This is my favorite photo of my Mom, ever. Ever, ever. She has fallen head over heels with a guy that’s down-right perfect for her. The past two years, she’s practically transformed into a 15 year old girl, all giddy and in love. Iake is sort of my someday-step dad and I love it, because no one has ever made my Mom smile like this. Thank you, Iake, for bringing out the Mom we all knew was in there- You each truly bring out the best in the other, and after 30 years of a marriage that wasn’t quite right, it’s about time for Mom to get the attention and love she’s always deserved.
