Tomory's mother was in town for his opening. I have to say I feel so lucky to have her in my life. She is so thoughtful. She bought us some flowers for Valentine's Day...pictured above...roses and tulips.

I was so stunned to receive some jewelry from her as a gift:
a new ring and bracelet! Both in silver and turquoise. She knows how much I love Native American crafts, especially jewelry. The plain silver bracelet is one I've had forever. Since I was a young girl in high school.

Native American jewelry + the flowers = Georgia O'Keeffe.
Whom I idolized in high school.
I still do I suppose- I hope I look like her as I grow older!
I love her beautiful wrinkles...I always think of her as someone who aged gracefully...someone who was unafraid to let herself look her age.

It is a treasure to have a thoughtful mother-in-law (to be)...I have one myself and it is a joy. Good M-I-L's make good sons!
