Happy Mother's Day

A Mother loves right from the start.
She holds her baby close to her heart. 
The bond that grows will never falter.
Her love is so strong it will never alter. 
A Mother gives never ending Love. 
She never feels that she has given enough.
For you she will always do her best. 
Constantly working, there's no time to rest. 
A Mother is there when things go wrong.
A hug and a kiss to help us along. 
Always there when we need her near. 
Gently wipes our eyes when we shed a tear. 
So on this day shower your Mother with Love. 
Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough. 
Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind. 
Be gentle, be good, be helpful, be kind.

April showers bring May flowers

Every year when spring comes around, I anxiously wait for one of my favorite trees/flowers to bloom: The Cherry Blossom Tree. While reading some articles, I came upon some interesting facts about the Cherry Blossom Trees. They were first given to the USA by the Japanese in the early 1900's to celebrate the nations' then growing friendship and ever since then all over the US, Cherry Blossom Festivals are held to celebrate these gorgeous trees.
Take a look at how lovely they look in NYC's Central Park- Spring is finally here!

This was a special honor for her because he was one of the designers that helped catapult her career. Here are a couple of my personal favorites from the red carpet:
