I think I must have been in 4th or 5th grade and we traveled to the Biltmore. I told my Mother, when I grow up, I am going to live in a house like that. I had made my little shift dress and shorts underneath and I thought I was all that. Strange to think how time can pass, but I am still this little girl full of Summer Memories and thankful times. Thankful that my Mother had the energy to raise seven of us, to take us places and to instill a confidence in each of us. She truly thought we were all that. As a Mom, I understand how we want those around us to feel special.
