Hello everyone from the Southern Lady! This is where I write about family, friends, and great subjects that I enjoy. I live in the great state of Kentucky. I love my state, have lived here all my life, retired from Kentucky State Government, and enjoy my retirement.
I think being Southern is a way of life. Southern people enjoy their families, friends, and great southern food in a big way. I love to cook and hope you will check out all my recipes on The Southern Lady Cooks.
I have written many posts about my family and referred to them by Southern names. My twins daughters are Blue Moon and Guinness. (Besides liking sweet tea, they are beer lovers thus their names on here). My son and his wife will be referred to as Video Man and Surrie Belle and my grandson is The Tater Tot. My sweetie pie is the Fahunah Man because in the South, a fahunah is not a native southernah!
We Southerners love company, always have a pot of coffee on the stove, or a big pitcher of sweet tea in the fridge. So, come by and visit for a while, have some cake or cookies or just plain old down home southern cooking. We love to tell stories and talk about “olden times”.
Kentucky’s state song, “My Old Kentucky Home” written by Stephen Foster says it best about our beautiful country here.
I love this verse:
The sun shines bright in My Old Kentucky Home,
‘Tis summer, the people are gay;
The corn-top’s ripe and the meadow’s in the bloom
While the birds make music all the day.
We are known for our beautiful horse farms, race horses, and rich history.
