I feel so lucky to live in Raleigh, North Carolina. This post is not intended to be smug and I’m not trying to brag. I am literally just trying to show my gratitude and appreciation for a city that has been so kind to me. I came to the American South from a very different culture, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. The people of this city were so kind, and they still are, even though I’ll never be able to fully become a part of their culture since my Northern sensibilities will never be fully shook off enough to spread the true Southern warmth and charm. Every weekend I get to choose which Raleigh golf course I want to play at, or whether I want to take a short trip out of the city to go to one of the many fine courses that are to be played somewhere else in North Carolina.
