"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

:: the lullaby of the crickets, cicadas, and frogs
:: lightning bugs
:: watching amazing thunderstorms from a hammock on a front porch
:: people walk and talk slower, and are generally more relaxed
