Whats Important to me: Etiquette

My mom raised me with extreme etiquette rules more than just saying excuse me, bless you, thank you, etc. But how to reciprocate, extend welcomes, thank you notes, host a guest in a your home, how to be a guest, how to be a listener, how to give gifts etc. I sometimes wonder where did it all go- a lot of people I know do not practice etiquette and it's highly frustrating to me. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people do not reciprocate. Anyways I just know that a lot of my followers are from the South so they would appreciate this website I am posting. It's called Emily's Post Etiquette Daily. It has all kinds of tips to know what to do in certain uncomfortable situations or the POLITE OR the correct etiquette. Sometimes I don't know the right way to handle awkward business situations so I always use this site. ;D 

(this is a cute way for a couple to say thanks for their wedding gifts!)

Enjoy-

  4. Hi, I stumbled across your blog through 'And They Lived Happily Ever After..." and this post struck a cord because I feel the same way about etiquette. I have been getting frustrated lately with the lack of politeness from society. Some times it angers me and some times makes me really sad. Anyhow, I wanted to tell you that I really like your Moms quote and I need to remember that when I feel myself getting frustrated because I don't want to get sucked into the rest of the impolite society. :) Thanks for sharing!
