Monday Manners: Southern Do’s for a Good Conversation

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Our trip to Charleston for a wedding was so fun!  Unfortunately, I completely forgot to snap photos at the event, so no weekend recap this time.   I thought I’d provide y’all with some Southern Monday Manners today.  Enjoy!

  2. A very early good morning from Tokyo!

    I love your bon mots for conversing properly. They're very simple, and more often than not, people do use them. Most of them.

    Thank you again for sharing. A lovely day to you and yours…



  3. There is nothing worse than a conversation monopolizer that never lets you get a word in edgewise! Great reminders, Ashley! Hope your weekend wedding trip was lots of fun!
