She was born in 1910 and was feisty as the day is long. Her small stature didn't stop her from making a giant impact on everyone she came in contact. She was brave, college educated and an entrepreneur. And I was blessed to spend many days playing at her house listening to her stories of the old days.   She never met a stranger and never backed down from speaking her mind. Much to her son-in-law's chagrin when she spotted his spittoon (aka an old coke bottle). Her pretty white hair … [Read more...]

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen that I took a hand lettering class a couple of months ago. I love handwriting and always have.
