My True Self

Miss Janice is doing the BEST giveaway! Click here to enter.

Miss Janice is so fabulous, I can't even begin to tell you! She throws the best parties and always shares pictures, she does a post each week featuring a reader photographed in her best Lilly, she always lends advice on etiquette and is just plain fun to read!

I think I've written about my desire to move "South" in the past. My father lives in Naples, Florida and I just love it there. I grew up spending nearly every vacation in Naples and would LOVE to evacuate this tundra and head to Florida!

However, B and I have discussed moving to other Southern locales like: Tennessee, New Orleans, Savannah, anywhere in the Carolina's, Richmond or D.C. or really anywhere in the South!

I just love the Southern lifestyle. Getting to know some of you Southern ladies through blogging has only cemented my desire! I feel like Southerners are different than people in the Midwest. While I appreciate the Midwestern values I have, the people aren't always so kind to one another here in Detroit! (Really! Don't ever consider this a place for a vacation...Northern Michigan? Yes! Its wonderful, but Southeastern Michigan isn't really all that great. I hate to say it!)

Anyway, enough rambling on about my evacuation plans and obsession with Southern style, grace and just plan Southernness and head on over and visit Miss Janice. I promise you'll be glad you did!

You should move to Savannah!!!! It would be so fun to be real life friends!

I'm in DC and I think that is about as south as I can be! I want to visit other places, of course, but being a New Englander, I don't think I could handle it :)

Come down to Florida! My family is originally from Michigan (East Lansing and the UP), and all of them still live there but my parents and myself. So far we are the only ones who made it down here, but we are always trying to recruit! I'm sure you'd love Fla...plus, the weather is unbeatable :)

P.S. sounds like you already have a start because of your dad in Naples!

I always love checking out a new blog! And I think you should def. move further south, if possible! You strike me as much more of a Southern Gal than a Northerner!

What a sweet post! You are definitely an honorary southerner :) I've had a lot of fun living in Florida, but I do miss Atlanta where it is a lot more southern.

I love Naples. We go there too! My parents have a place there. You would love Maine--it is divine in the summer. xoxo

FYI - STAY away from DC. Serioulsy, this is a terrible place to live. There is no southern hospitality here - AT ALL. Richmond, yes. I adore Richmond, and you'd also probably love Charlottesville.

You'd also love Springfield, Missouri. It's on the very, very, bottom of the Midwest Tier, and sits almost on the Arkansas line. It's beautiful and the people are friendly.

You'd also like Oxford, or Columbus Mississippi. Good luck!

And congratulations on winning Miss Janice's giveaway.
