I don't have a ton of pictures of me and my mom together, but those of you who know her aren't surprised: she's usually the one behind the camera. This one was taken last summer on Saltspring Island, and although I love it, I now have tentative plans to acquire some additional photos of the two of us. Perhaps when I visit Saskatchewan in June. It won't be mother's day, but it will have to do. The point is, my mom loves photos. Michael and I were taking pictures on my birthday last week, and after he took the photo of me and the cupcakes (which he made!) he said, "There, your mom will be happy with that." Some of the pictures are posted on Flickr; in fact, I started the Flickr account to satisfy her craving for pictures of our trip to Mexico. When you live so far apart it is a nice way to connect, which is why I'm going to try and convince her to set up her own account. Again, a tentative plan for June. I'm not the best computer teacher, but maybe we can do it if we have a few glasses of wine first. Even if I don't succeed it'll be a fun belated Mother's Day gift. What do you say, Mom?
