Here I am, waiting for my Mom to show up. What a nice feeling! After living in a different state for over 10 years, it is my pleasure to spoil my Mom today.
We are headed out to Hurd Orchards for a Mother’s Day Tea. I’m really looking forward to being there for fun. It is my favorite wedding location in Upstate NY, so this will be a real treat. And I get to take my Mom there. YAY! Here she is, taken last week on Oxford Street with my new medium format film camera!
As I wait, my thoughts are in several directions. To Liz, Daniela, Ashley and many more MP Brides that are celebrating their first Mother’s Day or are about to become a Mom for the first time (Tabitha, Trisha, Erika….).
And also to Kevin & Brian who lost their Mom very recently…. Jody Duff was a wonderful and vibrant person who loved her family. She was a pleasure and delight to work with this year. She fought long and hard against cancer for the last 4 years and lost the battle a few weeks ago. My heart is with the Duff family today.
It is a great reminder for me to not take my Mom for granted and to make time this wedding season to hang out at the lake with her as much as possible.
