Obviously I can’t speak for all southern girls, but I’m pretty sure I can speak for most. We love Grandma’s cooking on a Sunday and cheering on the home team. We love football and tailgating, which, by the way, is a dress up occasion. Actually, everything is a dress up occasion. We love sundresses and kitten heels, and backless dresses paired with a pair of stilettos. We love tank tops with cut off denim shorts and flip flops with our hair pulled up in a ponytail. We love our cowboy boots and will wear them with anything. A southern girl always wear just a little mascara and at least a swipe of lip gloss, and can be sweet as sugar or hot as a firecracker depending on her mood (which, by the way, can change in a hot minute). We love camo and pearls, and won’t even hesitate to wear them together…along with our boots, of course.
Southern girls must have their sweet tea and love to sit on the front porch with their sweethearts. Their men are tough and will ALWAYS drive a truck. They give as good as they get in a relationship, and when they love, they love hard. They are loyal. Sure, they enjoy the finer things in life, but are just as content sitting outside looking at the moon and watching fireflies, or walking a trail in the middle of the woods, or taking a drive while admiring God’s creations, staring in awe at the rolling hills or the coastline, whichever way their mood takes them.
Southern girls are pleasers. We work hard in school and in life, and persevere when things get tough because that’s what we watched our parents do, and that’s what we try to teach our own kids to do. When we fall down we might cry for a minute, but then it’s time to get back up and keep on truckin’. We are professionals, moms, wives, daughters, girlfriends, lovers. We come in all shapes and sizes. When we go to bed at night, we remove our carefully applied makeup, brush our teeth, and say our prayers. We are thankful that we were born and raised in the south, and look forward to another day of hard work, family, friends, and sweet southern life.
