Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! I'm so excited to finally be dipping my toe into the world of blogging and sharing my thoughts and ramblings with all of you!!! Let me warn you…I have NO idea what I’m doing, so please bear with me as I try to become as dangerous as possible on here!!

I must confess…..I’ve been **stalking** some of you out there in blog land for several years now!! Kristen’s, Between Naps on the Porch, Melissa’s Heart and Home, Savvy Seasons by Liz, Allyson, Rhoda, the Nester and many, many more have all been inspiring me for what seems like forever with their creativity, wonderful ideas, and amazing homes. My pitiful attempts at blogging will pale in comparison, but you don’t ever learn unless you try!

Now, for a little about me….I’m a true Southern girl, born and raised in the South. I love everything about the South, especially the “old” South where ladies acted like ladies and gentlemen acted like gentlemen. All of my favorite things are Southern….I love linen and lace, vintage silver, seashells, and animal print (that’s where the modern part comes in!) My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird, my favorite drink is Sweet Tea, my favorite food is down-home Southern cooking, my favorite town is Savannah, Georgia, my favorite flower is the magnolia, and my dream home would be a big white house with tall, white columns. I bet you can even guess my favorite movie….yep, you guessed it…Steel Magnolias. Get the picture??

I believe being truly Southern is a state of mind that is imparted at birth, if you’ve been raised right, that is! Being Southern is about more than just loving fried chicken, sweet tea, magnolias, and high school football on Friday nights. Being Southern is about always being hospitable (even when you don‘t want to be), always practicing the Golden rule, respecting the Lord and our country, and knowing the importance of family.

I consider myself truly fortunate to have been raised in the South. My grandmother and mother raised me as an old-fashioned Southern girl, and I have named my blog “Southern Charm” in honor of the values and traditions they instilled in me. I’m delighted you stopped by for a visit, and I look forward to sitting a spell and visiting with ya’ll!

  11. Another newbie here. This blog is great. I also have been following many of these amazing ladies for a while now. Just recently started my own blog but haven't done much with it. I find between not having enough time and learning so many new things, I get a bit overwhelmed. I'll keep trying even if it's baby steps.

  13. Your blog looks great! Looks like you've been blogging for a while so I was surprised to see you just started. Noticed that you're favorite city is Savannah, GA. Yippee! Mine too. I used to live there. I noticed on your above comment that you left your readers a comment. You probably already know this but you can set your comments to come directly to your email and then just hit reply if you want to comment back. I just had someone ask me the other day about it and she had been blogging for a year so you never know. Some things about blogging jump right out at you while others seem to elude us. I'm still learning myself.
    Enjoyed my visit!
