Last week, my wonderful, adorable, fabulous mother came from Arkansas to visit me. We had SO MUCH fun. We ate sushi, shopped for wedding dresses with my daughter, went to a baseball game and saw 4th of July fireworks, attended an opening at my gallery where she met many of my friends, surprised her with tickets to "Beauty and the Beast" and went to Santa Fe to see the SOFA show. (Sculptured Objects and Functional Art). The day before she was going to fly home, she tripped over our dog and got an ambulance ride and a night in the ER!! She dislocated her shoulder, but was a real trouper and when they got it back into place, she was almost good as new. Here is a photo of the two of us. I love the photo. And I love her. My mom is the best in the world. I miss her.
