Southern Living's Christmas All Through the South: Review and Giveaway
The sweetest memories fill my mind of my maternal grandmother, Grandma Cleva and her collection of Southern Living books she would bring out throughout the year, but none so often as when she would display the Christmas books. Even as a young child, I thought Southern Living books were a cut above any other holiday publication that came across my young hands. I am now approaching my 40th Christmas, preceded a few days by my milestone birthday and that treasured stack of Grandma Cleva's Southern Living books now graces the bookshelf in my home. I open up the pages of the books, now each a beloved heirloom, to see the timeless holiday wonder I was drawn to as a child.
When I received a copy of Southern Living's new holiday publication "Christmas All Through The South", one look at the beautiful cover and I smiled so brightly on the outside AND the inside. This book already has been given a place of honor on our living room coffee table for guests to peruse this season and my enjoyment. It is over 400 pages of Southern holiday splendor in an heirloom-quality hardcover book.
