Each year, as Mother’s Day approaches, it is with great pleasure that we get the opportunity to recount all the beautiful moments we’ve shared with that one very special lady in our life. After all, our mothers (or mother figures) truly are at the very heart of our dearest memories.
Those wonderful memories are usually centered around vivid “togetherness” moments in time, whether in the kitchen, at the park, on vacation, or just about anywhere else in this world. Which is why Blue Mountain decided to create a beautiful new Mother’s Day eCard this year highlighting a collage of exactly those kinds of moments.
In the same vein, we asked our Blue Mountain family to share their own photos of personal happy memories with mom — whether reminiscing of old memories or creating new ones. And here’s what they had to say:
Caroline Leech, Senior Editor
“We were celebrating my son David’s fourth birthday at his grandmother’s house in this photo. He was answering my question, ‘What did you wish for?’ He said he was wishing for a big piece of cake! He’s 21 now and Grandma is gone, but her chocolate cake recipe still stirs happy memories for us.”
Danielle Krouse, Community Manager
“This photo captures pure joy! Being able to experience the first time my daughter got to feel what it’s like to go down a sliding board at the park is something I’ll never forget. I look at this picture and I can still hear her little giggle, and it instantly puts a smile on my face. I’m so glad we were able to capture this mommy/daughter moment in time.”
Deann Hoffland, Marketing Manager
“In this photo, my son and I were heading out for his first Trick-or-Treat. He was the cutest little tiger ever! It was such an awesome experience watching him enjoy all of the other children in costumes and getting all those little treats in his basket!”
Melissa Jamison, Senior Brand Manager
“My son Jack always loved playing in the water for bath time. He’d splash and laugh and laugh and splash! I thought this picture was especially funny because he kinda looks like he’s a pirate saying, ‘Argh, me matey!’ He’s always been a bit of a character, and this showed just one of his many smiley faces.”
Noha Youssef, Assistant Brand Manager
“My little daughter is fascinated with children’s books. This photo shows us opening a book together. I had so much fun watching her explore new things and repeat every sound she heard. She also danced as the music played when she turned each page. I never thought having a daughter would bring me so much joy!”
Maria Isabella, Content Marketing Editor
“My oldest grandson and I were at the Cleveland Zoo the day this photo was taken. He lives out of town, so this was a special ‘date’ for the two of us while he was visiting. We laughed at the monkeys, fed the seals, and shared an ice cream sundae. He still talks about that day, and I still treasure that happy one-on-one time we had together.”
Are there any special “mom memories” you’d like to share with us? We’d love to hear from you! Please leave your comments below.
