Mother’s Day


With my beautiful, caring, generous mother in 1975.

Up until yesterday, I had absolutely no idea Mother’s Day was this weekend. How did it creep up so quickly this year?

Maybe this was keeping me preoccupied earlier in the week…

Tummy trouble for poor Wito. Very early on Wednesday morning, after a brutal couple of hours with the red bucket, he looked at me with his glassy eyes and said, “I know I’m a big boy and that I don’t do this anymore (it’s been months and months), but may I please suck my thumb?”

Oh, my heart.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing Mother’s Day weekend. I know I can’t wait to bask in the extra kisses and snuggles from the two little ones who have made the past five years truly delightful, red bucket and all.



  1. Happy Mother’s Day! Your mom is gorgeous! :)

  2. This picture is of your 1st birthday, you sat in your cake! I have had 30+ Mothers Days and I am so proud to be your mother. Love to you and happy Mothers Day to you.

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo of your Mom from back then. WOAH. I can see where you get your beauty from.

    Have a superb weekend with your babies, friend. I plan to do the same. :)

  7. Oh my goodness. My response to Wito would have been, “Yes, you may now suck your thumb FOREVER.”

  8. Steph, that’s pretty much EXACTLY what I said to him!!

  9. You are the spitting image of your Mom. Wow! I hope you enjoy your special day.

  10. Gorgeous. You and your mom :).

    Happy mother’s day to you too.

  11. I did a triple-take to determine if this was your mom or you. OH MY GOODNESS. And, you’re both so so beautiful.
    Happy Mother’s Day, and may your poor baby be well enough to shower you with love!

  12. I want to reach into my computer screen and cuddle that adorable boy, bless his little heart!

  14. Happy Belated Mother’s Day! You have a beautiful family, and I had to giggle when I saw Wito’s navy and white striped shirt. It seems both good looks AND good taste run in the family :-)

  15. I’m a sap for neutrals as well. Currently wearing tan heels with a black accent – going crazy on a Thursday!

  16. Love the gold!
