Well I don’t consider many parts of Georgia as country at all, but what we have here is HEART.  Incidentally I am originally from Memphis/No. Mississippi area and am used to the fact that we’re southern.  I feel I’m Southern by the grace of God and while I enjoy jaunts to other parts of the country (left coast and up north), I feel like I’m home and in my element when I am in the south.  Once I went to Miami and was having breakfast at a popular spot (Miami is in SOUTH FL hello?) and the people all around me (the entire place basically) was from Jersey or NYC.  The waitress asked me (in NYC accent) “You talk sooo cute, where are you from?”  I said, I’m from the South.  To me, in the south like here, YOU talk funny.  This is the south ya know!! lol!

I love the fact that I’m less than an hour from the gorgeous mountains, great wineries (amazing brunches there), good hiking, and views in fall that would take your breath away.  The fall festivals and apple picking is always a good time.

I also love the fact that the city of atlanta is less than 30 min away from me and I have so many great restaurants and attractions nearby that you could never get bored!

The GA coast about 4 hrs away is naturally gorgeous.  Hanging moss in trees, historic places (who doesn’t love Savannah?  One of the most romantic cities imho) and just beautiful.

I’m blessed to be in GA.  It’s diversity as a state is amazing to me!

Haha–moving to the south is 90% in my future.  That’s something to look forward to!  Glad you didn’t get eaten!

My coworker moved here almost 5 yrs ago and was from Manhattan.  She loved it here, was able to afford a really nice house (cheaper than in  NYC) and so much space!

but I will NEVER forget when we went to the cafeteria at the hospital together for lunch.  Lots of good ol’ home cooking there.  We had on the menu that day “greens and fried okra” as some of the vegetable sides.  She looked at it and was like “Whaaaaat is that?”

She had never seen okra before and we made her eat it!  She did like it though.  She surmised her thoughts on our cooking as this: “You people down South will fry ANYTHING and make it taste good.  Just dip it in ranch dressing.”  Lmao!

I don’t see a lot of mumu’s either (I’m in Canton, GA) but the wal-mart near my house is a fright fest of epic proportions!
