    • For those of you who do not know me, I was raised in the South. South Carolina to be exact. So many people have the wrong impression of those of us from the South and at times I get very irritated to have to continually defend where I am from and try and educate those not from here.
      No offense to those of you who like the movie “GONE WITH THE WIND” but it is one of the worse movies due to the stereotypical characters in it. Some people, even in 2009, think all women in the South sound like Scarlett and that we treat people like they were portrayed in that movie.
      I was raised by my Grandmother whom we called “Nanny” and I called Momma. I love our traditional, Southern dishes (and now that my son is in VA he, too, is missing food he can’t get up there but is “staple” for us) and customs. We all have our traditions and should be proud of our heritages‘.
      After I married my first husband, we traveled all over the US and to Okinawa. I missed the South so much and couldn’t wait to be back here. There really isn’t any place like home!
      After being single following my divorce from my first husband, he was a lot like a character from a certain movie, I re-married a wonderful man who was worth waiting for. Shy, quiet, hard-working and loves me and my sons from my first marriage. He is truly a Southern Gentleman. We live in the country and love the life away from the city. But over the last 16 years the city has slowly been moving out here towards us. I am still able to go outside and look up to a big beautiful sky, full of stars. Deer roam through our acres of land and there are plenty of other wild-life to observe during any time of the year.
      The other "thing" I missed were the people. They are different down here; some places are an exception to the rule but for the most part friendly is the word that comes to mind.
      If you‘re ever down my way, please let me know and I’d love to meet with you.
      If you‘re from the Carolina’s then PM me and we’ll talk about our states.
      We‘re not alone, almost each region has it’s own group. Let’s chat sometime and get to know one another.
      From Edgefield,SC, love, blessings and Happy New Year.
      Maria
