I was hoping that March would bring warmer, sunnier days but…nope. It has been freezing here and they’ve been predicting ice or snow this weekend. Yuck. I’m ready for spring which you might guess from the color palette of this month’s book club selection. My son gave me Reese Witherspoon’s book, Whiskey in a Teacup, for Christmas this year and I’m looking forward to reading it this month. I hope you’ll join me.

LWD MARCH BOOK CLUB SELECTION
I’m about ready to start spring cleaning but first I’m seeking out some encouragement and ideas. I’ve been delving into some favorite homemaking books and watching YouTube cleaning videos. I’ve done a quick skim of the gorgeous photos in Reese Witherspoon’s book and I think it’s going to become a favorite source of inspiration.
Reese Witherspoon’s grandmother Dorothea always said that a combination of beauty and strength made southern women “whiskey in a teacup.” We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.
Reese’s southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken. It’s reflected in how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her kids—not to mention how she talks, dances, and does her hair (in these pages, you will learn Reese’s fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). Reese loves sharing Dorothea’s most delicious recipes as well as her favorite southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honky-tonks.
It’s easy to bring a little bit of Reese’s world into your home, no matter where you live. After all, there’s a southern side to every place in the world, right?
