I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
