Hi, I’m Jennifer. I’m a sassy southern girl living in the midwest. While I grew up in North & South Carolina, home is now Lincoln, NE. Don’t go thinking all cornfields and farms on me now. Lincoln is a pretty cool city with a population of close to 300,000 and, of course, home to the Cornhuskers football team. My husband, Paul, along with our 5 children, moved to Lincoln back in 2007.
Since you can take the girl out of the South but you can’t take the South out of the girl, I like to think I bring a little Southern vibe to the Midwest and my friends would agree. I recently asked one of my closest friends how she would describe me. Her response, “Kind-hearted with a little southern sass.”
Even though I think I’ve lost most of my Southern accent, it takes less than 30 seconds for someone to ask, “Where are you from?” And my kids tell me my southern accent ireally comes out when I’m mad.
Growing up with a Southern mama, I was taught to always act like a lady, not to go out in public unless I was dressed nice and wearing make-up, and to love Jesus and sweet tea. Let’s face it, my mama taught me a lot more than that, but you get the idea.
I hope you enjoy the blog as I bring a little southern to the midwest and the internet.
