Mommy dearest

Because I don't think my hastily mailed card will make it in time... Happy Birthday!

I am so relieved you are safe and sound after your big bang this week. You are my dearest and closest friend, I love you to pieces.

  2. I love pictures of my parents when they were approximately my age. There's the vintage effect for one. There's the passage of time for second. And there is the role reversal effect. All wonderful. BB

  5. This is such a lovely photograph.
    Whenever I get a chance, I always rummage through my parents and grandparents old photos.
    I feel they bring me into another world of sorts.


    Hope you are well, dear.
    Jess.

  7. OHHHH Sweet Ameselle...

    It is i who have been fortunate to have you come through me. You have taught me more about creativity, decorating, dressing, persistance and self assurance than I have ever taught you.

    I admire you as much as I love you.

  8. happy birthday to your mom! i found your blog through bliss yesterday and really enjoyed browsing through. i grew up near your summer house in NH. my parents live in Francestown, a few towns away, and my family and i spend lots of time there still. it's fun to read about that area of NH on someone else's blog!
