For those of you that don’t know me, Emily Johnston, personally… you probably won’t know that I’m a Southern gal from the US of A! I founded FFG in London two years ago after leaving the south for the high flying city. New York City didn’t seem like a big enough leap so I left the country completely! However, my southern roots will always call me home and in fact see me boarding a plane at least six times a year!
I get my southern fix regularly but sometimes you just need some good visuals to remind you of the sweet life. So I’m happy to see that the creators of Gossip Girl are bringing another “Doc Hollywood” type TV show to the network! Hart of Dixie, starring Rachel Bilson, will premiere later this month on the CW. Rachel plays a doctor that is forced to take a job in Alabama after living and studying in New York City.
I suppose we can expect the usual story line… falls in love with the town, the men and the slower way of life! But there is truth in that storyline. Life really is slower and appreciated at every corner. Men really are gorgeous and so gentlemanly. And when it comes to southern towns, there aren’t many places that beat them on charm! So you see…one day this might be my story… a girl leaving the big city for the south! Only time will tell…
