Tricia Oakes is a wanderlusting foodie Anglophile wife and mama who loves travel, tasting and experience. Here at Southern Spark you’ll find tips about meals and trips big and small. Sprinkles of stories about raising two Wee Frat Boys (ages five and two) in the burbs and being married to funniest man in the Carolinas are thrown in to taste (She may or may not steal his one-liners). All are delivered in a pot of Southern accent with a side of sassy mouth.
If Rick Steves and Anthony Bourdain had a daughter, raised her in Charlotte, educated her at the University of Georgia and the University of Texas at Austin, peppered it with a Junior Year abroad stint in England at the University of Reading, and then settled her down in Fort Mill, South Carolina, that daughter would be Tricia Oakes.
