Tonight I feel like my whole body is made out of memories. I’m a mix-tape, a cassette that’s been rewound so many times you can hear the fingerprints smudged on the tape.

When someone invites you over for dinner, you don’t bring leftovers. That would be rude. So how come people bring their past relationship baggage into their relationships? That’s no different than bringing LEFTOVERS!
I had to drive 4 hours unexpectedly on Thursday from Baton Rouge to Shreveport, LA for work. We were having a class in Shreveport and I had to get the instructor from point A to point B.
We were staying at a local hotel that just happens to be a casino. I was a little leery and way tired by the time I got there. So I walked into the casino and was greeted by very loud Cajun music. I look over in the corner and there is this little old lady (looked around 80) with her walker. She is just going to town bopping up and down to the music. I have to say it was one of the cutest and funniest things I had seen in a long time. She was so happy to be there and dancing as best as she could.
It made me realize it really is the little things in life. I could have gone about the rest of my night and complained about being tired but just seeing how happy that lady was reminded me enjoy the small things in life!
“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. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything 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 but loves her momma and will always be daddy’s little girl.”
