- The Big Picture: My Guy and my kids gave me the best Mother's Day gift ever. I guess, while on the trip to the mall on Saturday, they had this photo shoot set up in the middle of the mall. You could have professional pics taken and framed, right there while you waited. The best part? Frick and Frack looked like they really LIKED each other. It made me cry. AND, they were totally dressed as themselves. No fancy hassle and it looked like they were having a ball. I treasure the pictures. Best. Gift. Ever.
- BUSTING at the seams: This is a good thing because this time, it's not my waistline. It's The Candy Bar. Things are at a frenzied pace right now, (which is why I haven't been around much. Sorry) and My Guy and My Dad, (who both did not want me to do this in the first place) are pushing me to expand. I just bought into two new cosmetic lines, which are so exciting and are flying off the shelves, and there just so happens to be a vacant store front right next store. I have been working hard building my clientelle and it seems I may have tapped into a need. I dunno though, I'm not even through a year yet, but I just completed my biggest week ever. Say a little prayer for me....
- Four score and forty years ago: It was Mother's day in 1970 and the Boston Bruins were just on the doorstep of a four game sweep of the St. Louis Blues. In game four of a series tied at 3-3 game in the Boston Gahhhden, a 29 year old rookie photographer took a picture of the goal heard round the world, or Boston..today, a bronze statue called "The Goal" will be unveiled on Causeway Street at the entrance of the Garden. Bobby Orr will be on hand for the unveiling and the statue will join Boston Sports greats Ted Williams and Red Auerabach as bronze legends in the city. Possibly a great omen for this year????
- You're all a bunch of Mutha's: To all my blogger friends, I wish to you and your very own mothers the most love and joy a family can bestow upon their family Matriarch.
It's not an easy job, but most of the time we love doing it.
