~The Adventures of a Southern Lady ~

“My dear girl, the Yankees aren’t fiends. They have not horns and hoofs, as you seem to think. They are pretty much like Southerners- except with worse manners, of course, and terrible accents.” ~ Rhett Butler in the movie GONE WITH THE WIND (1939).

What happens when a southern lady moves to Connecticut? Well for this lady, it is new adventures and experiences that I look forward to! I am a native of Mississippi and lived most of my life there. When I remarried in December 2022, our wedding trip included visiting historic sites in Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island. Several times while in Connecticut, I said, “I love it here so much! I wish we could live here!” My husband was looking for a new job, as he did not like where he was working in Mississippi. He applied to jobs all over the country and the Connecticut job was the best offer by chance!

This blog will document our journey as we move forward to start a new life in New England along with showcasing interesting historic sites and occasionally the viewpoint of a southerner. Join me on my journey to a new life in a quaint town in charming Connecticut!
