May Every Day | Mother's Day

May Every Day is a series of daily blog posts for May 2021 sharing days and weeks that we celebrate or observe. Some of these days are well-known holidays while others are more obscure observances, some are celebrated internationally while others are more nationally focused, some are significant while others are just plain FUN!

In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother's Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday here in the US to honor mothers. To celebrate Mother's Day today, I'm sharing a short video of the School Years scrapbook I created for Mama late last year.

Mama had her school portraits and reports cards, plus some extra bits and pieces, and I had a FUN time putting them together with a few stories. (If you are reading this on email, you may need to click over to the blog to watch the video flip through of Mama's album.)

Mama was thrilled with the results, and I snapped a few photos when I delivered the album to create a layout for our 2020 chronological scrapbook.

Happy Mother's Day to Mama 
& all the moms out there today!
Hope y'all have a great day!


  1. What a lovely tribute to your Mother.

  2. It's a beautiful tribute! No wonder she was thrilled with it.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
