My Mother the Pin-Up

Today marks the 6-month anniversary of my Mother's death. Far from being healed, I find myself missing her more & more each day.

To honor her, I took the morning off from work and have spent some quiet time thinking of her, putting flowers on her grave, etc. I plan to make a nice dinner tonight, her favorite dish lightened up just a bit.

Yes, she did love my stuffed shells, followed by cheesecake or cannoli! How she kept herself so thin is beyond me. The photo above was taken when she was in her early 20's, quite the pin-up, eh?

I miss you, Mom..Love Always,


  1. Hey, M ~

    Hard to believe it's been six months since your mom passed - sending loving, healing, peaceful thoughts your way... <3

  2. Hey Hun,

    I just read your latest blog and wanted to make sure you were okay. My mum is my BEST friend and we do everything together, i can't imagine how it feels to be in your shoes, but time is a healer and aslong as you have memories she will ALWAYS be with you. Hugs and Kisses :) Mwah.
    P.s She looks AMAZING :)

  3. Thank you so much for the kind words...it was a rough day and I am not feeling much better this morning. I took the day off and am going to putter around the house, cook something wonderful, maybe do a bit of gardening..Just have a nice ME day. xoxoxo
