I was playing around on twitter the other day when I saw a tweet from Katie at Sluiter Nation that included a link, asking if she had an accent. Now y’all can watch this for yourself and decide if she and her hubby have accents, but I felt compelled to tweet her back and tell her that yes, she does have an accent, but I’m allowed to say that because I’m from Kentucky and God talks like we do. We ended up pulling Dianna from The Kennedy Adventures and Miranda from Not Super Just Mom into the fray, and I’m anxiously awaiting their accent vlogs! My thirteen-year-old son, John, agreed to help me out with this one, since even with the tripod I can never work my Flip camera properly.
