Happy Mother's Day

My parents in...1978? Weren't my mom and her dress gorgeous?

Things I love about my mom:

  • She's the only one in the world I can talk nonstop to. And she has to care because she's my mom, ha.
  • She can appreciate and partake in a good concert and geeking out session.
  • She has good style and is a great shopping partner.
  • Speaking of style, we have similar tastes in wedding attire - we both wore lace dresses and had yellow bridesmaids dresses (see below)!
  • She loves my daughter so much, and my daughter loves her.
  • Even though she doesn't agree with a lot of the things I do, she loves and supports me anyway.
  • She's smart, ambitious, and sticks to her values. 
  • She set an example for me for what a mother should be, and I'm trying to live up to it.

I love you, Mom! Happy Mother's Day to my mom, my mom-in-law, and all other moms!


  1. Thank you, Rebekah! Brought tears to my eyes. I love you and your daughter, more than words can say!

  2. Did your mom's dress have a lace turtleneck? Hard to tell in the photos. If so, your mom and my mom wore almost the exact same dress.

    1. Okay, "exact same" may be a stretch, but pretty similar! Lace sleeves and all.

    2. I can't remember exactly from other pictures I've seen, but it looks pretty high-necked to me. I guess that the was cool thing to do in the 70s!

  3. Goodness, she looks lovely!!!! Most other wedding dresses from around that time look hideous!
