I feel like I have a conversation about manners at least once a week. And if not manners, then we are talking about the proper protocol for a situation. I have always loved reading about manners and have worn thin the copy of Amy Vanderbilt’s “The Guide to Gracious Living” which is sitting with me right now, but has a rather permanent home next to my bed (read=loveseat) at my parent’s house. Needless to say, I know my manners. So, whenever there is a question of etiquette, the guys on the campaign usually come to me.
My mother made my morning when she handed me the newest edition of “Real Simple“, my favorite, favorite, favorite magazine. Ever. I was thrilled to pieces when I saw that there was an article on manners and was doubly thrilled to see that it was written by the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post. Her name is Anna and she has a blog! The excitement triples at this point. You can click here to get to it!
Oh the joy that will be mine today as I sip a cup of tea on this overcast day and read my copy of “Real Simple.” Good Morning, simple joys!
