Blogger Spotlight: The Hidden List

Kelley McCarter Copeland is passionate about being "in the know".  She shares her insight, inspiration and passion for finding all things exceptional on her blog, The Hidden List.

What inspired you to start THL?  Where do you find your hidden gems?

My friends always call me when they need a recommendation for a great restaurant or the perfect gift.  I started reading blogs a few years ago and thought that this would be a great way to share my ideas and journal all of the cool things I find.  I'm a voracious reader of blogs, magazines and inspirational books of all kinds.  I find new interesting things every day just by being aware of my surroundings and always being willing to dig a little deeper to find that special hidden treasure no one else cared about.

The Civil Wars - love them!
