Hi y’all! I’m Kate Spears, a self-proclaimed southern belle who grew up in a tiny town near Nashville, but I now call Knoxville home. I graduated from the University of Tennessee (Big Orange Country!) with an undergraduate degree in art history and a master’s in public relations & advertising. In 2009, I started my blog, Southern Belle Simple, with the simple hope of giving myself a creative outlet. I continue to be amazed each time it leads to a new opportunity and I cherish the relationships that are formed along the way.
I’m passionate about family history, time-honored traditions, and my southern heritage. My people hail from across the south, from the Lone Star state of Texas to the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. I grew up spending summers on my great-grandparents’s Tennessee farm where I developed a deep appreciation and admiration for people who could coax beautiful and delicious things out of a mound of dirt. I come from faithful men, devoted women, hard workers and wickedly good cooks.
When I get to Heaven, I hope it’s just like Ms. Beverly Bremer’s Atlanta Silver Shop, with all the lemonade I can drink.<< Find More Team Members
