a Mother's Day tribute to my mother,
Judith Helene Matthews
|Judy as a kindergarten student in the 1950s|
her lovely little cottage overlooking the ocean from two sides and a former seacaptain's home -- so perfect for my mom's sensibilities
my mother's love for animals infused my children's personalities with a passion for nature and animals
I took this picture of mom in Central Park 1975 --
just one of our many fun road trips together
My friend JB over at the Building Moxie got me motivated to write this story because he wrote a touching tribute to his wife about Mother's Day and asked all of us members of The Dream Team (a fun group of bloggers and designers that were sponsored by Brizo during Fashion Week) to all follow suit. I will admit it is hard to write, but cathartic -- thanks Jb for encouraging me to remember mom on Mother's Day and to pay tribute to all the mothers in the world -- big job huh?! By the way, The Dream Team are onto another adventure in June as GEMonogram has now offered to sponsor us for an all expense paid trip to their designer headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky for another collaboration! How cool is that!
