    Southern Hospitality!

    I grew up in Florida, which may be the most south you can get, but it's far from hospitable. Growing up there and spending my summers in North Carolina and West Virginia, it showed me there really were some super sweet and caring people out there. I moved more north as I got...

    Totally Humbled By It

    The crew of a certain band were nothing less than amazing to me in March. Drying me off from torrential winter downpours with the singer's towel (yum), feeding me and making me tea. Absolutely amazing Atlanta people....I'll never forget it.

    The Land of Dixie!

    I have never been treated so well, as I have in the South.  Hospitality must come natural to anyone below the Mason/Dixon line.  I aspire to be as hospitable as a good Southern woman, I should be so lucky.  If you have traveled that neck of the woods you know what...

    OH YES I DO

    BEING SOUTHERN MYSELF I CAN TRULY SAY THAT GENUINE SOUTHERN FOLK ARE GOOD HEARTED AND NATURED. WE ARE SIMPLE AND APPRECIATE THE LITTLE THINGS AND IT DOESN'T TAKE A WHOLE LOT TO MAKE US HAPPY. WE APPRECIATE OUR CHILDREN AND OUR FAMILIES, GOOD TIMES, BBQ'S AND HOUSE AND CARD...

    Today Show Did A Segment Chilvary Is Dead - Not So Down South

    Southern Style

    I had moved to PA for a short while as a teenager. I had never really left the south before then although I had moved around alot growing up. When I stayed in PA, noone ever once opened my door. Maybe that sounds like nothing... but it was definately a culture shock. I'm used to...

    Living In the South

    I live in North Carolina and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else! Its a place that complete strangers are united by their love for Dale Jr and the Tarheels. You feel like you're home no matter where you go in the South and I am so blessed to be here :)

    Quite

    I love it. Every time I leave I feel so weird without it. It's not that people from other places around the country aren't nice, in fact, most of the places I've been have been wonderful, but there's just nothing like southern hospitality.

    Butterflies In The South

    Driving just outside Galveston, I was pulled over for speeding. The Sheriff adjusted his belt and said, "sorry don't pay the fiddler lady. Does it? He slid his belt through the loops and told me to get up against the car and move my legs apart.

    I Love the old Southern Hospitality Days

    Southern Hospitality stops in the great state of North Carolina. Strangers down here do NOT smile, do NOT open the door for a lady or say how do Mam. The music vibrates their cars and some of the noise & words do NOT deserve to be called music. I miss the small town feeling...
