Happy Mother's Day 2012

My mom when she was 6 months pregnant with me, looking very chic 


First, I would like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous mother's out there today. Today is your day. I read an article yesterday, in the New York Times, by Timothy Egan, about his last Mother's Day. It really moved me to tears and I feel so lucky to still have my mom with me in 2012. She had me at an older age, now that is pretty common, but it wasn't so at that time. I feel very fortunate to have had such a loving childhood, filled with great memories, and adoration. Being an only child, I really was not spoiled. I was taught you had to work for what you wanted, and had a job while still in high school. I feel I am a younger version of my mom, a little better with the technological stuff, but the class and generosity remains. She is my biggest cheerleader, and for that, I am forever thankful.  
This looks like they were having way too much fun on their wedding day. They really were so in love with one another, a true romance.  
As you can see, the hair was always an important part of my life! Here with my mom, enjoying a nice day outside, and getting some adjustments from my very first hairdresser!

If you wish to read the wonderful article by Timothy Egan, you can do so HERE. It is such a moving tribute to a great lady. If you are lucky enough to have your mom still with you, spoil her like crazy. Enjoy and cherish the time you have, make it the best it can be. 

Thank you for everything Mom! Happy Mother's Day!!
