A Southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. She knows how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. She picks her battles and fights with the heart of a pit-bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Her mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern belle who could direct an army, loves her momma, and will always be daddy's little girl.

Silver Bells

You can already hear it, Christmas music is in the air. Boone has already received it's first snow, I have been to the Southern Christmas Show and tasted the apple cider, I drove through my neighborhood tonight and half of the houses already had their lights up! I am soooo excited for Winter and everything that it brings! The sights of perfectly wrapped presents and elegantly decorated trees, the smells of pine and cinnamon, the taste of warm homemade pies mom just pulled out of the oven, and the feeling of being close to the ones you love. This makes me so happy, and although it is frigid outside and some days it seems like there is no end to the blustery wind, you can always run inside and curl up under a blanket and grab a cup of hot chocolate and watch Christmas movies! Just thinking of it makes me happy! I can't wait to be back at home for a month and experience all of this! oh... and did I mention that it's not even December yet?! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!
