Yep- if you wannabe my lover- you gotta get with my friends!
Okay enough spice girls. I'm a wannabe southern belle.
This all started in High School when I read Gone with the Wind. I just LOVED Scarlett O'hara! However, as I've grew up as more of a Susan B Anthony.
I define myself as a. . . earthy independent strong midwestern girl. But in truth that's only half of it.
My Father is southern and while I was raised in the north I spent my summer in Tennessee. I was raised, in the words of Allen Jackson "raised on the ways and simple kindness of a small town southern man".
While watching the most recent season of the bachelor (I know I know- but my southern side claims I'm a hopeless romantic) I fell in love with Emily
Yes I know- she was sweet and cute and had a sob story. But also her manners were amazing. I loved how she used her sweet southern side to be powerful.
SO. . . I'm working on this. I want to let my southern side come out and I am ready to be a sweet southern belle.
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. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC.
We pick our battles and fight with the heart of a pit bull while still maintaining grace
and elegance. Our mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern bell who could direct an
army, loves her momma and will always be daddy's little girl.
