"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

reasons why i love living in a small, southern town

:: no matter where you go, you always run into someone you know
:: people wave at you when you're driving regardless of if they know you or not
:: the people are incredibly polite
:: you see old friends and can talk about everything like the last time you saw them was just the other day
:: there are still dirt roads
:: all the boiled peanut stands on the sides of the roads
:: your last name means something, and carries some weight
:: my state has one-hundred, eighty-seven miles of coast
none of which are far away}
