When I think of my mom and how much I adore her for infinite reasons, I am humbled that I was born to such an amazing woman who has kept me on the straight and narrow and embodied me with strength, compassion, independence and style.
When I first saw Lauren Hutton, she immediately reminded me of my mother. For many reasons but mainly for her style, natural beauty and her love of everything casual or low maintenance. I believe my dear mum and Lauren are kindred spirits for not following the “trend machine” but more so, creating their own style by following their desire to be true to themselves and never apologizing for it.
No wonder my dad is so enamored by his lady, she is loving and shows it. For mother’s day, my dad surprised her with a trip to Costa Rico. I can imagine them swimming in the pools of azure blue. Both my parents have always made time for each other, while I was younger I always remember how affectionate they were (and still are) with each other; holding hands, little pecks on each other’s cheeks, for no apparent reason. Relationships like my mom and dads are unique for couples who have been together for almost 40 years. I want to be just like my mom when I get married. I want to not only tell my husband I love him but most importantly show him how much he means to me. When I look at them together, I imagine them walking arm in arm as they take a walk. It’s a miracle what love can do.
