I love the details in these old photos and how they jog the memory! My grandmother's corsage tells me it was Mother's Day.
I can tell that Mom and I both contributed to the feast because I see my Hadley china and Mom's coffee thermos. What's in the Corning-ware? I see the top of the 3-pronged cane, so this was before Daw's walker. I chuckle to see Mom's pack of cigarettes... before she quit smoking in 1986. But who provided the tiny clay basket with wildflowers? Daw and Mom look so happy and relaxed.
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
