Here's to my Mom.
She loved me as a baby...
...and she loved me till the day she died, with all the hopes and pride and worries that I think most moms probably have.

But I think of her as a beautiful bride, one who gave us not only my mom but three aunts I adored.

Here's to my dad's mom. She was lovely, wasn't she?

Here's to all the moms, past and present, the ones we knew and the ones we didn't. And if you are a mom, Happy Mother's Day.
