A Southern Love Letter from Marissa

by in Main on

This month, in honor of all things love, we’ll be sharing a valentine a week from an SW gal. Marissa is up today, and this is her love letter to the South, which she’s just left to follow her husband’s baseball career to Arizona.

    For some reason, I’ve been desperately wishing I lived in the south right now! And this doesn’t help…I love how much you all love where you live, and I love the culture that brought you up! Can’t wait to read more, and hopefully (crossing my fingers) I’ll be able to plan a wedding down there someday :) xoxo

    Marissa, you are adorable! The South misses you as well! :) xo

    I left the South for Arizona about a year and a half ago for my (now) fiance’s job! I miss the South dearly as well, most especially when I receive my Southern Living magazine in the mail. But don’t fret… there’s lots to like about Arizona (the mountains are gorgeous and constantly changing as the light does), and you can still occasionally find sweet tea in restaurants (Firehouse Subs, for one). Best of luck, and if you’re looking for a new friend in Tucson or Phoenix (I live in the first, commute for work to the second), let me know! =)

      Oh my goodness, Jessica! You’re the sweetest! I do enjoy it here, but of course, change is always hard. We’ll only be here for a bit, but so appreciate the sweet offer! xx

    I love this so much! As a Southern girl who has been out in California for three years, this is exactly how I feel. I’m heading back to Nashville this weekend, and this makes me even more excited to get back to all the things I love.

    Marissa, thank you for this beautiful letter and welcome to the west side of the country! I promise it’s just as beautiful and unique in it’s own way, and I’m sure you’ll find things to love during your time here.
