Today is a pretty special day. Not only is it Friday (wahoo!) but the beautiful lady above is celebrating a birthday today, and she happens to be our mom. You may recognize her. She’s popped up in several posts and has been our biggest supporter. She enthusiastically cheers on our blogging endeavors and patiently puts up with our photography process when we’re trying to just eat dessert or enjoy a family outing (like Snug Harbor Farm or the farmer’s market). We probably take dozens of photos for every one that gets published.
As you can see, our mother is one of our greatest sources of inspiration. She is where we get our love of stripes, antiquing road trips, timeless, classic style, and taste for homemade cooking. She is the original artist in the family and passed down her creativity to Hayley. We have more than a few beautiful things she’s made including clothes, jewelry, ornaments, stationery, pen and ink drawings… the list goes on.
Growing up I looked so much like Mom that I was called “Little Vicki” and every now and then I catch myself at an angle in the mirror and swear I’m looking at her. Can you see the resemblance? It’s probably one of the highest compliments I could be paid, I think she’s stunningly gorgeous. Thank you, Mom, for all the time and energy and care and encouragement you’ve given us over the years. We love you!
Happy birthday to our beautiful mother! Little Vicki + Hayley
