A Chic Peach

Going back to Georgia always makes me want to eat loads of peaches.  As a kid I remember long road trips through grove after grove of peaches.  (That’s where it gets it’s nickname of the Peach State for those of you not familiar with it.)  My Papou (my Mom’s Dad) used to come to visit and he always called me, “Georgia” which I immediately told him in my thick southern drawl, “My name’s not Geooorgia!”  Then he always asked me why I lived in Georgia if my name wasn’t Georgia and to a little seven year old I couldn’t see that he was being silly and tried to reason with this man who obvious didn’t know how the world worked, and replied, “because my name is Tiiina!”  (Said more like Teeeena with a southern accent.)

I never considered myself a Georgia Peach growing up.  That seemed like something only girls that “got the vapers”, called kisses “sugar”, said “bless her heart!” after speaking ill of another pretty girl and always used the plural form of you all as, “ya’ll” would be called.  Hmmm… so I might be guilty of using the word “ya’ll” especially when I am very relaxed or welcoming someone into my home.  So, maybe I am well on my way to being a Georgia Peach, but I prefer to think of myself as a Chic Peach!  It has a nice little ring to it don’t you think?

I thought a little Chic Peach Inspiration was in order since we will be spending a few days in Atlaaanta (southern drawl has kicked back in quick!)…

Lovely images and such a sweet story about you and your grandpa! I hope the weather can turn around for you! All summer long we have had nothing but sunshine andd this week it is rain. Not so welcoming for someone who lives in Denmark and could use a little sun. Have a great visit with your family!
