On Being Southern

Beautiful, Southern women always have their pearls ... 
 a reminder the real beauty is on the inside of the shell. I just LOVE this picture of one of my favorite Magnolia Hill brides. Smart, beautiful, gracious, talented...just precious, and yet "down to earth" as my mama would say.

"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."
Proverbs 4:23
 
 " The most beautiful voice in the world is that of an educated Southern woman." 
                                                                                       _Winston Churchill


High Cotton 
Cotton has long been the symbol of the South...and why do we say and sing about "High  Cotton"? The term "high cotton" or "tall cotton" originates from the rural farming community in the pre Civil War era  when "high cotton" meant that the crops were good and the prices, were, too. The term has generalized to mean one is doing well or is successful. Here, a bit of cotton, a few magnolia leaves, a bit of burlap and satin ribbon make for the perfect bridal bouquet.

                                  Southern Living...
Where the tea is sweet, 
our words are long, 
 the days are warm 
and our faith is strong.

Known for our Peach tea at Magnolia Hill, it just seems perfect for spring or summer. Fresh sliced peaches, juicy and full of fresh picked flavor make cold iced tea almost addictive. Perfect for porch sippin' and planning a wedding!
