Whenever I see this photo of my mum and me, I always smile. We were both laughing about something, perhaps over a funny story. I have such few photos of just my mum and me – I don’t know why. Perhaps we are usually so focused on getting everyone else in the photo.
We live so far away – I in New York and she in Vancouver. I think about my parents a lot, and today on Mother’s Day, I’m missing her. Two cool things about my mum: she has such a great knack for storytelling, and perhaps that’s where my sisters and I developed our tendency to over-dramatize a story! My mum and I also share a favorite pastime: we both love to eat and TALK about food, any kind as long as it’s delicious.
Mum – Happy Mother’s Day to you! I hope to soon feast on good Vancouver dimsum and share some funny stories again with you.
