This is my heart

Ok, this is one of those proud Mom posts, more picture than post so if that's not your thing, feel free to talk amongst yourselves!

June is a big month in our house this year. Every year it's a big deal because it's Mo's birthday month, but this year, she will be 18.

And yesterday, she graduated.Unbelievable. My baby girl, no longer a baby, walked across that stage and got her diploma.

The decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
Elizabeth Stone

She is my heart.
Getting ready.

In her cap and gown.
No shoes, of course.

I wish I could turn back time and have my little baby girl snuggled in my arms, but then I wouldn't get to enjoy the lovely young lady she is today. I am so proud of Mo, she has worked so hard to get here.


  1. What a big day! Congrats to your girl!

  2. The tears - make 'em stop!

  3. Thanks everyone. Gigi- tears, really? I thought I had sprung a permanent leak! Today I was looking at the pictures again to pick one out for a graduation party photo and started tearing up again.

  4. I can remember when I wanted to cry when my girl would walk across the stage but oh well she turned out to be a wonderful daughter and mother and friend....

  5. Congratulations Carol! Your pride shows in your writing. Glad I finally found your blog. Loved your About Me page.

  6. She is so beautiful. A beautiful mom and a beautiful kid -- the world doesn't have a chance.


Say it, you know you wanna!
