A Yankee Girl in a Southern World!

"The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." ~Clairee, Steel Magnolias Learn More

Hi y'all! I'm Mindy, a PA Yankee living in the land of sweet tea. I'm a southern transplant by way of the Air Force, I wouldn't have it any other way! A lover of Southern culture, sweet tea, homemade pasta, eating, traveling, old mills, & abandoned places, I'm always finding new places to explore. View the south through my eyes and learn about the culture and people that call it home!
