Here's to Hometowns

One of my favorite things about interning at Southern Living is being surrounded by the beautifully penned words of some of the South's best journalists. Take this quote from Richard Banks, a senior writer at SL:

"I lived 33 of my 44 years in Memphis. Now after eight years away, the city’s culture is still under my finger nails like ribs and sauce, and its music reverberates in my head."

In the same spirit, I know Montgomery may not seem like much to some, but I'll always defend my sweet little river town .

Where do you lay claim?
