Happy Mother's Day!

Here we are...both of us without our's sad...we both sort of got used to it...and we both think of them every day...but it's always sadder on Mother's Day...the ads, the flowers, the commercials...sort of get to us after a while and we just get a little bit sad. Photos, videos, and memories...sometimes just aren't enough. Sigh!

We get over it but just for this one day...this one moment in time...we both wish we could see what our moms were doing to make us giggle and laugh the way we did in these old photos. I was never far from my mom because I hated not being with her when I was little...and Den...hmmm...Den...he was never far from his mom because she couldn't let him out of her sight for even a minute! Both of us had moms who were our biggest fans...they thought everything we did was we have to cheer for each other.

Here I am on my wedding day with my mom. I wanted an unconventional wedding...with lots of flowers. My dress was a designer STRAPLESS gown but I had to wear a cape in church at

And here Den is on my wedding day with his mom! Everyone argued with me but I did not want a tuxedo clad

To Louise and Helen...

Nobody gets us the way you both did...we miss and cherish the time we had with both of you.
