Attending a small liberal arts college in North Carolina has its pros and cons. One thing that is a pro is our version of the sorority bid day. Since my college has roughly 1200 students, we consider ourselves one big sorority and share in the tradition of Big/Little Sis, with our bid day being Fall Fest. Trust me, yesterday I saw enough monograms and chevron on posters and coolers to make any Southern belle jump for joy. I know I did.
Whether you are a belle or not, you will get something monogrammed at least once in your life, if you live in the South. Recently, I was talking with one of my friends from the North and she said people don’t monogram things and she had never heard of it until she moved to NC. Wait…what? Did pigs just fly? What is it about monograms and chevron that make it so Southern?
As I sit here thinking about the differences between the North and South, I am so thankful I live in NC and that I am a Southern belle. After all, who doesn’t love monograms and chevron on everything?
