Elle Mansfield, Nevada City, CA.
“A child is never too old…and never too far away…to remember Mother’s Day. My 22-year-old son is serving in the Army in Afghanistan, and a dozen giant, chocolate-dipped, gorgeous strawberries arrived from him via FedEx today. Perhaps the best part was the note, which read: Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy, from your little boy.”
Happy Mother’s Day to Elle, and the rest of our caffeinated moms. And traveling mercies to Marco.
