This is me taking things out of my comfort level. I don’t normally ‘do’ me, so we’ll just call this- the small print.

Part of my story:

I’m a 40-something modern southern belle. I believe in manners and social graces.  But I am not the shrinking violet I once was.

I am a dreamer, a believer, and an outside the box thinker.  I’m a dork, and I am weird- but I  believe it only adds to my charm. Maybe I should add, I might also be a tad delusional with that last statement? 😉

I think (good)chocolate and (better)wine/beer should have their own separate category in the food pyramid and be daily requirements.

    🙂 Your introduction made me smile. A beautiful blog, and beautiful verses. Now, where do I sign up for the addendum of the food pyramid?

  7. Thank you for following my blog; it led me to yours.
    Love your about page…your personality shines through. I’m also from/live in the South, but I’m more hillbilly than Southern bell. 😀

    • But isn’t that what a true southern bell is, if not at least part hillbilly and spice!? 😀
      Thank you for your kind words, I’m excited to have you on board, to read your writing and share mine! hugs*

      • I suppose you are right re a southern belle…I can dress up and slap on the war paint, but just as easily skin and gut a deer. 😀
        I’m looking forward to reading more of your writing. I’m in the middle of getting a novel prepared to send out to literary agents, so my leisure time is limited; but I will be popping back in from time to time.

    Thank you so much for the follow; a very gracious act. You had me at good chocolate (and lost me at wine… never really got a taste for the grape and grain – but we can bond over chocolate).

    Dear Melanie
    I have made my site private for now. Life slightly messed up. Please request access if you still wanna read me. Sorry for the inconvenience.
    I may open an altogether new site under a new pseudonym. I’ll let you know as and when that happens.
    And could you delete this message after reading?
    Thanks. Nandita.

    Can we start a petition to make sure the last line is actually accepted worldwide by all? 😉 Very cool intro.

    You certainly caught my attention. A rather transparent introduction, I would say. Refreshingly inviting in non-threatening comfort. I likes it a lot. I’ll be back. Forgive the overused movie lines. A habit of mine.

    I’ll at least agree that you are an outside the box thinker and very charming. 🙂 I second your motion for an update to the food pyramid!
