Mom & Me

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mom's out there... and us fur mama's too! ;) Here are some photos of me and my mom - my best friend!
 These are all photos taken on Orcas Island. The biggest reason I wanted to move from Central Oregon to the San Juan Islands in Washington is to see my mom more when she and her boyfriend stay at their place on Orcas.
A lot of people confuse us for sisters. ;-)
Friends forever. I worked with my mom for many years in Alaska at my family's souvenir business and used to see her just about every day. Now I only see her a few times a year and sometimes less than 24 hours since I'm on a different island and we have to catch ferries for quickie visits. (I'm totally crying while I put this post together.)
Cooling off in Mountain Lake in Moran State Park on Orcas Island. I grew up swimming in Wallace Lake in Wasilla, AK at my grandma's cabin.
If you've got your mama or kids nearby today, give them a great big hug and enjoy being together... or give your pup a pet!

Much love, Mamas! xoxo


  1. I would confuse you two for sisters too, your mom's kept herself in shape! Happy Mother's Day!

    1. The women in my family age well. Maybe it's the Swedish genes. ;) Have a good one, Sheena-kay!
