This One's For You

Hello dear friends.  This is one of my favorite YouTube videos written and read by one of my favorite authors.  

Happy Mothers Day!

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. Ahhhh every one of those sentiments was so incredibly sweet. I wouldn't trade being a mom for anything! Wishing you an incredible day:)

  2. Have a wonderful Mother's Day Katie!

  3. Kate this has made my day - so why am I crying? My #2 flew down to spend weekend with my Mom and me!! Thanks so much for sharing and hope your day is awesome!

  4. Bonjour Katie! When watching your videos I realize how much I need to improve my English! Without subtitles I am lost... "Fête des Mères" will be on May 31st in France but my son who studies in Scotland whished me a happy mothers day yesterday. I am a lucky mother. A bientôt!

  5. So, I share with you that I have a few tears running down my cheeks........a job that I truly wish to never retire.

  6. I hope you had a lovely Mothers day!
