About

It all started with roadrunner broach.

Growing up I never knew my grandmother but I did have an Aunt Mabel who filled that void in my life. She was a slender, petite and rather proper woman who always wore some type of jewelry. When I would go to visit she would allow me to look inside a glass jewelry box she kept on her dresser. Inside there were so many pretties! But I was always drawn to one piece, her roadrunner brooch. It wasn't a particularly pretty brooch, just one she had picked up on her yearly travel to Texas. I would hold the pin in my hands, climb up on her big bed and settle in to listen to stories of this funny bird. She told of how she and my uncle would see them running down the highways and the sidewalks. The mental picture she drew would make me giggle and beg for more silly tales. She would clap her hands on her knees, smile and begin again. When she was finished I would climb down and gently place that special brooch back in the box. Until the next time. More stories. More laughs. More memories.

Aunt Mabel has since passed, having lived a wonderful life well into her 90's. I think of her often and miss her daily. The special little lady with the road runner brooch. <3
