During our trip to Switzerland, my niece and my mom were great partners. They had a lot of fun sharing experiences and hotel rooms (the good, the bad, and the ugly). Thanks for making Europe so memorable!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration

I admire my mother. The last couple of years have been very tough, but she has more than weathered the storm. She has shone and been a light for her children during difficulties. She has shown us what it truly means to be a devoted spouse and partner, and she has kept her kindness and positivity through it all. I love you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day this week.

I realized after I published this that it works for Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Facial Features challenge for this week as well.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love

When my father passed away in November 2014, my parents had been married for 55 years. It was the only marriage for each, and they had complete fidelity for each other. When my father-in-law passed away, my husband’s parents were just shy of their 60th wedding anniversary. They also were only married to each other and completely faithful. What amazing examples.

M&D

Enduring love

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

What keeps me optimistic? Relationships, especially family and close friends. I love this picture of my mother with her living siblings. I believe the only things we get to take with us when we finally shuffle off this mortal coil are who we are at our core (the heart of our matter) and the relationships we have cultivated while we’ve been here.
