This week's photo challenge over at my favorite photography site, "I ♥ Faces," encourages us to show off our favorite pictures of our moms—and though I haven't participated in any challenges of late, I just had to have in on this one. How could I not with this picture of my beautiful mother-in-law, Helen, all up in my iPhoto crates?
I caught this photo of Helen when we traveled together as a family—11 strong—to St. Simon's Island here in Georgia (I wrote about our trip HERE). We had an awesome time, made all-the-more amazing by the presence of Nick's parents, who got to vacation with two of their children and a bunch of their grands. You can tell from the look on mom's face that this was, indeed, a blessing for her. But I hope she knows just how blessed we all are to have her—not just on fancy vacations, but every single day. She's brilliant, witty, no-nonsense, super-loving, and incredibly fun—a class act, for sure.
I'm so proud to count myself in her family.
Love you, Mom!
