As you all know, this past Sunday was Mothers Day. A bittersweet day for those of us who have lost our mother and are moms ourselves. It is lovely to be celebrated but difficult not to fuss over your own mom. As I've talked about before, I lost my mom over 15 years ago to cancer. She taught me so much growing up, how to be strong, how to be independent, how to strive for what I wanted in life and how to sew. She made all of my clothes (except shoes and socks) well into my teens. I remember thinking it was the greatest thing ever when I got a store bought pair of jeans in the 7th grade! Ha.

Here are a few gems from my childhood in outfits made by my mother. She even made my First Communion dress, which I still have! Not sure what to do with it, but fun to look at. Maybe I should frame it? I've seen people do that with Christening gowns. Hmmm, something to think about. Happy belated Mothers Day to all you moms out there. XOXO--Teresa
