Why I love South Carolina

Here are some of my favorite things about living in the friendly state of South Carolina:

  • I love the wardrobe. Jeans, flip-flops and a Carolina Girl t-shirt.
  • Mom & Pop shops. They make you feel like you are family and that you are the only customer in the store.
  • Our every day greeting "Hey Y'all!"
  • You can have grits for dinner.
  • Sweet tea, as Paula Deen calls it "House wine of the South"
  • I love the fact that you can actually get to the country in less than 10 minutes. Seeing the farms, horses, cows and country living is so beautiful. Feels like a getaway.
  • Southern Hospitality and charm.
  • The fact that there is an actual senior citizen to greet you when you walk into Wal-Mart. Then as you leave they say in a Southern accent "Thanks for shopping at Wal-Mart, Y'all come back".
  • Most people hold the door open for you and allow you to cross through the parking lot.
  • I just could not imaging living anyplace else :)


  1. Im so gonna be in the south one day for good. WE are going to Texas in march..CANT WAIT!

  2. I love the South! I went to North Carolina/South Carolina on a vacation once. LOVED IT! It is one of my dreams to live down there, Alan- not so much. Not only do you have southern hospitality, but it is absolutely gorgeous there as well.Guess I have to live vicariously through you.
    Your funny to show your girls my picture... Thanks for the complements! Lord knows when your pregnant you can use all you can get.

  3. I love living in North Carolina (hey, we are practically neighbors). There are so many fabulous things about the south.

  4. Everything you said is the same here in Texas only done a little slower and a lot bigger. lol
    sounds like a wonderful place to live and love, thank you for sharing

  5. i live in palmetto ga seeing that tree on the flag reminded me of that

  6. All of these things represent the south all together. I love the walamrt greeters. I joke with mom that when she retires, that is what she should do, she loves to talk.

  7. I love this too:

    Sweet tea, as Paula Deen calls it "House wine of the South"

  8. I moved to South Carolina just a few months ago and it is absolutely amazing! I love every part of living down here and I have even gotten used to the alligators in the rivers and snakes in the ditch behind my house (I am from Ukraine, so it is quite a change for me.) Southern hospitality, friendliness and lots of sun are definitely the best things about living in SC for me.

  9. I moved last year to SC (from Spain) and I would never had expected this great state! I travelled a bit inside US and by far very polite people, willing to help you...

    Recently I said, WOH! I love South Carolina! so I came up with a design you can find on the link on my name...

    I hope you like it as I do!
