I love retail history with an undying passion. Born and raised in West Georgia. I love to be with my family, and my sweet English Toy Terrier, Sadie. All my work I post is always in the loving memories of my Mom, Dad, and my Grandparents, and loved ones that inspired me to follow this rich history. And most of all, I want to give the glory to the Lord, for giving me the ability to write, and tell these stories for the future generations to come.
