"Seeing" things a little differently

It’s just a southern thing


It’s like sweet tea, or the big oak trees with moss hanging, gently swaying in the wind.

The moss-covered tree canopy of the Old Florida Heritage Highway









A soft breeze that cools the air and the brightest stars filling the night sky.

People moving at a slower pace, as if to say “there’s plenty of time.”

People smiling and stopping to greet one another speaking with a southern drawl using the slang “y’all  or,  well” in most sentences.

Smelling the incredible foods being cooked in the kitchen such as fried chicken, shrimp or gumbo.

Big porches with swings and rocking chairs for visiting with neighbors and family.

Hot humid summers that seem to last forever, until the crisp cool winters chill the air.

Farmers tending to the fields are becoming less and less these days….. fresh dewberry’s and blackberry’s ready for the picking.

Waterway’s and the Gulf are home to many fisherman and sunbathers enjoying the open waters of the sand and sun. flip-flops, sundresses and maybe a big floppy hat.


Storms that brew quickly and the smell of salt water in the air.

This is my home, The Gulf Coast area nestled in the  southern region of the U.S.  I love it here and I will always be proud to live here.


We are not perfect, we don’t pretend to be. We stand for what we believe in. Please don’t ridicule our ways and we won’t ridicule your’s.

We welcome our visitors with open arms and when you leave, we hope you return one day.


It’s just a southern thing……it’s my thing.


y’all take care now!
