What's the best part of raising a family in the South?

The best part of raising a family in the south is the sense of community. Many people will tell you that it takes a village to raise a child, and while I don't necessarily disagree, the sense of family and friendliness in the South can't be found elsewhere. The fact that this warm environment embeds itself in your child is a wonderful thing!

What's the biggest misconception about living in the South?

The biggest misconception about living in the South is that we are a bunch of uneducated hicks! On the contrary, some of the nation's best public universities are in the south, and some of the world's largest companies (such as Coca-Cola, Delta, UPS, Rubbermaid) are situated in Atlanta! The film tax initiative has created an artist environment that rivals Hollywood, allowing more and more film and television to be shot in our great state of Georgia!

What do your kids love most about living in the South?

Red is still quite small, not yet 2.5 years old. I'm not sure he understands that he is a red blooded Southerner quite yet, although he already has a love for biscuits and fried chicken.

I hope he grows up to appreciate the history of the South, to understand and then learn from it. I hope that he loves to travel to each state, seeing the specifics of the Southern culture; the metro"big cities", the slow speed of lowcountry, the gorgeous terrain of the mountains. Overall, I hope that when he grows up, he will be proud to call himself a Southerner.
