On occasion Aunt Peggy and Uncle Dennis would take me to Alabama on vacation to visit her parents. That's where I learned to love fried green tomatoes.

One year Aunt Peggy gave me an early birthday present by getting my ears pierced without talking to my mother first. Lucky for me I was in Texas for the summer and my Mom was in Delaware.

Love,
Reneé
