ode to family


A toast times two this week; my wedding anniversary and Mother's Day. My sweet and patient hubby and I shared a delightful and 'sustainable' wine from on our breezy covered back porch. Tasted like a crisp pear. And tomorrow, off on a relaxing weekend with my family, my mother and daughter included. The warm sun, salty ocean air, a first visit to the beach and no doubt a treasure of shells. I can't imagine a more perfect Mother's Day. To my own mother, thank you for your grace, your dedication, your selflessness and your unconditional love. And to all the mama's out there, the beautiful unsung heroes...cheers.

A beautiful photograph and a beautiful sentiment to your mom. If I were a mom, it would make me cry, reading it.
