"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

A story of haves and have nots
Tuesday: electricity+heat come on. no furniture. still no food.
Wednesday: morning grocery shopping. still looks like we have nothing, but at least there's food now. bought a table and chairs for the kitchen. bought a mattress set. now we have a place to sleep. had dinner with some good friends. we had ribs. it was delicious.
Thursday: we opened a lot more of our presents that were mailed to us here. now we have almost everything we need.
