10th Grade Me

Here is a pic of me in 10th grade.

 That is 15 years ago.  Check out that sparkle in my eye....and the Rum Raisin lipstick. 
I want the sparkle back (the lipstick can stay in 1995).

The Flour Bin

For my first Ode to my Mom.

Today is the 3rd anniversary of my amazing Mother's death. 
She was amazing, lovely, fun and Sassy...everything a mother should be. :)

 So, here in happy tribute to my Mom is one of the things that
remind me most of her.
Her yellow Tupperware flour bin...probably from the early 80's. 
It is seriously one of my prized possessions.

Every time I lift the lid the smell reminds me of baking with my Mother....
I don't think I was that much of a help but she let me try.
It is totally worn and not worth anything to almost anyone
else but it is one of the first things I would grab if there was a fire.

Here it is in all of its glory:

Now, go hug your Mom.
