Do I think that I am a southern woman? I like to think that I am a melange of many places I have lived and loved. I am an AmeriCanadian that stills says eh and y'all maybe even in the same sentence. Yes, I am getting a southern accent and my friends and family like to pick on me about it. But I am loving this hot weather, slower pace, kinder people, great BBQ, pick-up truck driving, daisy duke wearing (not this chick), kind of place I find myself in.
Over the years, I have learned to love where I live and find the best things that make it your home.
So what's the message; love and live where you are today. Don't miss anything. Don't wish for something else. Delight in your day if even a little bit.
I wish you could see the explosion of pale pink azalea blooms that literally surround my Mom's house right now. (I will take pics tomorrow) It made even my 6 year old stop and say how wonderful it was. I was glad that she slowed down long enough to see one of nature's beautiful creations. I was sent this link today and it is wonderful. Take time to watch this.
