Movie Memories: Growing Up Scarlett

Today’s submission comes courtesy of the ever-lovely Carley, headmistress of the venerable Kitty Packard Pictorial! In her post, Carley has taken the concept of “movie memories” to new heights, painting a touching portrait of the ways in which she and her mother communicate through classic films–in particular the seminal classic Gone With the Wind. In the process, Carley brilliantly lays out a series of “life lessons” imparted to her through years of watching Scarlett O’Hara’s antics onscreen.

Head on over to the Pictorial to read Carley’s truly engaging essay!
