Much Love Monday: Mom


Since we celebrated Mother's Day yesterday I thought it'd be fun to share a few things I love about my Mom:
*  She makes everyone feel loved.
*  Her adoration of books (which I inherited).
*  She's quick to use her most powerful weapon--that smile.
*  Her nurturing, caring spirit.
*  She is stunningly organized (which I did not inherit).
*  Her bravery in handling difficult situations.

What are you loving today?

  1. You look like your mom for sure! What a pretty couple of gals you are. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

    Today I am loving a full day to work on my painting...well after the housework is done of course. :)

    1. Yeah, I look a little like her. Haha. I have a twin sister and when we were teenagers people would see us beside Mom and think we were triplets. She loved that! :D

  2. hello, Catherine :)
    first of all, I hope you had a wonderful mother's day!
    your mom sounds like a lovely woman :) and if it's any consolation, I didn't inherit organization either, ha.

    enjoy your day at home!
    thanks for stopping by!

  3. Your mom is just as cute as you! You guys have the exact same smiles. I'm loving today that I can actually stay home. Yesterday I spent hours stuck in a parking garage waiting on a tow truck to tow me home. A very expensive tow bill and I'm sure an expensive repair. Not the best Mother's Day that's for sure. But, it was so sweet when we got home and my son offered to make me a sandwich. ;)

    1. I read it on your blog (think we may've been reading each other's blogs at the same time). Such a sweet, but sad story.
