happy mother's day


So I made my mom some pretty special little chocolate puddings for mother's day. She's not the biggest chocolate fan, but every once in a while she's all for it and considering I made her a proper roast dinner to go along with it, where she just might have happened to be more excited about the carrot mash then the chocolate puddings.
Total opposite to me right there.
I just wanted to wish all the mother's out there the best of days and to my awesome Mom. Love you!
Here she is rocking a side pony tail back in the day. Love it.

I love the photo of your mom, anyone who can successfully rock a side pony is winning in my book. Wish I could see some more photos of my mum when she was younger! I doubt she ever side-ponied:)

That's pretty silly about the carrot mash... but who doesn't like a good mash!?

Very cute!

The pudding looks delicious too ... seems I know a lot of moms who don't like chocolate these days. Does the mean we grow out of craving it!? oh no! lol

Your mother was quite the looker -- and I'll bet she still is. Lovely chocolate puddings for her, even if they're not a fave. Haven't had it years, myself.

She's beautiful! And looks so happy. Moms are the best. I love going through my mom's old photos (especially because she's no longer around). I loved seeing this photo of your mom, Ash, tks for sharing! And those pots... Yum!
