The beauty of the South

I love thanksgiving so much that I’ve been perpetuating this American tradition in Switzerland for several years now. Tonight, after having cooked for 25 people, I sit back thinking of all that I am grateful for. One particular thing comes to mind. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to discover the south of the United States. I’ve only been fortunate enough to travel to Louisiana and Georgia, but I plan on doing a full southern road trip one day.

I love:

  • The hospitality – Southerners always make you feel welcome and no one knows how to host a better party.
  • The “Colgate” smiles – I’ve never found people with whiter teeth or bigger smiles. Not to mention the perfect lipstick.
  • Selfcare – Southerners know how to take care of themselves and always look perfect. As my sisters and I say, “Looking good, means feeling good, means doing good”.
  • The water – It seems to be omnipresent. There’s always a lake, a river or an ocean to bring serenity.
  • The music – Whether it’s jazz or country I love it.
  • The food – The best food of the country is in the south.
  • Life’s pleasures – People take full advantage of them. In French we would say “bon vivant”, meaning someone who knows how to really enjoy life.
  • The rhythm of life – Not too fast.
  • Spanish moss dangling from trees – Pure magic.
  • Sweet tea – The best drink in a hot summer afternoon.
  • Porches – The best place to dream on a rocking chair and to drink sweet tea.
  • The weather – Hot and humid, just how I love it, and my skin does too.
  • Traditions – I have recently realized that I’m a tradition kind of gal.
  • The importance of family – nothing is more important to me.
  • The accent – My favorite.

On this note, happy Sunday y’all.
