I can't believe that it's 5 years since this photo was taken.  Mum had braved the 5000 mile trip and come to visit us in Texas.

We didn't have much planned for the three weeks she was with us but one thing that was definitely on the list was a visit to the Oh La La coffee shop for a latte and a cup cake.

I don't mind admitting that I cried when I saw this picture.  I miss her every day.


  1. Photos of happy times are bittersweet aren't they? How lovely that she got to come over and spend time with you and make happy memories for you to look back on. But that pang of sadness is always there as well. Five years? That has gone by in the blink of any eye. Take care.

    1. It seems like yesterday we were picking her up at the airport in the middle of a thunder storm!!

  2. What a lovely photo of your Mum. I remember the blog posts about the trip to Texas - wonderful memories made to now hold tight to.

  3. It's such a great photo. It's hard to believe she was ill at the time but we didn't know it :(
