    We love the Southern Women's Show. Mom and I attended for many years before she passed away and we always had a great "girl's day out". There is so much to see, sample, and learn at the show. I wouldn't miss it.

    Haven't been in YEARS but I like seeing all the food stuff. It'd be fun to go again!
