Our last guest blogger for "Southern September" is Shari from Little Blue Deer. She is one of the sweetest bloggers I have met since I started this journey a few months ago. I can't tell you how touched I was by the first comment she ever made on my blog!! I still take that thought with me today and it keeps me motivated!
Shari lives in my favorite place in the South...Savannah, GA. Her and her husband own a coffee shop in town. So, I knew I would love her as soon as I saw Savannah and coffee! Shari is going to share with us her favorite part of being southern- living in the Lowcountry and oyster roasts. Sounds delicious! Enjoy!!
I am delighted to be posting here at Flip Flops and Pearls! I love Jade, she's one of my favorite bloggers and I try to stop by and see her daily! Living in Savannah, what is known as the Lowcountry, a favorite Southern activity is the oyster roast! All you need are a boatload of fresh oysters, a pit for roasting, and about 50 of your closest friends! Also, some Saltines, melted butter and hot sauce (and beer, if that's your thing!). I adore roasted oysters, and generally eat my weight in them when given the opportunity! Oyster roasts are such relaxed, casual affairs, my favorite are those held in the fall and early spring, I love to bundle up and stand by the fire in the crisp air! I have included some photos of my in-laws' home in Bluffton, South Carolina, home of many an oyster roast. Some of my favorite memories are here, I love how it sits high on a bluff over the May River, I love to sit on one of the benches, look at the river, and consider how fortunate I am to be a Southern girl! Thank you again, Jade!
