My Creative Inspiration

Happy Mother's Day

May 8, 2011 by

My mother was a school nurse for many years in our town’s elementary school system.  She has accomplished so much in her life, but she would not agree as she is very self-effacing!

My mom has tended to making all of the dozens of homes she and my dad have owned into beautiful spaces that bring together our large and extended family, including 7 nieces and nephews. From beach houses to city dwellings, it’s all about everyone else.

She is a lot of fun too, and despite being diagnosed with breast cancer late last year, she rides her bike with my dad up to 30 miles a day several days a week. I can’t think of any other word to describe my lovely mother, other than an inspiration!

The picture of my mom is from the Fab at 50 party for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the birth control pill in NYC this past October.

The mermaid is a symbol that my mom loves as a welcome to our family home on Martha’s Vineyard for the passing sailors to see!
