Or should I say..."Lou-siana, Flaw-rida, Nawth Caroliiina, Sowth Caroliiina, and Vuhginia". What kind of Southerner would I be if I didn't pronounce them correctly?
Yesterday, I shared a few of my family's "Southern-isms". Today, let's take a walk down All Things Southern Avenue.

I've referenced it numerous times over the years. Everything from table place settings to proper invitation verbiage, it's a one stop etiquette shop. Much to my delight, it's still in print! Order yours from Amazon here. I promise, it will make you a better human being!

There's just something about a little boy in seersucker, don't you agree? Seersucker means Summer in the South. The thin, puckered cotton fabric makes the sweltering heat much more bearable. And you don't have to iron it...well, most people...we iron EVERYTHING in our family (sheets, cloth napkins, pillows). Irons flee at the sight of us!

In the Bible Belt, churches aren't just Sunday gathering places, they're architectural landmarks. Rarely can you drive through the countryside without spotting one of these charmers. Oh, to imagine the hundreds of years of worship in those pews. It makes my heart sing...can I get a Hallelujah?!
