My move this past winter was a merely 3 hours south, you would have thought I moved to a new country.
Bless Your Heart!!
You can get away with saying just about anything as long as you include.. Bless their heart, after it!
There are certainly gals who say it and mean it completely. It is just a natural saying for them, raising in Kentucky. It is so sweet and charming. Such southern hospitality.
I do poke fun at it still. I haven't lived here long enough to be hospitable enough :)
I joke around and tell the kids things like
"Your hair looks like the back end of a muskrat.. Bless your heart! "
"You are going to be doing school until you are an old man, Bless your heart".
Too funny.. though I suspect as time rolls on, I along with all of the other Kentucky enmeshed gals, will be saying it completely without even stopping to think. Cause that's just how its done down here!
I looked high and low for a piece of jewelry or art work that said this well known phrase during Kentucky Review week. They are out there, but not as readily as I had hoped.
I was able to work with an Etsy site 6:21 Treasures to offer you a gorgeous necklace to celebrate Kentucky Review week!!
(And we won't hold it against her that she is in TN, not KY.. cause it's close enough!)
Wear this Bless Your Heart necklace and think of southern hospitality with a bit of tongue in cheek humor.
I covet this necklace as I have only been given one to giveaway to my beloved readers. I must surely secure a necklace soon to wear in my new Kentucky home!
