To all the fly mamis.

We spent the day at my grandparents' house today, raking up the yard and cleaning things and eating and celebrating all the mamas. Right now I am way down a rabbit hole because of the photo albums I grabbed with Grandma's (somewhat bewildered) blessing, so that I could scan them. I could stay up all night scanning, too, believe me. But I won't. I'll just tell you that there's a lot of this:
40s trousers.
(That's Grandma on the left; one of her sisters is on the right.)

Grandma and Kathryn roosting on a chicken coop.

And my favorite:
My grandma.

Let us not forget my very own mama:
Me and mom in 1975.
The back of the picture says "sad movies always make us cry."

Happy mother's day, y'all.


  1. I LOVE that picture of your Grandmother! It looks like a shot out of "An American Tragedy!"

  2. I love the one of your mom too, with the rad hexagon glasses.

  3. Oh me oh my, I DO think you should stay up all night scanning them. Those are absolutely priceless.

  4. These are super beautiful!

  5. Oh my God, LOVE. Esp. the last one. I want to hang with your mom.

    Oh, and with you too.

  6. Obviously your love of the pantsuit is hereditary!
