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.
