Christmas is About Making it Your Own
I am sure most Southern ladies can associate with this post. Southern Proper is such a fun company that has really embraced the lifestyle of Southern men. This email was in my inbox this morning, and it reminded me of a gift that my aunt gave my brother for Christmas one year. Both my dad and brother are avid hunters. Around this time of year, they would spend all of their time in the woods if my mother allowed them to. Knowing this, my aunt (who is incredibly creative) made my brother a strand of shotgun shell Christmas lights. As you all know, I attempt to make my Christmas as pink and green as possible. My aunt gave him something that would make his Christmas a little more personal as well. It just made me think that the holidays are about making it special and adapting your decorations to your lifestyle. So here is just a little idea for all those Southern beaus who have everything. And if you don't think you could make a strand, here is where you can buy them!
