Life is Sweet, Y’All

Now, here’s an idea for Mother’s Day!

If this sounds like a promo, IT IS—simply because I found Maggie Wallem Rowe‘s new little gift book Life is Sweet Y’All so enchanting and downright fun.

Already recognized as Amazon’s # 1 New Release in Cultural, Ethnic, and Regional Humor, it’s a feel-good collection of hilarity, wisdom, practical tips, and good old southern recipes.

The cover copy sums it up:

“Zip that lip!”

“Don’t be a worrywart!”

Do either of those Mama expressions sound familiar? Life Is Sweet, Y’all is a collection of delightful reflections laced with timeless truths and folksy quips from the past that celebrate the sweet gifts the good Lord provides. Packed with plenty of practical life lessons, helpful household hints, and recipes that Mama used to make, this handy guide to a happy life makes a great gift for any woman who longs for yesteryear. Consider it a slice of heaven topped with a whole lot of love and laughter.

Gift it with a vintage hanky and you’ll have a winner.


Now, this week’s pics, straight from our yard. 🧡
