I adore the magazine Southern Living. I am charmed by the gardens, decorator colors and recipes. Southern life is about gentility and hospitality. In fact, in the May 2012 issue, I found a list of rules to live by, if you are Southern. I will list three below that will serve the Southerner inside all of us.
A REAL SOUTHERN GIRL SHOULD OWN AN ICED-TEA PITCHER AND A DEVILED-EGG PLATE.
GOOD MANNERS WILL OFTEN TAKE YOU WHERE NEITHER MONEY NOR EDUCATION CAN.
IT’S NEVER TOO SOON TO WRITE A THANK YOU NOTE.
Yes, it’s good to be a Southern Girl.
Mmmmmm, deviled eggs…
If a girl has a pitcher of iced tea and a plate of deviled eggs, she’s always ready for a friend to stop by and say hi. Or welcome someone to the neighborhood. Or take a snack to someone who’s ailing. All in a Southern girl’s day. 🙂
