I wanted to share this picture with you. It was taken May of 1983. Thats my mama, very pregnant with my sister. I saw this picture often growing up-- to this day it is one of my Dad's favorite pictures (he just said that the other day, actually). He thinks she is so beautiful all pregnant and hopeful and excited... standing in their nursery, just waiting for their baby to arrive. This photo was on my Dad's dresser for years and I remember looking at it as I was growing up.
Now I am at that same moment of hopeful anticipation... and I love this picture even more.
And I love my Mama even more.
This is gorgeous 'maternity photography' before maternity photography was a 'thing'. Love it!
