I have been a follower of Shellie for several years, even before her first book hit store shelves (and she just happens to be a member of Southern Mommas!). I found her originally when I was living “up nawth” in New York and was desperate for some southerness. While roaming the internet I found her “porch” at All Things Southern, and her very first eBook. She was like a breath of warm, humid southern air to my cold, snow-blind self. Well, the Shellie I came to know and love online has a wonderful book full of sweet, southern wisdom! She writes, “Our Southern Mamas have filled our lives with important values and silly little lagniappe, all woven into the fabric of our lives so subtly that it takes a discerning eye and a determined focus to bring them to light. Like a sentimental add-a-pearl necklace, each gem symbolizing an important event or a milestone, these mother-daughter jewels all have a unique value. It is up to each of us, the daughters of the South, to take the time to thread them into beautiful heirlooms worthy of bequeathing to the next generation.” So if you haven’t already read Suck Your Stomach In & Put Some Color On! I encourage you to get yourself a copy and read it quickly, because in May, Shellie’s newest book will be hitting store shelves!
Now, how can that one not be a winner?
