Senior portrait - late 50s

Mid-60s - most likely 2 little boys are just off camera getting into trouble

A couple years before I was born, early 80s

How did they cope with empty-nest syndrome?
They got Happy Dog and gave birth to me!

The whole gang

An early mother's day tribute, because who says we can only celebrate the women who nurtured us on the second Sunday of May? 

To my beautiful mom, the only person who genuinely cares about every single little detail of her kids' lives; who sewed us our clothes with her own two hands; who made us breakfast, lunch, and dinner every single day for eighteen years; who showed up to every single play, game, field trip, and spelling bee. 

She only has ever done and will ever do her very best to give us the very best.


  1. My dear daughter Sarah,
    You brought lots of tears to my eyes today as I read your beautiful tribute to me, thanks to the letter M. You have always been such a joy to your Dad and me. We had fun raising you and you turned out to be the very best.
    I love you so much and wish I could give you a BIG hug right now.

    Love from your Mom

  2. I think you ended up with the three very best kids on earth. :) I just sent a BIG hug coming your way.

  3. so sweet! and you look like her too!

    love you grandma!!!
