My Mom

Today is my mom's birthday & for the past few weeks I've been going through/scanning tons of pictures/documents/interesting mementos to compile on a CD & give to family/friends.

I hope you'll indulge me while I post a few (okay, a bunch) of my favorites:

How lovely to honor your mom by compiling mementos from her life. My favorites from this set are the ones with you - but I really love the one of you in your Easter(?) dress and hat. Oh my cuteness and the excitement on her face is darling.

What a thoughtful way to celebrate her birthday. I loved looking at these photos... there is so much of her in you. (TELL me that first picture isn't you! And, the wall that she's pinning everything up on looks exactly like something you'd have in your house.)

I love the photos of your mom at so many different stages in her life. That smile was her hallmark and didn't change as she got older. I've been thinking of you this week. Sending you big hugs!

Your mom is beautiful! And I agree that the ones with you are so wonderful. Her eyes in that one with you and the light coming in on her face is amazing. I love her!
