I Am a Southern Woman

    I am a southern young lady from the great state

    Tennessee Twilight: The Only Bloodsuckers 'Round These Parts Are The Skeeters

    I love this time of day. The sun ducking behind the ridge, it's final light casting everything in a golden glow. The front porch swing creaking out a familiar tune as I wait for the animals to make their way home from an afternoon of grazing in the field. The smell of honeysuckle...
