mothers and daughters

me and hannah four days old.

in celebration of five generations of mothers and daughters in my family. here are my three daughters. i never imagined how much they would capture my heart. it is a bittersweet year for me as a mother. my oldest is graduating and moving on to the next place in her life. she is ready to be on her own now and her life outside the nest is pulling at her. though i don't know what we will do without her. then my youngest will be starting first grade next year and for the first time in ten years i won't have one of my own children in my class.




here are three generations of women who have shaped my life. my mother joan

I see who you get your wonder woman hair from! What a sweet note... can't wait to see you again this week:)

Such sweet eyes on your great-grandmother, Frances. Filled, it looks to me, with all the wonder of what life could hold. It's a true miracle that though you never met her, her life was "handed down" through her daughter.

Happy Mother's Day. what beautiful pics of all the kids, but especially Marina! she's going to be a beauty. that drawing is the most precious thing i've seen (especially since it's about your beautiful hair!) thanks for sharing all the pictures.

that really is the sweetest post - the portraits are stunning but that drawing cracks me up - you should get it printed onto a t-shirt or a throw :-)
