A Tribute to Aunt Harriet

We all have them... the crazy Aunt Harriet's. You know, the aunt that ran away to Venice with a gypsy king, and lived out her retirement believing she was a descendant of Nefertiti.
While I wasn't blessed with an eccentric aunt whose decorating style inspired me to new heights, I have had those who have inspired me to think beyond the box.
So - the moral of this little tale? If you don't have an "Aunt Harriet", become one for someone else!While there may be a shortage of gypsy kings that still possess all of their teeth, there are still plenty of other adventures to be had. Plus, who knows, someday a niece or nephew might immortalize you?
