of the same friends in common. If you ever make it back to Charleston, we will definitely have to meet in person!

    1. You do! Me! Christina and I went to high school together! :)
