Happy Mother's Day!


I just wanted to wish all of you a happy day, whether you're a mother or not. I'm fortunate to have a close relationship with mine and even though there are times when she drives me NUTS!, I'd never trade her in (well...)

I've included 2 (of many photos while us kids were growing up). The first is of me with my mother and her mother. Unfortunately, I didn't get to know my grandmother as she passed away when I was quite young but I do have memories of a wonderful cake with an icing only she could make!

This second photo is of my sister, mother and myself in 1973. I love this one because it reminds me of us being in bed while my mother would read stories to us. A baby brother would join us in 1977.

May you enjoy the memories of your mothers as you create new ones for today!

I loved the pictures! I dress my girls alike now because when they grow up they might not let me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
