Why Grits and Pearls? Because those are two things most Southern girls love, yet they are both so different.
I’ve always LOVED grits, especially with cheese added! And Shrimp and Grits is one of my favorite Southern dishes (I’ll load my recipe later). Yet “grit” defines a person who is tough and strong, which is also much like a Southern woman. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 44, after 4 years and several doctors struggled with my varying symptoms and declining health. Even though I live with this illness, those around me often forget my struggle because I know to be strong and tough in the face of adversity.
As for pearls . . . well, every Southern girl knows that pearls can make any outfit more lovely and soften our hearts. So, hopefully, through my thoughts, and answers to your questions, I can share with you my grit and pearls of everyday life.
