Happy Mother's Day!!

We got back this afternoon from a weekend trip to Indiana!! Why Indiana you say???

My mom was born there...grew up there...went to college there...met my dad and got married there..... and is buried there!!!
My grandmother still lives there, so we stayed with her for the weekend and had a really, really good visit!!! It was relaxing and had some nice, quality family time with my Nana!!!
I had a very emotional morning as I spent the early part of my Mother's Day at the cemetery....
I will post more pictures of our trip soon; but for today, this is just a "quiet" memory of my loving mom!!!! Happy Mother's Day, Mom..... You always were amd will always be such a wonderful part of my life.... I am the woman and mother that I am because of you!!!
