Vintage Mother's Day

A few months ago I took a few snapshots of these photos I consider priceless and have been saving them specifically to post on Mother's Day. 

"We knew"

Oh, how I love my mom. One of my most treasured blog post is this one from Mother's Day 2012. In addition to those thoughts, these photos put me in a very relatable place to her. These pictures of us show her in the stage of life that I am in now. Her third and last baby, who just so happens to also be a (rather cute) little girl (after another girl and a boy before that as well).  

This was also the stage that marked the beginning of us. The only unfortunate thing about our situation is that she had to come before me. That I wasn't there with her for any of the stages that came before this one and that there will come a time where she won't be with me for any of the stages I go through after she leaves. But how I will rejoice now and forever for the time on this earth that we overlap. And for everything she has taught and continues to teach me, and how we can be laughing together one minute and crying the next, and how we totally get each others senses of humor and therefore think each other is super funny...and wise, and how I just have to say "hello" on the phone and she knows something is wrong (only when something is actually wrong though), and how she still (even though I'm 30) has that magical power to make everything okay. Seriously, sometimes it's like things haven't changed a bit since those days in these photos.

Dear Mom, I can't help but to hope one day (I'm sure after this life when you and I are kickin' back enjoying the eternities) I'll get to find out why I was so blessed to have you for my mom. 

I love you--more than I can say. Happy Mother's Day!


  1. So very pretty. Do you also remember that mom was a fantastic tole painter? So many talents.

    Happy mother's day!

  2. I love your writing -- the time on earth we overlap. The beginning of us. What a sweet post!

    1. Thank you, Mary! Coming from you, that's a real compliment.
