Life of a Southern Belle Award - MILDRED'S MENAGERIE

It's been quite some time since I've given a Life of a Southern Belle Award. It isn't that I don't read fabulous posts all the time...I absolutely DO...but for a blogger to receive the award, a post just has to "strike me."

Today, I read a marvelous post on a Gracious Southern Lady over at Mildred's Menagerie. I adore Mildred, who herself is a MOST gracious southern lady. She is an adoring wife and caregiver, a loving sister and a wonderful and supportive blog friend. If you don't already know Mildred, go on over there and see what she and her husband Nalley are up to. I'm betting that you'll become as much of a fan as am I!

In case you've forgotten about the Life of a Southern Belle Award, when I find a blog/post that inspires me or tickle me to no end and I say to that gal is a Southern Belle. Southern Belleness transcends is a philosophy...a state of and substance...wit and and sunshine...grit and, and much more. This isn't an award that one passes along to someone else. It can ONLY come from ME!!!

Congratulations Mildred...

While you're visiting Mildred, you might go see her sister Karen and her new blog. Caleb's Story is about Karen's memories of her very special son who, like my brother Ned, was born with Down Syndrome. Karen is new to blogland, so go over there and give her a hearty welcome.


  1. I never heard of your award and at first thought I would never qualify as being one of the most 'watchin the corn grow Midwestern gal' you have ever met! But I am off to visit Mildred. Hooray!


  2. I am very honored and I thank you so very much. You are a treasured blog friend and I wish you a very nice week.

  3. Thank you very much for your encouragement!

  4. Congratulations to Mildred. I am off to read her blog and also her sisters. Thanks for sharing. Love & blessings from NC!

  5. Thanks for introducing us to another blogger. I am heading off to read it right now. I am a southerner that has been transplanted to the north and let me just say that it has been a huge adjustment.


Please makes me HAPPY!
