Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day was yesterday, and I went down to CT to visit my family and celebrate my mom with my dad and Sister K. Rather than sending her flowers this year, I made her a floral arrangement of tulips and peonies. I thought it turned out really nice, lots of bright pinks and yellow, and she really liked it. We spent a fun day of family togetherness: going to church, out to brunch, and then watching Seabiscuit at Sister K's place. It was a lot of fun, and I was sad to go, but I will go back again soon enough.

Mother's Day has been bittersweet in our family since the passing of my brother, and I received several notes from friends who were thinking of me this weekend. It reminds me, even though I am away from my nuclear family, that I have a really great urban family looking out for me here in Boston.


  1. It sounds like a very nice weekend.

  2. Hi Melanie,
    I love Masterpiece Theater...and all things British too, especially if they have Colin Firth or Anthony Hopkins somewhere. LOL!!!
    I have a blog on Antique Dolls Art and History, and currently I am posting on the Victorian period. I think you will like it. I'd love it if you check it out.
    I will look forward to more of your postings in the future and I love the photographs. favorite Masterpiece Theater play is "I Claudius".Derek Jacobi is another favorite...What is yours?
