Pink Saturday: Mom
Today I'm paying tribute to my biggest fan: Mom! This is the first time I've linked up with Beverly's Pink Saturday and up until late this morning, I was having a difficult time deciding what pink thing to feature first! For more Pink Saturday, click here.
How fitting that my mom would choose today to send me a poem that she'd written five years or so ago! The poem is all about her "pink" daughter (yep, that would be me...). As soon as I read it, I knew that I'd have to see if she'd let me print it here for Pink Saturday!
I'm also showing off my birthday present from Mom. I'm a collector of all things tea-ish and Mom picked out the most beautiful chintz tea-for-one! I absolutely love this special gift and therefore I've placed it in a prominent place on my special hutch amidst some antique books that I'm collecting.
The little flower inside was picked for me by my 7-year-old son, Elisha, on Wednesday as we brought our newest little baby Liam home from the hospital.
Here are Elisha and Liam cuddling together at home:
And...because I know you're curious, here's our whole family in the hospital with baby Liam:
Now, for my Mom's beautiful tribute to me, Tootsie:

My blue eyed joy.
Sassy personality with the generous heart.
Tootsie and Fruitsie will never part.
The strong honey haired teen. Finding her way in the dark.
The storm has passed, she's always ready for the task. always looking ahead.
Giving, giving, and giving.
I live through her life.
My pink beautiful daughter/friend.
I love you, Mom!
