Welcome to South Jersey History and Adventures! Yummy has been featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer, SJ magazine, and local newspapers and publications since she started this blog journey. She’s also published two books. I also do portrait photography here in South Jersey at http://www.shootingstarsouthjersey.com. This blog got me into photography and it has now turned into a thriving business!
This website was started about 6 years ago.. as a way for my son and I to get out and see what is in our backyard. It is a historical and fun journey of our great Garden State. I am in love with it! I’m dedicated to bringing you our beauty and history to the world!
I’m married and have a six year old son and a delightful and spunky three year old daughter, who are the self-proclaimed “youngest” South Jersey explorers out there. They go on almost every adventure with me and are my greatest joy in the world! We are out a few days a week checking out sites all over the area.
There is so much to learn and do here in New Jersey and the entire Delaware Valley region. It is incredible. I am attempting to do and see as much as I can and to write about my South Jersey journey. However, I honestly believe it will be impossible in my lifetime.
I take pride in doing my own research, pouring over many old books and documents, I take every photograph and write every article you see here (unless specified as a guest blogger.)
Both Frank H. Stewart and our modern-day historian pioneer, Jerseyman, are historical Gods of South Jersey in my book. Their legacy can never ever be replaced, however, I hope I can bring something to the table that you may enjoy.
Enjoy “Yummygal’s” South Jersey Exploring my friends! -YG
