Word of South

Emily Raffield

Emily is a St. Joseph’s Bay native who’s lived other places, but always managed to find her way back home. A lover of boats, raw oysters, and quiet mornings watching the sun brighten the day are some of the simplicities she loves about Old Florida life. Working with Melissa and Christina to create Saints of Old Florida has allowed her to experience her home in a deeper way and share what she’s learned in the pages of their beautiful book.
