The True Lillie Mae

My grandmother, Lillie Mae, was the one source of constant love in my life. She's been gone now for several years, but we were always very close. She was a farmer's wife and I absolutely adored her. Spending weekends on her farm were always filled with many childhood adventures; playing in the haylofts, attempting to jump from one small pig house to the other without getting bit by the big ole mama sow, but my absolute favorite was simply playing in the open fields. There I felt totally free. I could be anyone I wanted to be, with only my imagination for company. I named my business after her, and I created the Lillie Mae doll in honor of her.
