While I was having fun with girlfriends yesterday Alan and Raffaele had fun picking wild flowers including wild fennel. They chose a pickle jar and Alan did the displaying and Raffaele wrote the card. They are 2 different characters and they always manage to pull it together. Alan is my mechanical, wood worker, hands on kind of guy and Raffaele is my sweet angel that can read for an entire day. What a combo! The card reads : Happy Mother's Day! You'll always be the best Mamma we know, and we will never forget to make you a card. " When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her children" (quote) with a thoughtful phrase in it, just for you!
