This is one of my favorite photos. Her expression and demeanor is so wistful and dreamy. I think this is right about when she married my dad and moved to the United States. That was about 35 years ago.
Here she is visiting her older sister in New York. It's February and she's about three months pregnant with her first child, me.
She is quite fabulous, isn't she? She and my grandmother used to sew all their own wardrobe. Unfortunately, I have not inherited any of those skills. Maybe it's time to cajole my mom into giving me a few lessons.
love you mommy.
