September Issue of Southern Living

Alas. Three days and counting until I take down the photographs, birthday cards, notable Words-of-the-Day hanging in my Travel and Livings department cubicle here at SL. But before I depart, here are my top 10 reasons to get excited about the September issue of my favorite magazine Southern Living (hey, what can I say? I feel a little ownership.) Can I get a "go team South?"

  1. Kentucky’s Bourbon Country guide written by an editor/fellow ADPi three doors down from my cube. As a new 21-year-old, I could stand to learn a thing or two.
  2. Best hotel lobbies in D.C. I was actually in Annette’s office yesterday and she mentioned that The Williard’s claim to fame is coining the phrase “lobby.” Learn something new every day...
  3. Designer of Hotel San Jose Liz Lambert spills creative décor tips. “I think of the Rolling Stones in the early 1970s. It’s beautiful decadence,” she says.
  4. Maybe I’m just fresh off the shrimp-boat from visiting my friend on Plash Island (victory picture with a catfish to prove it), but Wanda McKinney’s story about the Alabama Gulf Coast nudges nostalgic pride for Stallings summers in the South.
  5. A list of walks through D.C. compiled with help from yours truly, le intern.
  6. In Homes, two antique chandeliers hang from a swoon-worthy pristine white kitchen’s celing. This page shall be torn out and preserved from when I’m out of college.
  7. A list of 12 divine salvage ideas for your home—cue old barn matierials, antique lanterns, and the like.
  8. Stunning photography from a Roswell, Ga. home where weathered meets sleek.
  9. Six New Ways With Corn Bread? The baby chef within me delights. And then I found a Spiked Arnold Palmer recipe. I’m anxious to try as I’m always the girl at the restaurant: “Can I have half lemonade, half sweet tea, please?”
  10. A guide on how to start a running career on the right foot. (Sorry. Had to.)
If you are a reader in one of these states, look forward to some homegrown stories:
Mid-Atlantic Living The architecture-lover in me was thrilled about a blurb on FLW’s Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pa. (snaps for Katie my fellow intern for writing it)
Carolina Living Wilkes County residents turned a underutilized space into Yadkin River Greenway—grab your Chacos and check out this green mecca.
Florida Living Colombia native Beto Perez launched a new Miami work-out trend: Zumba. Now where can I take a class in Birmingham?

What sounds appealing to you?
