Would you like to know what’s new in the shops of Fairhope prior to First Friday Artwalk? You’ve come to the right place. Beginning in July, I will share a post that has a list of brand new items or events to enjoy during First Friday Artwalk and the following month. While sipping wine and nibbling goodies made by shop owners, you just might find the perfect pair of shoes or a dress for a summer wedding.
I read a little quip recently that said, “All things are possible with coffee and mascara!” I decided to update it a little. “Southern life is easier with a little wine and waterproof mascara!” With summer fast approaching, you just never know when you might need to enjoy a glass of sangria near a body of water!
I’ve heard the phrase “hissy fit” all of my life. Most of the time, I’ve heard it used to refer to a woman who has an unreasonable temper tantrum. It’s also said here in the south that a woman doesn’t “have” a hissy fit, but she pitches or throws one.
Do you know the legend of the Mardi Gras King Cake? I confess, that I didn’t until this year. I have lived in Mardi Gras territory for almost 1/2 of my married life; but, have obviously been hit in the head with too many parade beads and moonpies.
This weekend, three more southern boys were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. To say that we grow them tough here in the south is an understatement. The list of our southern boys who have gone on from college, not only to play in the pros, but to be the best on the field, should make all southerners proud.
