Motherly Nostalgia

Since yesterday was Mother’s Day, I thought I’d do a special tribute blog to my mother. I have to admit that I’m showing off a little bit here because I happen to think Mom was absolutely stunning at my age and I had so much fun going through these pictures with her. She’s a former model, a Southwest Airlines alum, 80s hair icon and mother extraordinaire. Looking through old pictures reminds me of how much I love hearing her stories from when she was my age and comparing different life experiences. These images are some of my favorites because they show a woman who is not only beautiful, but who is full of life and joy. Celebrating her and the love she has shown me throughout my life is truly an honor; I am so very blessed.
