It's hard to believe that it's been 12 years. Some days it feels like it's been forever and other days where it feels like it happened yesterday. My grandmother was one of the biggest influences in my life and there is not a day that goes by where I don't miss her.
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 belle who could direct an army, loves her momma and will always be daddy's little girl.
