Celebrating Mother’s Day in vintage style

She is life, inspiration, beauty, towering strength, grace, wise, caring, responsible for so much of who you are. She is mom, mamma, mommy, ma, maman. Whether through blood or fate, she is yours to learn from, revere, dream, laugh and smile with, confide in, hug, and cherish.
