This picture of my mom was taken several years ago.
Isn’t she cute in her apron and slip on “tennies”? :-)

    1. You're welcome! Aprons are an important part of my kitchen. :-) I wear one a lot. I think wearing a cheerful apron helps my attitude in the kitchen sometimes. :-)

  2. Your Mama is very cute ! She has a wonderful smile.

    1. More than one person has commented to me on my mom's smile. :-) She inherited it from her daddy. I'm so blessed that she lives next door.
