I'm from a small town outside of Houston, Texas, and am unashamedly proud of my southern roots. I simply feel that the south is one of the greatest places in the world.
But somehow I ended up moving to New York City and making it my new home! Don't get me wrong, I love New York, but it is nothing compared to the south.
Here are some of the reasons why:
1. The Seasons
It's practically always summer in the south which means eating ice cream on the front porch... in February
Southern gentlemen open doors for ladies without question, but New York men wait for women to open the door for them
The south is the only place where people consider macaroni and mashed potatoes to be vegetables
4. Sweet Tea
There's nothing better than a pitcher of iced tea that you know your mamma mixed half of a bag of sugar into
5. Country Music
George Strait, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson. If you think these cowboys are from the north, well bless your heart
The only things sweeter in the south than the sweet tea are the accents
In the south, Sundays are for the Lord and Saturdays are for the SEC
