(I'm a day late posting these wishes, here, but better late than never, right?)
To the nicest, sweetest, best mom in the whole wide world (love you!):
(This picture totally cracked me up when I found it, cuz I look so stubborn and non-cooperative with the whole Santa thing. lol. This 'no' kind of face is still very typical, too. ha ha. Kudos to my super-patient mom for being so wonderful, always - despite my frequent 'no' faces growing up!)
My mom taught me everything I know, crafty-wise - my sister and I grew up learning to sew, dance, paint, draw - everything! - because of/from her. :) She's been the most supportive and encouraging through everything I've chosen to do, and she's such a beautiful soul & a truly strong woman - I admire her, so!
To all the moms in my life and yours - and to lovely grandma's, everywhere, too! - Happy Mother's Day!
And an extra big hug for my grammie Marlene, too.
Sadly, she passed away suddenly last Friday:
I was digging through old photos briefly this weekend and came across these pictures of me & grammie when I was 1 or so, too. I'd forgotten all about them! They're so sweet & made me smile like crazy - but also made me miss her all the more, of course. She will be dearly missed by all of us grandkids.
I hope you had a lovely day celebrating the mom's in your life. :)
