2: Star

Portraits - the Motherhood series. 

Her father returned from war a changed man so he named his only daughter after one of the few places he still saw beauty in this world. He named her, Star. She'll proudly tell you she was her daddy's girl and how much Richard reminds her of him. Star is my mother-in-law. We have been so blessed to have her stay with us over the holidays this year, all the way from Manchester, England. We laughed that she and I seem to have swapped roles. She is a Nana in hightop sneakers, fringed tote bags and leopard print and I have an apron collection and laid out crochet placemats for Christmas lunch. When Richard and I visited England last year, Rich left for home before me and I spent a (fabulous) day in London on my own. Star called me as I was settling in at my hotel for the night to check that I doing ok. Such is her way in making a person feel welcome and loved.

  1. How beautiful...lucky to have a special lady like that in your life. x

  2. How wonderful to have her in your life! What a blessing and a beautiful shot of her!!! A happy week to this new series!!! Nicole xoxo

  3. Gorgeous 'name story' and sounds like a wonderful woman! Mother-in-laws get a hard rep and it's so great to hear good stories. My own is amazing, so maybe I'm biased!


Thanks for your comment, so nice to hear from you. Belinda x
