Mother’s Day

Mary Sanford Kinney

Happy mother’s day to all the moms out there! My mom died when I was little, but I always loved her fashion sense. A real tomboy/hippie with some crazy early 80’s glasses, and a chill attitude. She left behind some awesome t-shirts that I still have and love to wear, perhaps I will debut one here soon. Here are a couple of her and I together. Mother’s day makes me sad, but it feels nice to think about her and post these photos.

    What a lovely tribute to your mom. You look so much like her! Can’t wait to see those t-shirts – they don’t make ’em like that anymore.

    Thank you for sharing this intimate post with us. I am always awed at being invited into another’s hiSTORY and with the sharing comes a sense that I understand and know that person a little bit more than before….

    • Thanks, Mulika. It’s always a little weird and scary sharing like this on my blog, but hey, it’s the truth, and I’m certain I’m not the only one with a story like this one…
