A Southern Girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you about any football team in the SEC. We pick our battles and fight with the heart of a pit bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Our Mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern bell who could direct an army, loves her momma and will always be daddy’s little girl
Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.
Capri is Capri, nothing more to say… It is a piece of Paradise on Earth. The sun, the fragrance of the Sea, the food, the people. Walking in the narrow streets in a full moon summer night let you wish you will stay there forever. ~Max B~
Me- the ever sentimental saver of all things. I’m learning (though not easily) that you have to be able to let things go. If I can’t learn I’ll spend my whole life hurting, and that after all, is no life at all.
Traveling is not just seeing the new; it is also leaving behind. Not just opening the doors; also closing them behind you, never to return. But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see whenever you shut your eyes.
I’m not looking to fall in love. I’m not even necessarily looking for a boyfriend right now. All I really want is to find a nice, good guy I can text late at night, joke around with, and be stupid with. Someone who likes the same music as me, someone, I can easily talk to, someone I can be my total self around and not mind at all. A guy I can waste Friday nights with, laugh with, and have fun with. Someone who’s not perfect, but understands me, you know? Is that really too much to ask for?
(I’m not sure where I found this quote but it really seems to fit right now.)
So I’ve been catching myself daydreaming lately. About nothing and about everything. Mostly about being in a beautiful place with a beach and sand.
Last night I had dinner with some friends at Herbsaint in New Orleans. (I’ll get to Herbsaint in another post) I feel like my friends boyfriend is so wise. He always says something that makes me think. I was telling him about my daydreams and how I have been having them a lot lately and he said “Daydreaming is good for you. It’s how you figure things out and make them a reality.” I got to thinking how true that statement really is. It helps your thought process along and maybe those daydreams will actually motivate me to get moving and make them a reality.
Now if I could only make that daydream about toes in the sand, cool breeze, and warm water come true sometime soon.
Wishin’ I was
Knee Deep in the water somewhere
got the blue sky, breeze and it don’t seem fair
the only worry in the world
is the tide gonna reach my chair

I would spend time thinking about you and I didn’t even know your name yet.
If you are single do you do that? or if you are married did you do that before you were ever introduced to your significant other?
As a joke on my recent trip to New Orleans I went to a tarot card reader. He proceeded to tell me that I have an ex boyfriend that I still talk to that has fairly light features and I have someone else in my life that has dark features who will be competing for me. Supposedly the dark features wins. Yeah we shall see. Anyway, this quote reminds me of that because I wonder all the time about that future person.
I have to say I am obsessed with Adele right now. There is just something about this song that is so catchy. Sort of reminds me of a Nina Simone song.
You had my heart inside of your hands,
But you played it,
You played it,
You played it,
You played it to the beat.
