A Mother's Day Note

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Kelly Corrigan.  I posted this last year and I think it deserves an encore performance in honor of Mother's Day.

Hope you have the day that you deserve!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Thanks for making me cry at 8:30!!!!!!! I cannot think of any job in the world I would rather have then the gift of being a mom, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU!!!!!

  2. hope you don't mind but I posted about this post today. you are the first blog I read today and i'm already crying. oy. but it also made me happy because I do believe that although my kids don't say this stuff yet one day they will get it, all the sacrifices we make for them because we love them so. may not happen til they have their own kids but it will happen and until then I can watch that video :) happy mother's day!
