travels




When I was at home I found a spiral note book of my grandmother Audrey's. I stated flipping through it and it seems as though she sat down one day and wrote out all the cities she had visited in the world! It is a pretty amazing list. In college she was a pianist, and then after her children we born she started working for the family company, and would travel all over the world to meet distributors. 
She loved to travel!
