Kentucky ... Southern?

I read with interest your essay about Kentucky. I'm like you ... Yes, we are southern. Yes, I know that Kentucky was a border state. I even had a great-great-grandfather who was in the Union Army. I even lived in western Ohio for a stint with my school principal dad and family. We came back to Kentucky after my high school graduation, at which time I attended Transylvania University.

Now that I am older, I think about my dear, sweet Kentucky, which is my home in my heart too. I cannot think of any other state of which I would want to be a resident. I have started writing about my beloved state, and the land of my fathers. I track three sides of my family to being Kentucky pioneers who were all here at the end of the 1700s. We are southern in more ways than any other. I say we are southern.

That's my story and I am sticking to it! Ha!

I know you...

You are my "Lil Sweetheart," my dear niece with whom I've always had a special relationship since I could hold you in one hand. I'm proud of you, Kristy, and hope other Kentucky Monthly readers will have a special relationship with you too as your writing career grows.

After reading your introduction I feel like we are friends, or would be if we were properly introduced in person. Thanks for being someone that reminds me of my Southern roots and the importance of being a proper lady. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Alicia, then it is very nice to virtually meet you! Glad you found a something-like-home with my words. I am lifting my sweet tea to you!
