Well the good news 2 years later is that you actually learn a lot by watching me and others. No effort on our part needed. The bad news is- oh crap, you are watching everything we do!!!
This ephiany is always with me and has made me be more reflective and honestly just want to be a better person. Kinda like the old bumper sticker, I want to be the person my dog thinks I am..... Only my daughter. Brodie was around in college and may have a pretty interesting picture of me in his mind!
So I want to narrow down some things only I can teach you or that I want you to learn from me and no one else.
How to make gumbo, cornbread and shrimp étouffée. These are a part of our shared culture. Nailing a good roux is hard. I'll help you get it down.
What a honky tonk is and hopefully find one to take you to. It is a little microcosm of humanity that you need to understand if you are going to inherit our large country and western vinyl collection. There is a reason you can say Dolly Partons name already.
How to dress for every occasion with confidence so you don't have to worry about your clothes- just being yourself.
How to get back up when life knocks you down, how to brush off people who hurt your feelings and what battles are worth fighting.
I am sure I will think of many, many more. But right now mama is tired and is heading to sleep.
