Come and Sit a Spell

May 7, 2013

Hey y’all!  Pull up a chair and come sit a spell while I tell you about all the goodness that’s coming for you MISSISSIPPI ladies!  I’m Megan from ‘Tis So Sweet, and I am so tickled this day has come!  Let’s face it.  Mississippi girls are one of a kind.  It’s not easy to understand our ways.  It’s where “Bless your heart” doesn’t always mean what you think, and sweet tea has more sugar than water.  It’s where the good ole boys get the girls and those girls are wearin’ heels and pearls.  At least until huntin’ season comes around.  It’s the home of Ruby Bridges, Sela Ward, Oprah Winfrey, and Faith Hill.  Mississippi has one of the biggest school rivalries around where every spring and summer, the ladies are sweet and polite…and then football season starts.  And, to the surprise of many, we are proud of our Mississippi ways!

We understand each other.  And that, my darlins, is where this whole idea began.  The amazing and down to earth Park Wife had a vision.  A mission to gather, grow, and connect bloggers state to state.  Her vision became a reality in Arkansas when she started Arkansas Women Bloggers, a community where Arkansas women bloggers can come together to learn from each other, get to know each other, and encourage one another.  Such a success, her vision grew as it ventured into other states.  Finally, Mississippi Women Bloggers was born!  And here we are!
