The more I read (in my grandmother's book) about my great-grandmother, Bea, the more I want to learn about her. For a person so interested in and close to my family, I'm shocked by how little I do know about her. Reading about her has really sparked something in me, goofy as that sounds. I especially love this quote from my grandmother's book:
When I read that for the first time, I said out loud, Oh RIGHT ON!
I mean, how can you not want to know more about a woman who happily agreed to pack up her six month old baby and go on a road trip from Missouri to Colorado with her husband? In 1914. She was just, I don't know; super cool, ahead of her time, unique.
