~My Favorite Southern Things~

I'm not really sure why I was thinking about this today, maybe because of a conversation the other day with TH, but there are so many things I love about living in the South, and I'd like to elaborate.

1. Hospitality - There really isn't anything in the world like Southern hospitality. I love that I can be invited into people's homes and feel a part of the family. I love how kind people are to each other. I love that I can wave at my neighbor even if I haven't spoken to them in months. I love that people who you barely know or just met are willing to help you out if you need it.

2. History - The South has such a rich history of wealth, poverty, struggle, and triumph. There is something so unique about the identity of the South that is so captivating. So captivating, I'm thinking about getting my PhD in Southern Studies.

3. Music - I love everything about Southern Rock and Country music.

4. Accents - There is nothing quite like a Southern boy drawl. Not the redneck, I sound like an idiot accent, but the yes ma'am smooth talking, shy southern boy.

5. Literature - This one is the most fun I think. I love Southern Literature, basically because it's the history of the South in a million different stories about a million little towns. I just finished A Painted House by John Grisham, perfect example.

Basically, what I'm saying is, I could never imagine leaving the South, it's home and I love it. It's beautiful. It's unique. It's home.
