Today is not only Mother's Day, it's my mother's birthday! Cheryl Pace, you are one of a kind!
It's always been glamorous having such a beautiful woman for a mother. The daughter of tobacco farmers, she went onto to become a debutante and a beauty queen.
My mom married my father in the early seventies. She often designed and sewed her own clothes.
This must have been Christmas or maybe even New Years Eve. I was probably about 5 and even then wore stylish boots.
My mom and dad divorced in the early nineties and my mom started dating Mike who is great. Here we are at a VT football game. I tried to tell her to wear something spirited but she insisted on a mink coat. I don't really have much room for argument here seeing as I am channeling Jackie O circa 1974.
My college graduation.
Kicking up her heels at my wedding. No matter what she is always the life of the party.
Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday Mom, still the sweetest, most selfless and most gorgeous woman I know.
And Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there, especially all the great moms I am friends with and all of the great moms-to-be I know.
