Belles and Beaus—
I can’t believe it has only been 9 months since I started Lessons from a Southern Belle and already I have hit 1000 followers. I am so floored, so very humbled, and so incredibly proud of what this little project has turned into.
I started the blog for one simple reason: I wanted to share my heritage. I think that as we grow and change we tend to forget the most important part of our past…and that is where we come from. This blog was always meant to celebrate the women in my life and the advice they have given me over the years, but it too has transformed in barely a year. It really is a celebration of all Southern women and what we bring to the table as far as our lives go.
I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I wish there were a way I could invite all of you over and we could sit on the back porch for some sweet tea. Buuuut…since so many of you are far away and that just isn’t possible right now, I’ve decided to have a giveaway!
On July 27th, I will be posting the prize package from Teavana (worth over $75.00) and contest rules in that post. The winner will be selected from a random drawing and the package will be shipped to them. I’ll include more information when I post on August July 27th.
Again, let me personally thank you all for following this blog, sending inspirational messages, and for always encouraging me to continue. There are a lot more exciting things coming for Lessons from a Southern Belle in the near future and I do hope you all will stay along for the ride!
Your Favorite Southern Belle
It isn’t that as we grow older we lose our pride; it is that we learn to humble ourselves.
The scars, wrinkles, and blemishes you find yourself scorning in the mirror should be worn as proudly as a soldier’s medals on his chest.
When you see people on the street who have unnaturally colored hair or body modifications, compliment them. It would be the same way if they saw you in your Sunday’s best. We all have things we are proud of.
