    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...

    I lived in South Carolina

    for a year. Loved the area and history. Totally hated being away from the city though, being from California. But I loved the surroundings. Nothing like a sunset and random lighting storms.

    Southern Girl At Heart?

    Well, all of my life I have lived in the city. A city that is always busy, where everything is opened late, people stay up at all times of the night. I live in "The City That Never Sleeps" known as New York City. I will say that I love it here, but I just don't fit in. I love the...

    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...

    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.

    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 :)

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love the south.  I grew up a yankee and have really appreciated the kindness and generosity that the south has extended to me since I've moved down here.  I hope to learn to be more hospitable someday.

    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.
