best advice my mother gave me...... pretty is as pretty does. nothing is uglier than a girl with no manners or home training. always write thank you note, by hand. there is always some one who has more than you and someone who has a lot less, be happy with what you have.
favorite childhood memory....traveling as a family. some of our best family moments were when we were traveling abroad. we still talk about our trips when we get together.
favorite thing to do with mom... sit on the beach, watching the sea, feeling the sun and talking.
