"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

New life goal courtesy of E. and A.: Be awesome.
I had lunch with one of my best friends on Wednesday.
She told me stories of Indonesia, and I told her stories of back home.
We talked for two hours, and left feeling like we could conquer the world.
And we can. Watch us do it.

P.S. Did you know that in Indonesia you can {illegally} buy a baby tiger for thirty American dollars?
